Language Schools

The highly visual and entertaining Language School Tours with costumed Living History actors run all year. They are devised to suit students learning English. Active participation is encouraged. They can try their strength on the longbow. They will mint their own coinage. On the battlements, they can hail the King and show the native Irish their bow fingers. In the Heritage Centre, the historical information is presented on interactive screens in twelve languages.

Coach parking is available nearby.

The Spiral Staircase

The spiral stairs were built to ascend in a clockwise direction. It is thought that this design was to give right-handed defenders an advantage in the wielding of their swords. They were built with uneven steps. In the dark, unfamiliar spaces these became a trip hazard and were referred to as Trip Steps. See the Trip Steps at Dalkey Castle, where history comes to life.
