Urban Splash

Make an Urban Splash in Dublin! The beautiful Dublin Coast is truly where the city meets the sea. There’s a host of activities to enjoy on land and in the pristine waters of the Irish Sea. You can learn to sail, enjoy a thrilling trip in a power-boat, or try paddleboarding, kayaking and surfing. Dive in for a sea swim or just relax on the beach. Go fishing or take a cruise and learn about the incredible Dublin Bay UNESCO Biosphere. Hire a bike or simply go for a stroll and enjoy the breathtaking views.



TWOBEANS Coffee have been going from strength to strength since setting up in a coffee truck in 2012, serving various locations around Dún Laoghaire / Monkstown including Monkstown Dart station, East Pier, Scotsmans Bay and Harbour Plaza at the entrance of the old Stena line (at a time where Dún Laoghaire port was the only EU port with no cafe!). They opened their first bricks and mortar shop at 11 George's Street Lower, Dún Laoghaire in February 2014 and in 2016 were crowned World of Coffee Ambassadors for the World Barista Championships held in Dublin.
