  • Very nice place. Great views and a nice walk, specially when sunny. You can have a nice hot coffee or even an ice cream! (which I got) The giff was taken at the lighthouse. You should expect the place to be very windy which is nice. Although not that nice when it's also cold. Definitely a nice stop if visiting Dublin.
  • Great walk, especially for couples. Scenic, clean and a great ambiance. A wonderful view back at the s city from the end near the lighthouse, no visit to Don Lsoghaire is complete without a trip to the end.
  • Great place for a walk. Always people there and it is very well kept. Dog owners are very good at keeping it poop clear. Fish Shack and Teddy's ice-cream are great rewards after your walk.
  • A terrific walk. Two piers. Granite glows in the sun! Bracing wind in January.
  • I used to walk the West pier more as it was quieter but the East edge of the East pier similarly has few people, so long as you don't mind walking adjecent to a slope.
