Dun Laoghaire Sunday Market, Dun Laoghaire

People's Park is a public park in Dún Laoghaire, Ireland, near the East Pier.
A Martello Tower was previously built on the site in 1805, which can be seen from maps from 1817 and 1821.
The park was officially opened on 29 September 1890. The land had been acquired by the Kingstown town commissioners in 1889 and the park had been designed by J. L. Robinson, an architect who was chairman of the Town Commissioners.
The current system of pathways was in place by 1937.
The park is approximately two hectares in size and is bounded by Summerhill Road, Park Road and a railway cutting.
The gate lodge is at the entrance at the junction of Upper Georges Street, Park Lane and Summerhill Road.
The bandstand is at the centre of the park, with a playground to the east. There are two fountains in the park as well as Tea Rooms and a Garden for the Blind.
Sunday Markets are held on Sundays throughout the year.
The nearest railway station is Sandycove and Glasthule on Summerhill Road.

  • Great venue lots of produce and different eateries from world cuisine. Lovely park great for children and sitting to have a picnic. Live music quite entertaining great on a sunny day. Gets very busy so get there early to find your goodies before they go. Have a stroll through the park and soak up the vibes. Parking is dire dart it if you can or bus. If you find my review helpful please give it a like 👍
  • First of all it is a good spot. A lot of food stalls and the food is good. I love certain Irish products like the T shirts and caps even if its pricey, but the quality is good. And I like the organic vegetable stall. Even if there are plenty of people you will always get a spot for your family.
