"Dalkey" Dalkey Tip by MalenaN

Dalkey, Ireland: 6 reviews and 15 photos

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 arrived to Dalkey by foot from Killiney. Going back to Dublin I used the DART.
DART (Dublin Area Rapid Transport) is the train going through Dublin to the villages and towns (suburbs) north and south of Dublin. It is very convenient to use if your doing a daytrip to visit the places along the coast.
Tickets can be bought from machines or the booking-office . At Connolly Station the line for buying the ticket was very long early in the morning, but it was also very quick.

I took the DART to Killiney and back from Dalkey. A return ticket to Killiney/Dalkey is 4.10 Euro (February 2007). The trains are quite frequent and runs every 10 - 20 minutes and it takes about 25 minutes.

Address: Dublin
Directions: It's south of Dublin, just take the DART (train) from Dublin to Dalkey and start walking.
