Dun Laoghaire is a lovely sea town in County Dublin.
It's lovely to walk or skate on the pier, especially in spring (it can be too cold or windy in winter, but the Christmas lights are lovely.)
There is a nice cinema and a lot of lovely restaurants (particularly Toscana and GTI.)
On Sundays, there is a market in the People's Park.
Nice cafés close to the seafront: Innocent, Moka coffee.
A great way to spend a rare sunny day is to enjoy the Dun Laoghaire causeway. The procedure is simple: Go to the causeway, walk wherever you want, and enjoy the views. Tired? Sit down on a bench and watch the people go by. Or, go to the park and join a frisbee game. If you're overloaded on sights and pubs, Dun Laoghaire is a great place to take a vacation from your vacation.
