Royal Marine Road, Kingstown (now Dun Laoghaire), County Dublin, Ireland

scan0231cAnother pre-1922 image.  Kingstown became Dun Laoghaire after Ireland gained independence in 1922.  On the left is the entrance to the Pavilion Gardens.  It is long gone, but a new Pavilion was built in the last two or three decades where there are lots of restaurants and shops.

  1. I know this area so very well. Thanks for the reminder of what it looked like long ago. It’s still a lovely place and I couldn’t imagine a nicer way to start the day then take a walk along the D.L. pier!
