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

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.
