Dún Laoghaire Harbour is widely recognised as one of the finest man-made harbours in the world. As custodians of this valuable national asset, the Dún Laoghaire Harbour Company (DLHC) has a duty to actively plan and manage the function and heritage of the harbour estate.
The Harbour Company is seeking to bring the 200 year progression of the development of the harbour to the next stage and realise the potential of the harbour as a major marine, leisure and tourism destination. DLHC wishes to enhance its attractiveness as a major gateway for tourists to Ireland, to extend the recreational and amenity value of the harbour, to promote investment in the harbour and to generate sufficient revenue from commercial operations to ensure the long term sustainability of the maintenance programme and marine facility that the harbour provides. The Board of Dún Laoghaire Harbour Company Ltd formally adopted its Masterplan describing its vision for the future of the harbour at its board meeting on Tuesday 4th October 2011.
