  • Great views, a lovely place to stroll/run especially first thing in the morning. Weatherspoons has a top floor with lovely views across the harbour 
  • First sunny day of spring. Prom was thronged - great relaxed atmosphere and option to buy fish & chips, and coffee and ice cream. Great place for a Sunday afternoon stroll when weather is fine. 
  • Went for a lovely walk along the pier which was crowded but enjoyable. It was a gorgeous, sunny afternoon and although chilly the walk was good. The water was so blue it was a delight to see. Watching...  more »

  • A must-do when in Dun Laoghaire, especially on a bright sunny day. Sometimes a musician or two are playing, fishermen are fishing, gulls float in the air above and the views north across Dublin Bay are lovely. A fine, gentle stroll. Sadly no more ferry traffic arrives through the harbour, ending 204 years of connection to Holyhead in Wales.
  • Lovely place for a walk on a sunny day.
  • Walking, sailing. One of Dublin's treasures.
  • A superb place for a evening walk , and a brilliant ice cream place at the lighthouse during the summer
  • Nice place to go for coffee/lunch/dinner or biking but after 13:00 you cannot bike on Harbors
