We took the five-minute trip across to the island. Travelled back in time visiting the Martello Tower, St. Begnet's ancient church, hung out with the goats and seals and enjoyed an amazing view of the coast from Dun Laoghaire to Greystones. Lovely for a picnic,...More
We kayaked to the island from Dalkey harbour (challenging as the sea was choppy!) The island is small but really pretty. There are goats wandering round and you can check out the Martello tower and the abandoned buildings. Apparently you often see seals there too.
Highly recommend a trip out to dalkey island. Full of wildlife from birds to sealions, rabbits and goats . We spent a few hours exploring the island , we travelled over and back with Ken the ferryman from coliemore harbour highly recommend him.
John was our helmsman with his faithful Bowser, he on four legs.

We saw the church, Martello Tower...More

It's from colimore harbour. If you look it up on the internet or fb you'll see the times. But he's always there. Probably starts around 11. If I find out later I'll post it for you. He literally crosses over to the island... More
It's from colimore harbour. If you look it up on the internet or fb you'll see the times. But he's always there. Probably starts around 11. If I find out later I'll post it for you. He literally crosses over to the island, comes back and goes over again. If there are people there waiting. So not an hourly thing or anything.
