Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Good clean harbour. Great for a walk. It's usually always busy enough with people walking, cycling, skating or rollerblading down the piers. It's a good walk up to the lighthouse.

Dún Laoghaire is an excellent place for walking. I love going here with my family. The harbour itself is very scenic and the lighthouse is really nice.

A lovely harbour, with beautiful views across the bay. Both piers have interesting walks. Well worth a visit!

Beautiful place for a walk. The pier is quite long, walls around the pier protect from winds. There is also a small lighthouse, you can’t get in, but you can walk around. Beautiful sea and coast views. Definitely worth a visit

About three miles if you walk the entire length and back. Benches here and there in case you are weary. One public toilet at the far end in okay shape if you are desperate, as are old ladies too often. Great views at every step. Perfect on a sunny day. Bring a jacket on a breezy day as there is not much shelter.

The place is one of the more posh- if not the poshest- of all Dublin, so if you're more into the intimate and 'real' places, look somewhere else. But granted, the pier, harbour, the wrought iron gazebos are all quite pleasant to see in themselves. But again, on a sunny day there are as many people as on a Monday morning city train.

This has to be one of the best areas to walk in Dublin .
On a sunny day it is really a must to do .
Walk along the pier and then take a break to go and sit on the rocks and watch all the boats pass by .
Great way to pass a few hours

Lovely afternoon here especially as the weather was lovely and sunny. Had fish and chips from the Fish Shack van on site. Lots of people around enjoying the view across the harbour. There are boat trips as well, check online for times. Ice cream and coffee vans also around.

Place is clean and stunning always get excited to return everytime. Nice place to sup and take a walk. Only thing is I noticed dog poop not being picked up by people. Such a horrible thing in a beautiful place.
