Supporting sustainable transport at Dun Laoghaire Harbour

Two new Electric Vehicle Charging Spaces are now in operation at the start of the East Pier in Dun Laoghaire Harbour.

The Charging Mechanism was donated by Volvo Cars Ireland as part of their sponsorship of the 2019 Volvo Dun Laoghaire Regatta.

The parking spaces are provided by Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council. 

Another initiative to encourage & support sustainable transport are a new set of bike racks.

The racks are located adjacent to the start of the west pier in the coal harbour ( beside the Harbour Splash area).

A very big thanks to all involved in getting these initiatives up and running.

They are open and free to all visitors to the harbour.
