Great little walk

A fab little walk along the harbour. And I was lucky enough to see a seal 😊 The rain didn't put us off. A lovely little town

We stayed at the Haddington and had a beautiful view of the pier. It was fun to walk the pier and people watch. Loved Dun Laoghaire!

On the right day, this area is great for stretching your legs and taking in the beautiful views of the Irish Sea - Howth - Dalkey Island & the 40foot area around Sandycove.

Dun Laoghaire Harbour is the highlight of a visit to this place. You can choose to walk the East Pier, a very wide - marble smooth pier which is very popular with the locals or the West Pier which is a little more rugged (maybe not great for heels) and less populated.

Very pretty harbour. Lovely walk along the breakwater. Lots of places to have a beverage and great food and look out at the harbour. Oliveto at the Harrington Hotel had a great outdoor patio with food and great staff.

Such a great place to go for a walk with friends. I used to study just beside the pier and was lovely to get out of the classroom and go for a walk.

Beautiful views, strong wind. Many photo opportunities. There is quite a bit of thrash in the ocean and on the beach, which was sad.

What a gorgeous town with the most amazing views.....we thoroughly enjoyed walking around the city centre area for some retail therapy of course 😊😊😊 but the walk down along the pier.....well you have to do it yourself to appreciate it. You could stay there forever just watching the time go by
