We visited by sailing yacht in July 2018, easy safe approach. Entrance to marina is on the right after entering harbour and is initially obscured by overlapping breakwaters.

Nothing better than walking the pier on a sunny day . Exploring the old Light house at the bottom of the pier. And enjoying a Teddy's ice cream while watching the boats on the sea a peace of paradise in the heart of dun laoire

All I can say is that it was a pleasant walk but the Harbour is no where near as impressive as the aerial view!

The harbour was built for a visit from Queen Victoria. It was a very romantic walk along the spit. I would go back in a blink of an eye to walk along and breath the air and feel the breeze on my face.

This busy and popular harbour has had plenty of visitors during the recent heat wave. It’s a place to avail of a cool breeze and to take advantage of the stunning views that it affords. Lots of eatery’s and watering holes nearby also.

Great place to stroll on a sunny afternoon after dinner. Lots of ice cream vendors including the wonderful Teddy‘s. Fresh fish Kiosks as well. Spend delightful hour and get a lungful of bracing Dun Laoghaire air. Fully recommended.

We sailed into the marina. We had been here many years ago and the problem is that the visitors berths are away at the end of the pontoons. You have to walk almost 0.5 km to get out of the place. For that reason we...More

If you walk both piers, this makes a decent walk. There were a lot of people doing the same. Beautiful day and a beautiful harbour.
