Dalkey is an amazing little place. Again on the DART line out from Dublin, it is a small village which dates back quite a while. There is an old Norman tower in the centre of the village. It is located on a small headland, as such no major roads lead through the area and it is fairly quiet at the best of times. In this small village there are 7 pubs. I'm not sure if I can remember all of their names, but for sure you'll find a good pint in McDonaghs, The Club, The Arches, The Queens, The Kings Head or the Sorento .

One of the best things about Dalkey is that it's bedrock is granite. Back in 1840 when a pig pier was needed in Dun Laoighre all of the rock was quarried from Dalkey. The resulting quarry, Dalkey Quarry, has become home to Irish climbers and is where I cut my teeth on trad climbing.
