Dun Laoghaire Marina

Dun Laoghaire Marina is located in the historic harbour of Dun Laoghaire on the south shore of Dublin Bay.

Dun Laoghaire Marina opened for business on St Patricks Day, 17th March, 2001. Dun Laoghaire marina has grown in success and capacity with space for 820 boats. The marina can be accessed 24 hours by boats of up to 4m draft. Berths are available to suit boats from 6m to 30m in length and a maximum displacement weight of 80 tonnes.

Dun Laoghaire Marina is a Five Gold Anchor rated marina with everything you expect from a high standard marina. Friendly and knowledgeable staff that are always on hand to assist you, is part of what makes Dun Laoghaire Marina special.

The Harbour itself was completed in 1859 and was originally intended as a harbour of refuge. Dun Laoghaire is conveniently situated within a short distance of Dublin city centre. There are train and bus connections to the city that stop in front of the marina. There is also a direct coach transfer from Dun Laoghaire to Dublin airport with a journey time of just 45 minutes. There is also a passenger ferry connection to the UK which departs daily from Dun Laoghaire Harbour.

The town of Dun Laoghaire itself is home to a vast array of amenities. This includes two shopping centres, a chandlery, banks, pubs, restaurants and a multi-screen cinema all within easy walking distance of the marina.
