  • One of the areas most beautiful Dublin. You can't come to visit this wonderful city and not go through here. Charming place.
  • I love this harbour. It's great for launching your boat, or for a walk on a nice day.
  • Great for a good relaxing walk. Buskers add nicely to the atmosphere and dont actively seek donations. Sitting at the end of the pier while listening to light banjo and looking out onto the sea is a great means of escape
  • Beautiful pier. Nice walk especially around sunset.
  • Always a nice atmosphere while strolling along the pier. Love the Busker that plays at the end. Great views of the city.
