  • Came here not expecting much and really just to explore more of the outer city. Is a must visit for me. Stunning views across the harbour and plenty of places to stop for a bite to eat and drink. One thing that shocked me was the wetherspoons didn't have GUINNESS! Shocking scenes considering the location
  • DUBLIN harbor with lovely views. For access through bus Dublin 4 or 7a or DART train. Nice spot to relax and walk or there's the yatch club and tours for the rest of us.
  • Parked at Dun Laoghaire shopping centre car park - plenty of spaces, cheaper day rate than any parking on the strand. Then we went to the Pier, had a picnic while we watched the Regatta, and walked down the Pier! Walked to the light-house on the top level of the pier, then down some [narrow - too narrow for a buggy!!] stairs and walked back on the lower level, and off for some ice cream at Scrumdilllys. Yum Yum and a perfect end to a great day. About 4 hours in total.
  • Dun Laoghaire is one of the most gorgeous towns in Dublin. So beautifully maintained, with loads to do and an amazing market on a Sunday!
  • One of the areas most beautiful Dublin. You can't come to visit this wonderful city and not go through here. Charming place.
