Why the People on the Pier Project?

The People on the Pier Project is an initiative of the Local Studies Department of dlr Libraries. We are keen to grow our collection of pier imagery, bringing it right up to date. So photos of you, your family and friends – and your pets of course are all welcome! If you have older photos you would like to share with us, we would love to add these to our collection also.

About Dún Laoghaire Pier

Dún Laoghaire Pier is 200 years old this year! Since the first stone slab was laid in 1817, people have sauntered, ambled, paraded, perambulated, strode, marched, loitered, trudged and stepped out on the famous East and West Piers. It is a bracing walk as the West Pier is 1 mile long and the East Pier is ¾ of a mile.
