Dún Laoghaire

Dún Laoghaire (pronounced and occasionally spelled "Dunleary") is a port city some 10 km south of Dublin, Ireland.

Get in

By train

From central Dublin by the DART suburban railway. It is also a stop on the mainline rail service from Dublin to Wexford and Rosslare.

The Dublin and Kingstown Railway, constructed in 1834, was the first ever railway in Ireland.

By bus

The town is served by a frequent bus service and the railway station is the terminus of the 46a, the most frequent and heavily used bus route in Dublin.

By boat

By Stena Line ferry from Holyhead in Anglesey, north-west Wales. This is one of Ireland's main sea links with the UK, but since 2010 it has become a seasonal service which only operates between early April and mid September.

Get around

A number of years ago, Lower George's Street underwent pedestrianisation, placing a ban on all general traffic with the exception of bus routes toward central Dublin.

Dún Laoghaire boasts 11 bars and 4 nightclubs, mostly centred along the main street, Upper George's Street. They include “traditional Irish bars” like Walters, Scotts, Wiers & Dunphys.
