The Harbour, built in the early 19th century and the original entry port for the city of Dublin, remains one of the largest man made harbours in Western Europe.
It has been described as one of the finest artificial harbours in the world. The town of Dún Laoghaire is within walking distance of the Harbour.
Here you will discover all the amenities a modern, vibrant town has to offer – fine restaurants and friendly, welcoming bars, on-street shopping, two large shopping centres, cinemas and a theatre.
Within the Harbour, there is an excellent rapid rail transport system which connects the harbour with Dublin City just 20 minutes away.
Historically, Dún Laoghaire and its surrounding villages of Sandycove and Dalkey have lots to offer visitors – monastic settlements, ancient monuments, churches and the Martello Tower at Sandycove where James Joyce’s stay inspired his great novel, ‘Ulysses’.
