I walked all the bay and was really nice, there is a little ice cream place at the end of the port. Also there are some street musicians performing doing very nice the experience.

Beautiful harbour except for the new modern buildings being thrown up next to beautiful period style buildings. It's ruining the facade of the coast. We have a lot to learn about planning in our country

All the villages down this coast are very beautiful and Dun Laoghaire is no different. Quaint little pubs and fresh sea air, you have everything you need for a relaxing Sunday just on your doorstep from Dublin.

Whilst it's always been home I've recently begun to see just how lucky we are to call this fabulous place just that. The views are stunning, pace of life relaxed and the people friendly and helpful. Lots to see and do.

We took the Dart train here from Dublin City centre, just to escape the busy city. We walked along the pier and watched the boats. It’s so peaceful, we sat for ages just watching. At the end of the pier was a little coffee booth...More

Definitely worth a few minutes of your time and its free. Have a stroll along the east pier or sit and watch the little sailing boats. A very relaxing place

If you are in Dun Laoghaire cannot miss a visit to the pier. Quiet area, beautiful views. You can even have an ice cream in the pier. Not far away from the Dart station and in summer just in front of the fair, so you...More
