Update: 18/9/2017: Tenders for the Baths project have been received and are currently being analysed.  

Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council is proposing works at the Dún Laoghaire Baths site to provide for the continuing public use of the area.

The scheme proposes the retention and securing of the existing Baths Pavilion for use as artist workspaces, a gallery café and for the provision of public toilet facilities.

It also proposes the removal of dilapidated structures to the rear of the Pavilion to permit the creation of a new route and landscaping that will connect the walkway at Newtownsmith to both the East Pier and the People’s Park.

Finally it also proposes to extend the existing stormwater overflow at Newtownsmith Green (directly adjacent the Baths) out to sea by a distance of approx. 50m, infilling of the existing saltwater pools, and creating new enhanced facilities for swimming and greater access to the water’s edge by means of a short jetty.
