Dalkey Castle is located in one of the most beautiful places in Ireland, a place laden with stunning scenic views. Dalkey itself is a beautiful, vibrant, heritage town full of boutique shops, cafes, bars and restaurants.
Matt Damon said of it: “This is one of the most beautiful places we’ve ever been….It’s absolutely gorgeous…Even in the 2km lockdown, we’ve got trees and forest and woods and ocean. I can’t think of any place you’d rather be in a 2km radius of…It’s a little like a fairytale”.
