Because of its location, Dún Laoghaire makes a perfect base from where you can explore all that is on offer, not only in the immediate area, but also in the surrounding areas of County Wicklow and of course Dublin City. The many bus routes and the Dart make it easy for visitors to get around. A short journey into the city centre will connect you to anywhere in the country.
But why travel that far when some of the best views and walks are on the doorstep. Take a stroll along the seafront & harbour or walk both Killiney and Dalkey Hills in Victoria Park. Visit the famous Vico Road for the views of Dalkey Island and Killiney Bay. There's always Dalkey Castle and the James Joyce Tower for those who don't fancy the outdoors as much.
Don't forget that every Sunday there's a market in the People's Park. There are also markets on Saturdays in Monkstown and Dalkey Tram Yard and Blackrock Market is open every Saturday, Sunday & Bank Holiday. For more information on local markets please visit our markets page.
