Artist's Impression Shows Future for Dun Laoghaire Harbour

#DUN LAOGHAIRE – An artist's impression of a regenerated Dun Laoghaire harbour showing two new harbour marinas, berthing for tall ships, a dramatic canopy building on the Carlisle pier plus extensive development of the waterfront in front of the yacht clubs is on display at the town's East pier.

The poster forms part of the notice of the adoption of the Dun Laoghaire Harbour masterplan under an EU Directive.

"The Masterplan will position Dun Laoghaire Harbour as a marine, leisure and tourism destination of international calibre", said Gerry Dunne, Chief Executive Officer, Dun Laoghaire Harbour Board.

The Masterplan will involve investment of more than €230m, over the next 10-15 years and will result in 1000 sustainable jobs in areas such as tourism, marine service companies, select retail, and food and beverage.
