  • Great views of sea. Great playground. Compact park. Nice historical setting for the cafe at the top of the park.
  • A lovely townpark in Dunlaoghaire. I had frozen rolled icecream for the first time here at the food market that sets up at the park entrance on Sundays. Also keep an eye out for outdoor cinema screenings that take place throughout the summer...weather permitting.
  • Market on Sunday. Some great food to try. The play ground is suitable for all ages of children. Toilets and a restaurant there also. If weather is good its a perfect place for a picnic and soaking up the atmosphere.
  • Always enjoy the peoples park on Sunday. A growing variety of good quality food and promoting small business
  • Great spot on a Sunday with the open market. Lots of various food stalls so hunger won't be an issue. Nice for a sit down and people watch.
