Dalkey Castle and Heritage Centre reviews
Definitely take the tour, worth every penny. Views from the top of the tower are amazing.
A fun and informative place to visit. Rather than the usual tour, re-enactors explained the history of the castle and ruined chapel which was very enjoyable as their enthusiasm for their subject shone through. There is also an interesting section on literary and artistic people like George Bernard Shaw and James Joyce who have lived or worked in Dalkey.
