  • Beautiful place in Dalkey to spend the day and see seals and different local birds. You can get the ferry to the island and walk around for 8€.
  • Took a Dublin bike, cycled down the coast, jumped off the 40ft, cycled to the harbour, left bike in the boat shed, took boat to the island, spent 3hrs rambling, enjoying the sunshine, climbing on rocks, talking to the seals, took boat back, pint in Finnegan's, dart back to Dublin, best day ever 😉
  • Great place to visit during the summer
