Free Days Out in Dun-Laoghaire and Rathdown, ROI

Dun-Laoghaire and Rathdown Council recognises that Dun Laoghaire Rathdown has an outstanding built heritage, both archaeological and architectural, with the highest concentration of protected structures outside of the Dublin City area.

This diverse range of structures includes Dolmens, early Christian churches, tower houses, sites of industrial archaeology, maritime structures including the harbours and Martello towers, Georgian houses, Victorian terraces and villas and early 20th C. International style houses. These structures should be valued as a unique and special finite resource for the County.
