Progress on the redevelopment of the Dun Laoghaire Baths site on Dublin Bay continues apace with part of the newly-built pier and jetty now clearly visible in the Scotsman's Bay area at the back of the East Pier.

When finished the jetty will provide access to the water's edge for swimmers and landing points for canoes, kayaks and other water sports equipment. The new pier will extend approximately 15m beyond the end of an existing concrete feature permitting swimmers to enter deep water clear of the rocks at low tide. 

A newly commissioned statue of local former Sandycove resident and Irish nationalist Roger Casement will be sited at the end of the new pier.

As Afloat.ie previously reported, the new Dún Laoghaire Baths, which has been designed by DLR Architects' Department, will see a new public café linked to an outdoor terrace with views over the Bay, along with studio workspaces for artists and new lifeguard facilities. New public toilet facilities at street level will be fully accessible for the mobility impaired.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
