Dalkey Castle and Heritage Centre

The Dalkey Castle and Heritage Centre forms the centrepiece of Dalkey, which is a pretty coastal town a short way from Dublin on the east coast. The castle hosts ‘living history’ tours on a daily basis, wherein professional actors working for the castle play the roles of soldiers and nobles, telling people all about how life was in the castle from the perspective of the military garrison and ruling classes in a sequence of lectures staged at different portions.

Those interested in the religious history of the site can visit the early example of a medieval church, while knowledge of the Middle Ages as experienced by Ireland and the Dublin region may be absorbed in the timeline present in the nearby Heritage Centre building. Crime and punishment is immortalized by the stocks used to humiliate wrongdoers. Those wishing to experience delightful views of Dalkey and the surrounding coastline can ascend the castle’s battlements, which afford a delightful panorama.
