Dún Laoghaire Harbour is a fantastic amenity for maritime activities from sailing and wind surfing to fishing and even swimming. But there is also a wealth of areas to be explored on foot, on land.
From the East Pier to the West Pier, the West Breakwater, the Marina Breakwater and the historic Carlisle Pier and Traders’ Wharf, there are plenty of varied walks within the harbour area. There are also nearby coastal walks, east towards Newtownsmith, Sandycove and the Forty Fort, including the Joyce Tower, and west towards the Gut, Seapoint and the many restaurants in Monkstown Village.
In 2012, Dún Laoghaire Harbour Company produced a map of some of the walks you can take in the habour area, complete with distances and descriptions. See the map of Dún Laoghaire Harbour walks here: Dún Laoghaire Harbour Walks.
