Dalkey is a lovely small town 8 km south of Dublin, it is actually part of County Dublin. In medieval times Dublin’s most important port was here in Dalkey, and still Dalkey has some buildings/ruins from that time. The town has a rich history and some nice shops, pubs, art galleries, a Heritage Centre and nice walks. Together with the fact that the town is situated along the beautiful coastline makes it a great destination for a daytrip out of Dublin city centre.

    I’ve never heard of this town, but it looks like a fine place for a day trip from Dublin.

    Another great page, Malena! I did not previously know about Dalkey. Looks like a great day trip from Dublin. I especially like your transportation tip about the DART. Looks very convenient!

    Dalkey is one of the nicest places in Dublin. Haven't been out here in years so it's good to see it on VT.

    That does look like quite a nice hike over the hills to the coast! Another great little page on Ireland.
