Dun Laoghaire
Intro Text 
Dún Laoghaire Harbour is widely recognised as one of the finest man-made harbours in the world. It is also a unique architectural heritage site of national and international importance. The Harbour is widely recognised as the primary location for sailing in Ireland, with 4 Yacht clubs and Irelands largest sail training providers. Dun Laoghaire Harbour transferred into the ownership of Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council (dlrcc) in 2018.
 
While Dún Laogahire Harbour is renound as the centre for sailing in Ireland, traditionally there were few opportunities for the public to engage with watersports without either joining a watersports club, or taking structured lessons. dlrcc wish to change this, and to grow public participation in a range of watersports within and adjacent to the Harbour.
The ambition for this project is to provide a base/facility for public facing watersports providers in this historical setting. Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council is committed to encouraging and supporting the growth in sports participation generally, and specifically in watersports along the coastline and within the Harbour.
 
The proposal should help activate and enliven the space, bringing life and amenity to this part of the harbour.
