Reply To: Dun Laoghaire Baths
I’m with the locals on this. Neither should be built, the pool should be restored as a public amenity
Tonight’s vote goes ahead against the backdrop of strong opposition from many locals who believe the site should be restored to its former glory and opened as a public amenity accessible to all.
The baths complex dates back to 1843 when it was developed as the Royal Victorian Baths. It was later redeveloped as Kingstown Baths between 1905 and 1911. It closed in the 1980s when it became too expensive to maintain. Its condition has steadily deteriorated since then.
