Dun Laoghaire Harbour Seeks New Cruise Liner Quay

#cruiseliner – Dún Laoghaire Harbour Company (DLHC) is seeking to build a new quay inside the east coast harbour to facilitate to cater for a growing number of cruise liners calling to the capital's waters.

DLHC announced this morning it is working with the Dún Laoghaire Cruise Stakeholder Group to 'engage in an energetic marketing campaign to enable Dún Laoghaire to tap into the lucrative cruise market' coming to Dublin Bay.

Nearby Dublin Port handles the vast bulk of cruise liner traffic into Dublin and it also has plans to develop Dublin Harbour to cater for the massive vessels. In 2011, it announced plans for a new cruise terminal at the city centre port.

As part of the Stakeholder Group work, Dún Laoghaire Harbour Company has initiated a pre-application consultation with An Bord Pleanála under Section 37 of the Planning and Development Act, 2000, in regard to proposals for the construction of a new quay in Dún Laoghaire Harbour to cater for vessels of up to c.340m long. This, says DLHC, will ensure that the harbour is also capable of catering for the 'new generation' of larger cruise vessels.
