Dun Laoghaire (pronounced Dun Leary) is a seaside town with many lovely period Victorian houses and a beautiful waterfront. A stroll along the East Pier and promenade (and a Teddy’s icecream) is highly recommended. Dun Laoghaire is renowned for it’s literary heritage, and a visit to the James Joyce Tower is definitely worth a visit, as is the newly opened library, the LexIcon. If you are in town on a Sunday, the extensive and popular Farmers Market in the People’s Park should not be missed. You can also take part in one of the many water based activities, such as Dublin Bay Cruises which cruise along the coast line.
