Group Tours

Dalkey Castle warmly welcomes group visits. After a revealing introductory video and with all Covid protocols in place, your group will begin their exploration of this ancient, yet ultra-modern site.

Actors from Deilg Inis Living History Theatre Company bring the history to colourful life. Climb to the battlements for magnificent views of sea and mountains. Browse in the Writers’ Gallery where you be enthralled by the forty-five writers and creative artists from Joyce to Bono and Beckett to Maeve Binchy. Our guides delight in taking you through the scaled models and the interactive touchscreens have historical information in twelve languages. The town has lots of cafés and restaurants catering for all tastes.

Group visits must be booked in advance by email to [email protected]. Group sizes largely depend on Covid Regulations in force at the time of the visit.
