Dalkey is a town in the county of Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown, about eight miles south-east of Dublin, the capital of Ireland. It has a mild climate, with high rainfall and occasional extremities making it an ideal summer resort.
This heritage town named after the offshore Dalkey Island was founded as a Viking settlement and later gained importance as a sea-port during the Middle Ages.
With a population of a little above 8,400 inhabitants, this town is one of the wealthier and prettier parts of Dublin and is home to some popular personalities like U2 band member David Evans and F1 racer Eddie Irvine. Famous playwright George Bernard Shaw spent his childhood here.
Being mostly a residential and tourist area, it has no major income-generating industries. The people go to the city or south, to Bray, for work.

Overall Guide : 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... more 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.
