Dalkey is a truly fascinating and interesting location and is a designated heritage town situated at the southern end of Dublin bay with a small island lying off the tip of the mainland called Dalkey Island. It has a strong historical lineage and is famous for its literary associations, with many writers making their home here.
The area has two early Christian churches, dating back to the 10th Century. One is on the island and the other is located in the town, access is through Dalkey Castle and Heritage Centre. Both are dedicated to the 7th century saint, St.Begnet.
During the Middle Ages, Dalkey was the chief port for Dublin, a hub of activity and an important centre of commerce. It was fortified town with six castles and two of these castles still exist. One is the heritage centre originally Goat’s Castle and the other is Archbald’s Castle.
The location is difficult to equal, with a myriad of restaurants, cafes, shops, boutiques and pubs located side by side. Public transport links are excellent. The house is five minutes from the railway station and the bus stops five metres from the property’s front gate. It is a prefect location for touring Dublin, Wicklow and the Southeast region. Superb sightseeing, a wonderful array of seafront walks, hilly climbs amidst a landscape of hills and sea. There are excellent facilities for entertainment and amenities. You can just meander through the narrow winding streets, wafting with historical heritage and lineage ready to be explored. Just stroll though the centuries and enjoy the sea air.
