Explore Dun Laoghaire

The harbour is the main attraction here in Dan Laoghaire and is the focal point of its many leisure activities. At the seaside you can stroll along the shore, swim, sail, fish, windsurf, scuba-dive or enjoy the high speed exhilaration of the exciting SeaThrill rides around the bays.

A walk around the town is the best way to discover some of Dun Laoghaire’s sites. The Town Hall exhibits beautiful Venetian-style architecture, especially its colourful stonework, large arched windows and circular balconies. For many generations Adelaide House has always been occupied, and interestingly, it is the only house in Dun Laoghaire with two doors at the front of the property. The National Maritime Museum, celebrating Ireland’s maritime tradition, is also well worth a visit.

Dun Laoghaire boasts a wide variety of restaurants to suit everyone’s palate and budget, as well as cinemas, theatres, nightclubs and pubs playing traditional ‘diddle aye’ music. Visit Smyths Pub, which not only retains an ‘old world’ atmosphere, but is legendary.

Daytrips out of town allow you to savour the pleasures of the countryside. Nearby are several quality golf courses for you to practice your swing, while there are countless footpaths to explore in the county’s hills. One such path is the famous Wicklow Way, which takes you through South County Dublin and on into County Wicklow, which is a walker’s paradise.

The closest airport is Dublin International; from there it is only a short drive to Dun Laoghaire. Car rental services at the airport are Hertz, Budget, Avis, Europcar, and Dooley. Book car hire at Dublin Airport in advance and suppliers such as Thrifty, Enterprise and Sixt are also available.

A well developed highway makes easy access to the eastern side of Dublin, though Ireland generally doesn’t have an extensive highway system, and many routes out of the area are provincial roads.

Frequently asked questions

Is the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).
