  • 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
