Owner description: Dun Laoghaire Harbour is a much-valued public amenity used by thousands of people each day for exercising and sight-seeing as well as the facilities provided for the sailing and yachting communities. The harbour is developed and maintained by the Dun Laoghaire Harbour Company who have a masterplan for the future development for the harbour believing that it can become a marine and leisure tourism destination of international calibre.

We sailed into the marina. We had been here many years ago and the problem is that the visitors berths are away at the end of the pontoons. You have to walk almost 0.5 km to get out of the place. For that reason we had tended to go to Howth instead. This year however Howth was busy so we came back here.

There is a barge with toilet, shower facilities near the end of the pontoons but only one shower and one toilet were working when we were there. I am sure it will get fixed.

It is a good marina, excellent facilities and very well run. Staff are friendly and helpful and it is short train ride into Dublin. The station is just across the road from the Marina.

When you start to look about the town there is a lot more going for it than you first think.

My only negative comment (other than the long walk) would be that it is getting quite expensive and the extra costs would mount up if you were to stay awhile.

I probably will go back and not be so dismissive of it in the future in favour of Howth. There are certainly great walks around the piers.

If you walk both piers, this makes a decent walk. There were a lot of people doing the same. Beautiful day and a beautiful harbour.

I really loved this pier. Great view, quite place, fantastic ice cream ať the very end. Good for dates, families with kids but also just for a nice little walk on your own.

The Dun Laoghaire Harbour is a great place for strolling and an ice cream, if the weather permits. Great views of the water and buildings in the far distance. We had a hotel room with a balcony that looked out upon it and it was so very pleasant to sit out there a look out upon the water. The sunrise in the morning was spectacular and will be in our memories for a long, long time.
