Discover what's on offer in Dún Laoghaire
This wonderful map provides details on the many activities on offer in Dún Laoghaire Town, which boasts a theatre, museum, farmers market, artisan shops, unique boutiques, fine food and easily the best Ice Cream in Ireland!
Twin piers arc serenely into Dublin Bay as boats bob within the protective arms of the harbour they form. Along the shoreline, striking modern architecture compliments terraces of elegant Victorian townhouses, the harmony of old and new. Dún Laoghaire is coastal cosmopolitanism, yet you can sense the fishing village at the heart of this historic town. Take a stroll or a cycle along the seafront – try kayaking or paddle boarding if you’re feeling adventurous.
There is the National Maritime Museum, theatres, galleries and exhibitions to enjoy, not to mention festivals and free heritage tours. While away a few hours in the beautifully ornate People’s Park – but be warned, it gets busy during the Farmer’s Market on Sunday! Step one street in from the seafront and enjoy the hustle and bustle of a town centre where high street fashion sits comfortably alongside unique boutiques and artisan shops. Wander into one and you’re as likely to leave with a first edition as you are a vintage dress or French pastry. Stop for a bite to eat and savour the sizzle of fresh fish in a seaside restaurant, or enjoy the craic and a traditional music session in one of the many traditional pubs. Located in the UNESCO-designated Dublin Bay Biosphere, Dún Laoghaire is a coastal gem where the mountains meet the sea.
