The Pier offers a beautiful walk regardless of time of year and it offers something different each time. My favourite is Spring through Fall as there is a Fish and Chip Shack and there is nothing like fish and chips on a pier watching people find a bench a mooring and enjoy. It also offers coffee and ice cream along... More

I have not seen too many harbours to beat Dun Laoghaire, the surroundings, location and views are great and make for a very pleasant day out, well worth a trip out here

Although there is not much to do in dun laoghaire in my opinion, you can not fault dun laoghaire pier. It Is alway very clean and is well maintained, and on a calm summers day, it's the place to be.

Worth a visit during the summer as you can stroll the pier or visit one of the many restaurants on the coast (mao's, Gourmet Burger, Henhouse) or stop in for a 99 at the famous teddy's not far down the road. Not a place for a winter visit as it can get very cold from gusts coming in off the... More

Dun Laoghaire pier has long been a favourite with Dubliners. If you are visiting Dublin and would like a breezy walk with super views then take the Dart south bound and get off at the station of the same name, the trip should take around 30 mins. There are two piers with the lesser known being found after a 5-10... More

What could be better after a night on " The black stuff" than a refreshing 1.5 mile walk along the harbour wall. Trust me, you will love if and feel so much better!

My wife and I took a long walk along the pier and promenade at Dun Laoghaire whilst staying at the Royal Marine for the weekend. It was a typical autumn day with bright sunshine and a cold breeze with the sound of the sea close by. The Council are obviously investing in the facilities along the seafront which will only...

I fished off the pier here for many years; the mackerel are bountiful in August. I have sailed here for years and its a wonderful place to use as a base with first class yacht clubs. Excellent restaurants are only a stones throw away with fish top of the menu..as you would imagine. My Mum lives nearby so I love... More

A good long walk in a safe, modern environment. Wonderful sea views. Bracing sea air. The local environment has lots of amenities and this is a popular spot at weekends.
