Work at Dun Laoghaire baths site continues on Dublin Bay. Architects say it will not only provide a connection between the People's Park (immediately behind the building above), but will also link the town of Dún Laoghaire with its seafront.

Marine works continue at the new Dún Laoghaire Baths site, where the old baths buildings have now either been completely demolished or retained for the next stage of the project that will ultimately see a new public café linked to an outdoor terrace with views over the Bay.

Dun Laoghaire County Council also say there will be studio workspaces for artists and new lifeguard facilities. It's hard to see progress from seaward with new hoardings erected recently but Afloat.ie's landward photo (above) shows off the extent of works to date.

As Afloat.ie reported previously, new public toilet facilities at street level will be fully accessible and a new jetty and changing areas will provide access to the water's edge for swimmers and landing points for canoes, kayaks and other water sports equipment.
