New Dun Laoghaire Walking Trail
Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council, in partnership with Fáilte Ireland, has launched the Dún Laoghaire Harbour Walking Trail, an immersive experience which allows visitors to delve into the heritage of one of Ireland's most historic harbours.
With stories highlighting courage, craftsmanship, commemoration and the Crimean war, the trail provides a deeper understanding of the Harbour and its significance to the area. The trail consists of 10 key points of interest along the coast and the East Pier and also captures some of the best views of Dublin Bay. The new trail also complements the newly-launched Dublin Coastal Trail.
The Dún Laoghaire Harbour Walking Trail has been made possible with the support of Fáilte Ireland's Destination Towns Programme, which aims to encourage visitors to discover Dublin and spend more time in its towns and villages.
Fáilte Ireland’s Helen Cole said:
“The project brings the town’s unique history and heritage to life in new, innovative ways and greatly compliments the Dublin Coastal Trail which encourages visitors to explore the wealth of experiences and activities along Dublin’s scenic coastline. The trail will also help improve visitor flow to the area and will encourage visitors to stay longer, further spreading the economic benefits of tourism to the local businesses in the town.”
