Intro Text 

Arising out of the successful Large Scale Sports Infrastructure Grant award from the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport in 2019, Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council, together with Irish Sailing and Diving Ireland and the local watersports community, has been working on plans to increase watersports participation in the harbour and county through the provision of improved facilities.

This project proposes integrating the existing facilities and targeting additional infrastructural investment to improve and develop additional facilities, thereby creating a National Watersports Campus, providing a wide range of different watersports facilities. The role of the campus will be to support new and existing stakeholders and activity providers and help to develop watersports for the benefit of the entire community, and it will encompass the harbour area from Seapoint to Sandycove.

Following consultation with stakeholders, the working document outlines the National Watersports Campus concept for Dún Laoghaire. To read the document, click here.
