Reviews for Dun Laoghaire Marina
All facilites and close to YC, 2016-08-10
Captain: , North Shields (300)

Stayed here at the start and finish of the 2016 Round Ireland Race.
Large full service Marina, close to all the delights of the impressively located Royal Irish YC.
Pricey and a walk into town if you need victuals but if you are berthed at the far end furthest away from the shoreside facilities there is a 'shower barge' well placed so you don't have a long trek to the main facilities.
Avoid the pontoon at the far end where the seagulls seem to congregate en masse to feast on pickings from the fishing boats and consequntly leave a great mess.

Large full service marina with 5 star facilities, 2013-01-05
Captain: , Kinsale, Cork, Ireland (257)

This is a large c. 1,000 berth marina with all the facilities which a visitor needs.
Its very well run, and facilities are modern and spotless.
Lots of local fare avaiable both in the Town of Dun Laoghaire, a significant suburb of Dublin, and from the 4 yacht clubs whose buildings line the sea front.
Rail service to Dublin city centre only a 2 minute walk from the marina.
Several local supermarkets
