The charming town of Dalkey with its medieval streetscape is attractively situated on the southern end of Dublin bay, only a half hour drive from the city centre. Dalkey Island, lying off the tip of the mainland, was first inhabited around 3500 BC by Stone Age settlers. Other neighbouring attractions include the James Joyce Museum, Shaw's Cottage, Archibold's Castle, Killiney hill and the Cill Inion Leinin church as well as the chance to do some celebrity spotting since Dalkey has become a most fashionable place to live. The unique 8th century church of Saint Begnets is situated on Castle Street, next door to the Goat Castle, which is home to the heritage centre - a marvellous place to begin your tour of Dalkey.
