Your Guide

“Known as AP or more formally as APD.

I was born in Dun Laoghaire  three score years ago.  

My parents and grandparents were also born in the old borough of Dun Laoghaire(then known as KINGSTOWN) so I am not only from Dun Laoghaire I am of Dun Laoghaire. 

I have travelled extensively but still find the promenade and environs of Dun Laoghaire to be among the most attractive maritime vistas on planet earth.

Come Walk Dun Laoghaire with me.”

Walking Tours depart from the Tourist Information Centre  on Marine Road, located in the foyer of the County Hall.  Tours are less than 5miles/8Km over level terrain.

You  will be guided through Dun Laoghaire’s memorials to Kings, Queens, Writers, Heroes and  Villains.

See Dun Laoghaire’s iconic 19th century buildings.

Stand at the very point which is connected with one of the world’s greatest literary masterpieces.

When the sun graces us with it’s presence we will read the time on a mathematically accurate sundial, we will see monuments to tragic heroes and victims of war and we will laugh at the girth of Georgie Pordgie!
