what are you sailing? there are three big clubs, the national, royal irish and royal st george. the harbour can be tricky to launch from i you have no engine. seas can get big in dublin bay. if u leave yr car unattended for 5 microseconds you'll get a ticket. there's no nearby camping, hotels and bb are expensive and dont get me started on the price of beer.....

others speak highly of it tho....

Just seen this thread.

We had a great Wayfarer UK Nats at Dun Laoghaire (Eire, I know, I know) last month, at the National club.

Sailing-wise there are different areas you might be using, but in the one we used just left of the harbour entrance, I could only say it's the usual thing of 'get inshore out of a foul tide', though the tide wasn't really that strong during our stay.

Yes, prices in Euroland are high at the moment, but we had a very nice B&B - Ophira - who in turn recommended a great pub to eat in: Walters (best Guinness I had while over there). Overall a good trip.
