Beautiful pier, however as a sea-side resort it would've been lovely to have a few stalls along the pier and music playing!

This seems to be a busy harbour with lots of boats about. It is nice to talk a walk around and see all that is happening there.

Walked down the east pier and saw many yachts and boats both moored and going in and out of the harbour. There were about 4 well known old yacht clubs on the harbour

Nice place for a quick walk along either one of the piers or even a nice ice cream from a nearby shop. It's usually kept clean and safe.

This is a great day trip from Dublin. There is a lovely waterfront walk with art along the way. There is also a lovely park and some good restaurants. Our favorite was Olivetti's for delicious, homemade pasta.
