Dalkey: Attractions and more...
An afternoon walk along the roads of Dalkey gives a glimpse into some of the important attractions of this town. There is Castle Street, which at one time housed seven castles dating back to the twelfth century. Two castles still remain today: Goats Castle which has been converted into the Town Hall and Archbold’s Castle.
Dalkey Castle and Heritage Centre gives information on the history and development of Dublin. Torca Cottage is where Bernard Shaw spent his boyhood years. Killiney Hill Park, gives an enchanting view of the city and Dun Laoghaire harbour. Coliemore Harbour, built of granite from the Dalkey Quarry in 1869, is believed to be one of the smallest in Ireland.
The Heritage Week in Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County in August is an important event for the townspeople. There is also the Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown Visitor Week in June with entertainment facilities for the whole family.
