“Beautiful”
Reviewed 8 May 2013

Have been here many times since childhood, there trip over and back on the boat is always a great experience. It is unspoiled and the views looking back over Dublin to Wicklow are stunning!

“Historical”
Reviewed 4 May 2013 via mobile

I am not sure if you are allowed visit the Island anymore but if you can its worth a visit to see the ruins thereon. Watch out for the wild animals though.

“a beautiful place surrounded by fierce currents !”
Reviewed 9 April 2013

Dalkey Island is beautiful, magic. It is said that slaves where left there for some time because the currents around it are so terrible that anyone who'd try to escape swimming had very little chance to live.
Don't swim to Dalkey Island, watch it from the shore or from a boat.
We often like to do both.

“A nice trip”
Reviewed 3 February 2013

Went here as a kid. Its great on a perfect sunny day in Ireland. It can be windy on the island, but you cant do better for a picnic in Dublin on the coast. I highly recommend for a family or couple to take a picnic and get the boat out on a sunny day. Take a kite, bring a bucket and spade for the kids.
Climb up to the top of the martello tower on the island to look out on the irish sea.

Reviewed 26 January 2013

if you feel like you need a bit privacy and like run from the city, go there, in summer time there is a boat which you can use, great place for a family or romantic picnic
