Intro Text 

Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council assumed ownership of Dún Laoghaire Harbour in October 2018. The 200 year old harbour has a long and distinguished history and is one of the finest man-made harbours in the world. It is an integral part of Dún Laoghaire and gives the town its unique sense of place.


At the time dlr assumed ownership, the Council expressed its commitment to maintaining and upgrading public access to this remarkable amenity and working to maintain the sustainability of the harbour in conjunction with exisiting and future stakeholders. To help safeguard the future sustainability of the harbour, the Council is bringing the former former ferry terminal to the market and has retained the services of Lisney Estate Agents to manage Expressions of Interest in this regard.

The former ferry terminal building extends to approximately 7,000 sq. m. (75,000 sq. ft.) and has change of use planning permission in place, as are other relevant licences. Planning permission includes space for the use of audio and visual media studios and workshops, agri/food/beverage R&D space, work spaces for marine and maritime associated use, marine technology R&D space and a restaurant. A ten year planning permission has been granted, with the option to extend for a further period of 5 years subject to a further grant of planning permission.

This is a great opportunity for the right occupier to provide a positive economic impact on Dún Laoghaire town through the management of this landmark building and offering spaces and services to the business sector. The property enjoys superb views over the historic harbour and Dublin Bay and has parking for approx. 95 cars for occupiers and visitors to the complex. It is also very well served by public transport.
