    We were there when there was some type of fair with entertainment, food trucks and carnival rides. It was a fun time for all. The walk out to the end of the breakwater is very scenic and easy to navigate.

    We were strolling for a swim at the 40 foot which is adjacent to this Martello tower. When I seen it was open my interest peaked. The tower celebrates James Joyce and Ulysses which was based in Dublin. In fact, the tower itself features.

    We were met by two fantastic volunteer guides who really made the experience. They were knowledgeable and passionate about Joyce. As a trio who had not every read Joyce, we learned so much in a short time. I would recommend this museum to anyone as it is the perfect place to learn a bit and climb Martello tower!

    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

    Big shout out to this lovely man, Frank. My son and I visited the @maritimemuseumofireland in @dunlaoghairetown and we enjoyed a wonderful and interesting tour of the exhibits. Frank pictured here with my son was exceptional, his knowledge is second to none and to hear about some of his maritime adventures he has had so far in his life was a privelidge. It was also a lovely connection to discover that he went to school with my Dad Ken and his brother Norman in the Mariners school many moons ago. And he also remembered my uncle Doug as "the little one" which was lovely.
    Highly recommended as a day out in Dun Laoghaire.

    Every Sunday the people park hosts the , market, (mostly food), the locals and tourists flock here in droves especially on a sunny day, with the beautiful gardens and plenty of lawn to lounge about on this event is the perfect way to spend a Sunday, we like to enter at george street upper, enjoying the park, down the harbour side there are stalls along the metals walk and at the library park area to enjoy, if you have time the pier is also an enjoyable walk.

    Moving Hearts concert was Brilliant. I used to go every week to see them in the Baggot Inn. Classic sound of Davey Spillane and Keith Donnell on the wild wind instruments. El Maestro Donal Lunny gently conducting a 9 piece band of legendary status.May we see them again and again...

    This tiny little Oratory - with the most amazing artwork & decoration by Sister Concepta (Lily Lynch) ...
    This year 2020 - a hundred years ago that she started decorating the space behind the Statue of the Sacred Heart and commissioned the Studio of Harry Clarke to do the stained Glass Windows too .
    An inscription on one of the windows read: Pray for All the Donors of this Oratory 1920.
    But it was built by the Monks Brothers 1919- commissioned by the Dominican sisters as a Peace Memorial after WWI.

    The Peoples Park in DunLaoghaire is a great spot to relax. They run an extensive farmers market here most weeks. Nice views and restaurant.

    Fabulous place but money should have been spent housing families. People would enjoy culture if they had a safe place to call their own

    Killiney Hill Park is an amazing place to dog walk, run jog or relax. The views from all sides of the hill are simply stunning.

    Once a year it’s worth a visit to see this old and new church still standing. It’s well worth a visit.

    We brought 5 kids from 10 to 15 here one Saturday. It’s very easy book online and very easy to get to. We had our waiver pre signed and boarded the docked boat around 20 minutes before our slot. Wet suits and helmets are provided and kids are briefed before the get in. They get a full hour of uninterrupted fun jumping, sliding and mainly laughing. It’s great craic to watch too. I’d definitely recommend it and it’s not bad value either.

    Covering more than 3k's this is a very peaceful, walk from the harbour of Dun Laoghaire, to Dalkey, it was built back in the day to transport stone/rock from the quarry to the harbour, for its construction, now a paved walkway, running along the train tracks, It is not the most scenic of walks however, very peaceful, and the easiest way to walk to Dalkey.

    I remember a lot of negative comments about this church when it was built. However it has been accepted over time. It’s an interesting design and “inclusive” in style.

    Located within Dun Laoghaire harbour is this structurally stunning building reminiscent of a light house, probably not a stand alone attraction, however with a look during a walk of this beautiful harbour.
