My head office is based here and it a very pleasant place to visit. Everyone comes out to stroll down the harbour and there are plenty of lovely restaurants. One day I'd like to visit for pleasure rather work.

Really nice on a stormy or sunny day. Great free thing to appreciate. Not so good to run on as it's too solid. Also, take time to see the back of the pier. Harbour is lovely to see the boating activity

The harbour breakwater is a great place to take a walk. We watched a class of small sailboats learning to maneuver and right their boats. There was a seal, people fishing and numerous sea birds.

It took 42 years to construct the Dun Laoghaire harbour, from 1817 to 1859. So take at least a few hours to walk the promenade and soak up the wonderful atmosphere.

The east pier is about a mile long and makes for a lovely brisk walk. We visited on a lovely sunny day. The views out to sea and the sea air is a delight. All in all it's a really nice way to spend a few.hours and is easily accessed from the dart

Lovely walk along the harbour must be followed up with an ice cream from Teddy's. For just a couple of euros you get enough ice cream to sink a shop - it's like a meal! Go for Oreo dipped - delicious!
