Urban beach gets go ahead in Dún Laoghaire – Ireland

“A €2.5 million “urban beach” and outdoor swimming pool at Dún Laoghaire harbour has received planning permission

.

Almost a year after the plan was lodged by Dún Laoghaire Harbour Company, Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council approved it for development.

The council and the harbour company are to jointly fund the project. It includes an artificial beach and cafe as well as a floating swimming pool with heated, treated seawater built on a converted river barge located beside a berth within the harbor.


The beach will be overlaid on the existing concrete structure of berth 1 at the East Pier in the harbor. Planned facilities alongside the beach include changing rooms, toilets and showers contained in eight single-storey “architectural modular pod structures”.


The development will operate for six months a year.”
