This Bangor landmark was named after General Dwight D Eisenhower.

Just a short stroll from the promenade, past Bregenz House (Headquarters to HM Coastguard) take you to the Eisenhower Pier. On the pier, mosaics depict the boroughs role in WWII, including General Dwight D. Eisenhower’s historic send off to the hundreds of Allied ships gathered in Bangor Bay before the D Day landings. It was renamed in 2005 by General Eisenhower’s granddaughter.

Under the pier is a colony of black guillemots, nicknamed the Bangor Penguins.
