Worth the 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

Just a 15-20 min DART trip away - very upmarket little seaside destination. Consider staying here for a cheap and good hotel outside Dublin to avoid it's prices. Pretty and quaint - good pubs and restaurants

I always come here during the weekend from Dublin. Such a nice place to run away from the city. The harbor is a great location to check out some ships, boats and sport competitions - photographer friendly. Great ice cream, and very clean surroundings... I highly recommend this place for a date as well - nice views and restaurants.

The Pier in Dun Laoghaire is fantastic for a walk........ a wide, flat surface with lovely views of the bay and Howth Head............Close to the DART station and town centre.

A really enjoyable 3km stroll along the pier, when u get to the lighthouse at the end of the pier, u have Teddy's ice cream kiosk to re-fuel for your return journey up the pier. Really chilled atmosphere with buskers and artists selling their artwork. A walk along the pier never gets old :-D
