Itinerary: Make a date 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 lively neighbourhoods.

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

1. Rent a bike

First things first: let’s get you sorted with Dun Laoghaire’s preferred mode of transport – a bike. There’s no better way to explore the Dun Laoghaire neighbourhood than on two wheels. So visit Dublin Loves Bikes on York Road and get started.

2. Spin down to the pier

Once fully equipped, hit the road and make the short two-minute cycle over to Dun Loaghaire’s famous harbour area. Cycle the 2.6km return trip around the pier and stop for an ice cream at teddy’s on the way back.

3. People’s Park food market

Hop back on your bike and make the quick journey down Queen’s Road to foodie heaven – the People’s Park food market, held in the open air every Sunday from 11am-4pm.

4. Refuel

After stopping for ice cream and spending an hour in a food market, you can be forgiven if you want to push your bike back up George’s Street. But the day’s not over yet, so refuel at our favourite coffee shop and get ready for your next stop… you’ll need it.

5. Forty foot

Did we mention to bring swimming togs? No? Well, you’re going to need them for your visit to Dun Laoghaire’s favourite swimming spot.

6. Maritime Museum

You might want to slow things down a bit after your previous exertions, and we don’t blame you. Housed in Dun Laoghaire’s 180-year-old Mariners Church, directly opposite the new DLR Lexicon library, the Maritime Museum is filled with stories of discovery, heroism, war and disasters at sea.

7. The Oratory

One of Dun Laoghaire’s hidden gems, The Oratory is a quiet, intimate escape for those looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of main street. The chapel can be visited from 26 April to 17 June as part of DLR CoCo’s Spring into Heritage season.

8. Shopping

A day in Dun Laoghaire wouldn’t be complete without some window shopping on George’s Street, the neighbourhood’s main street.

9. Refreshments

Dun Laoghaire is blessed with a vibrant pub scene, including some of Dublin’s most famous watering holes. Our favourite is the Purty Kitchen on the Old Dunleary Road.

10. Theatre

Round off your day with an evening’s entertainment at the Pavilion Theatre. This modern theatre is a hive of activity and entertainment with performances from national and international acts, as well as a Monday night cinema club.
