THIS AREA HAS BEEN BADLY NEGLECTED
There are plans for a new walkway between Dún Laoghaire’s East Pier and the Dún Laoghaire Baths in 2023. Unfortunately, much of this area along Queen’s Road has been badly neglected for decades.
While I was in Dun Laoghaire I could see the Cruise Ship “Carinval Pride” at anchor in the the bay. Carnival Pride is a Spirit-class cruise ship operated by Carnival Cruise Line. Built by Kværner Masa-Yards at its Helsinki New Shipyard in Helsinki, Finland, she was laid down on March 30, 2000, launched on March 29, 2001 and completed and delivered to Carnival on December 12, 2001. She was christened by American scientist and astronaut Tamara Jernigan in Port Canaveral, Florida, on January 7, 2002.
Carnival Pride has 1,062 passenger cabins. She is currently based out of Tampa, FL.
