A break from city life

The seaside village of Dalkey is a suburb of Dublin. It is hard to believe that the city is not far away as Dalkey has a feeling of relaxation and serenity. There are many large houses in Dalkey owned by wealthy Dubliners who commute to the city. I enjoyed exploring the village starting and ending at the train station, although I didn't spend too long here- there are far too many exciting things to do in Dublin itself. Nevertheless, Dalkey provides a nice contrast to Dublin and is a great place to escape the city, relax and enjoy the sea air and views.
