The Visit at Dalkey Castle & Heritage Centre
The Visit starts as soon as you arrive in Dalkey. Dalkey is a beautiful place, with a village atmosphere. It is easy to reach, just 30 minutes south from Dublin city centre. Dalkey Castle staff and the locals are welcoming to visitors. Bono brought Michelle Obama to Dalkey for lunch, so you never know who you might meet!
Maeve Binchy did not want to live anywhere else.
If you want a special interactive experience, where you will have some fun and learn a lot, then we are ready and waiting in Dalkey Castle to entertain you!
Dalkey takes its name from the beautiful island on the coast. The Visit at Dalkey Castle begins with our guides who have secured an excellence rating from Tripadvisor and they strive every day to hold onto this distinction. The Living History actors are part of every tour and they bring a smile to all faces. You will be invited to participate and if you just want to watch that is fine too. The structured part of the tour lasts approximately one hour and you can easily spend another hour browsing.
We have the latest in modern technology to engage you following the living history tour. 21st century technology lives beside 15th century living history, the best of both worlds!
