Itinerary: A family day out in Dun Laoghaire

Neptune Apartments at Honeypark, Dun Laoghaire is Ireland’s first built-to-rent development, specifically designed with the modern renter in mind.

Each deluxe apartment comes with a bespoke furniture package and a whole range of residents-only services, not to mention an enviable location in one of Dublin’s most desirable areas for families.

With that in mind, we’ve picked out some of our favourite things to do for families that are just a stone’s throw from your new home in Honeypark.

1. The most important meal of the day

Kick-start your day with a yummy family breakfast in one of our favourite local spots, The Giddy Goose café on George’s Street.

2. Walk the pier

Dun Laoghaire’s famous pier is a short stroll from the Giddy Goose. So whether you fancy a brisk walk or just want to sit and watch the world go by, Dun Laoghaire pier is the spot to do it.

3. Grab an ice cream in Teddy’s

An institution in Dun Laoghaire and something you definitely won’t be able to walk past without stopping with children in tow.

4. Visit the Maritime Museum

Not your typical stuffy old museum, this Dun Laoghaire landmark has plenty to see and do for the little ones.

5. Take a dip or build a sand castle

The Forty Foot is one of Dublin’s best-known swimming spots and is frequented by young and old alike. It’s best enjoyed on a calm summer’s day, so if the weather is not in your favour, bring your bucket and spade instead.

Never too old to build sandcastles 🏰

6. Pack a picnic for the People’s Park

The People’s Park is near Dun Laoghaire town centre, just off George’s Street and Queen’s Road. The children’s playground is a great feature and you can always stop into the Tea Rooms if you don’t have a picnic basket.

7. Stroll along the seafront

Dun Laoghaire has some of the most impressive sea views in Dublin, with excellent cycle lanes and walking paths all along the coast.

8. Go sailing

Whether you are an experienced sailor or would like to try Dun Laoghaire’s favourite sport for the first time, you’ll find something for all levels in the harbour.

10. Family night at the cinema

After a jam-packed day of activities with the family, there’s just enough time to catch a movie before bed.
