The Dun Laoghaire market takes place in People’s Park and is one full of people gathering around every Sunday. It’s especially beautiful on a sunny Sunday, surrounded by families with kids, lovers holding hands – artisans with stalls of new and innovative vendors.

5. After all this food, the best thing you can do is go for a stroll on the Dun Laoghaire pier. The view is incredibly relaxing and you’ll find more food stalls in case you missed on Teddy’s earlier or want to enjoy some Fish & Chips.
