Killiney Things to Do

    From the beach you can see the obelisk on top of Killiney Hill. The hill is 153 metres high. Walk up there and you will have an amazing view over Sorrento Bay and the Wicklow mountains in the distance. In another direction you will see Dalkey Island.Killiney Hill is together with Dalkey Hill part of Killiney Hill Park. The area is crossed by many...

  • Walk on the beach

    I went up very early my first morning in Dublin and went straight to Killiney (bought breakfast at the station).After I arrived to Killiney I took a walk on the beach. I walk every morning to work, but how much nicer wasn’t it to walk here on the beach, listening to the sound of the sea and smelling the sea.I was not alone on the beach. Several...

    DART (Dublin Area Rapid Transport) is the train going through Dublin to the villages and towns (suburbs) north and south of Dublin. It is very convenient to use if you’re doing a daytrip to visit the places along the coast.
    Tickets can be bought from machines or the booking-office. At Connolly Station the line for buying the ticket was very long early in the morning, but it was also very quick.

    I took the DART to Killiney and back from Dalkey. A return ticket to Killiney/Dalkey is 4.10 Euro (February 2007). The trains are quite frequent and run every 10 - 20 minutes and it takes about 25 minutes. Try to sit by a window on the left side, facing the front, when you go to Killiney and you will get a fabulous view over the bay as you approach Killiney.

Killiney Warnings and Dangers

  • by Mariajoy Updated Nov 5, 2006

    This notice (which is tiny, high up and covered in graffiti) - tells visitors to STAND WELL BACK from the beach when the car ferry is in sight as it causes large waves to wash over the beach... and this can last for up to 20 minutes. Hmmm.... not the safest place to take the family on holiday..

    Oh and the little yellow sign means the beach suddenly drops away...

    No wonder the cafe has fallen derelict.

Killiney Off The Beaten Path

  • Dalkey

    Dalkey is a lovely small town 8 km south of Dublin, it is actually part of County Dublin. In medieval times Dublin’s most important port was here in Dalkey, and still Dalkey has some buildings/ruins from that time. The town has a rich history and some nice shops, pubs, art galleries, a Heritage Centre and nice walks. Together with the fact that the...

  • Dalkey Island

    From Killiney Hill you can see Dalkey Island, which is just off shore from Dalkey. You can clearly see the Martello Tower and the ruins of St Begnet’s Church. There is also a St Begnet’s Holly Well said to cure rheumatism.Finds have been done showing that there have been settlements on the island already in late Mesolithic 4500 BC. St Begnet’s...

Killiney Favorites

  • Killiney Hill Park/Victoria Park

    Killiney Hill Park and the path through the woods to return to Fitzpatrick Castle hotel were awesome. Well worth the walk.

  • Killiney Hill

    or.... "the one I didn't climb". It takes about 30 minutes and it is very steep... but the views are fabulous I'm told.

  • View from Vico Road

    The road to Dalkey is very scenic. On the left hand side is Killiney Hill - it takes 30 minutes to climb and the views are stunning - I didn't do the climb but I was reliably informed!! The views from the road are pretty good anyway.
