New Dock for Cruise Liner Passengers in Dun Laoghaire

#CRUISE LINER – Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council and Dun Laoghaire Harbour Company have announced the completion of a new Tender Facility to accommodate large cruise liners in Dun Laoghaire harbour. The new facility will also have a range of other local uses. The facility was funded by both organisations.

In addition to the arrival of the tender facility, Dun Laoghaire is preparing to welcome the first in a series of Cruise ships for 2012 on the 24th April. This Cruise call marks the 1st phase of cruise calls to Dun Laoghaire this summer which promises to provide a significant economic boost to the area.

According to Gerry Dunne, the CEO Dun Laoghaire Harbour Company and Owen Keegan, County Manager of DLR County Council the arrival of the new facility is very positive in that it provides great access for the tender boats carrying passengers from large Cruise Ships that dock outside the harbour in the bay.

Large Cruise ships that heretofore could not bring visitors to Dublin can now avail of this facility to land thousands of new tourists into Ireland. The public will also benefit from the facility as it can be used for training purposes and the operation of Boat Tours around Dublin Bay and to Dalkey Island.
