We caught the Dart train out of Dublin to Dalkey, stopping off at Black Rock on the way back. What a great little journey.
I love the fact the Irish are total chatterboxes on trains, unlike here in the UK (but we Latins and the Irish do have the joy of a good natter in common!) and tickets are inexpensive.
Planning the journey was easy, finding the station entrance in Dublin, not so easy..
It was around 10 stops out, along the coast. Nice views and good to take some time out from the city.
We were initially headed for a castle, which really wasn't much to talk about, but we found a great pub there as always and enjoyed the scenery. (It's the journey that counts, right?)
On the return journey, we had lunch in a high street pub in Black Rock and visited the market. Didn't buy anything, but it was pleasant to look around.
Dalkey nice village located on the southside of the city along the coast around 15 mins from the city centre you can get here very easily by taking the DART train. Theres a few bars and cafes where you can get some lunch....theres also a beach and some nice walks along the coast with good views over Dublin bay
This picture shows the back of Dalkey village and Dalkey Island with a protective tower built during the Napoleon's time....I should have more pictures soon....
Visit this lovely suburb in the south of the city. A lot of VIPs are having their houses here, like Bono, Damon Hill, Eddie Irvine, Lisa Stansfield etc....It´s a nice place right next to the Irish Sea!!! Have a walk at the coastline!
Good views over Dalkey beach...nice place for a picnic or few beers on a nice warm Irish summers day....
