Dun Laoghaire (formally Kingstown) Harbour is a very pleasant Place to visit, south of Dublin, about half an hour on the DART (train). Plenty of seating and some good coffee shops nearly. Interesting buildings around as well. I noticed that a time capsule had been...More

The East Pier affords a pleasant level walk which will not tax those who find mobility a problem. Can be busy in fine weather but the Teddy's ice cream at the old barracks at the end of the pier is a great treat for most...More

Piers are great to walk down and back regardless of the weather. There are two great piers which I reviewed separately. Always a refreshing experience - and it's free and healthy. A number of sailing clubs ! Recommended.

Lovely walking experience though if there was a force 7 or 8 blowing it could be a very long walk! On a more positive note, there is ice cream to be had at both ends of the East Pier!

Beautiful harbour except for the new modern buildings being thrown up next to beautiful period style buildings. It's ruining the facade of the coast. We have a lot to learn about planning in our country

All the villages down this coast are very beautiful and Dun Laoghaire is no different. Quaint little pubs and fresh sea air, you have everything you need for a relaxing Sunday just on your doorstep from Dublin.
