Family Scavenger Hunt Walking Tour

Have a great day out in our town with our new Scavenger Map of Dun Laoghaire’s curiosities that make our town special.

Digital Dun Laoghaire have launched their ‘Hidden in Plain Sight’ scavenger map as part of Heritage Week 2023.

The new map has been part supported by DLR CoCo’s Business Area Promotion grants and is the third in a set of guides which Digital Dun Laoghaire have created for the town, the first two are the Historical Walking Tour and Walking Tour of Dun Laoghaire’s Murals.

Dún Laoghaire is a lively and picturesque coastal town full of the old and the new with its mix of Victorian architecture and modern shops. Dún Laoghaire also has a rich history, in particular being one of the first towns in the country to change its name in 1922 to its original Irish one.

While the harbour and the pier walk attract many thousands of people and social media posts on a daily basis, few of these visitors venture the short walk to the commercial heart of the town. One of the goals of this new resource is to attract families and tourists to the commercial centre of our town.
