Our home

Our home is a family friendly, house in the centre of the village. Close to excellent cafes pubs, restaurants and shops as well as the train station, 2 beautiful harbours and spectacular walks. Swimming in the local harbours, beaches and off the rocks is a cold but fantastic experience. Only 15km from Dublin (25 mins on the DART) and close to the mountains. The house is on 3 floors with a sunny garden. We have stated 6 people but one bed extends out to accommodate another person.

Property features

Who we are

  1. We are a family of 6 who love the outdoors - particularly if it involves water. I am a sea rower and my husband sails. We both swim in the sea. We have lived in Dalkey for 14 years and love it. It has everything you could want - within a 10 minute walk you can be eating in a fab restaurant, drinking in a gorgeous pub or wine bar, listening to live music in one of the local bars, walking along the stunning coastline, jumping off rocks into the beautiful irish sea, sailing, rowing or catching the Dart in Dublin or out to Wicklow. You don't need a car as everything is walking/ train distance but if you do have one you can access the mountains or the big shopping mall.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Beautiful, 4 bedroom, red brick, Victorian terrace, right in the heart of Dalkey Village. 2 minutes walk from cafes, restaurants, pubs and the rest of the charms of Dalkey, without being noisy.

The house has 4 bedrooms and can sleep 6 people although one bed can turn into a double accommodating a further person if required.

The property has maintained lots of the original features including high ceilings, open brickwork, original floorboards and the original working fireplace.

The space

This is a happy family home in an excellent location.
We want people to enjoy our home and the friendly neighbourhood. We would be delighted to recommend activities or places to eat and drink to make the most of your stay.

Our house offers quick access to the village itself and to the local attractions. The Dart (train) into Dublin city is also less than a 5 minute walk and will get you there in 30 minutes. This same Dart will also take you south to the seaside towns of Bray and Greystones. This is a beautiful train ride along the coast.

Dalkey is a beautiful village, steeped in history, which is evident with the castle located in the centre of the village. There are plenty of things to do from swimming in the sea, rock climbing in the quarry, enjoying the history in the castle, fishing from Bullock Harbour, sailing, kayaking and you could even do a spot of skiff rowing. Dalkey is located at the foot of the Dublin and Wicklow Mountains with a variety of hikes to enjoy.

Dalkey offers a fantastic range of pubs and restaurants as well as fabulous delicatessens and health food shops. Not forgetting the famous 'Finnegan's' pub where Michelle Obama went for a pint and where a variety of celebrities will often be spotted.
