This morning, the Viking Venus cruise liner anchored off Dun Laoghaire Harbour, marking the beginning of the 2024 cruise season that runs from April to October. The season includes 80 visits by cruise liners to the south Dublin town.

The Viking Venus is a small ship that has won awards and has verandas for all its 930 guests. Due to its size, it can dock where larger ships cannot, the company Viking claims.

The 745-foot ship arrived in Dun Laoghaire just after 7 am and immediately disembarked passengers by tender.

The 2024 cruise programme for Dun Laoghaire Harbour is available to download below.
