Video of Dalkey, County Dublin, Republic of Ireland

Dalkey is the original home town of three well-known Irish writers, novelists Maeve Binchy and Roddy Doyle, and playwright Hugh Leonard. It is also the setting for Flann O'Brien's novel The Dalkey Archive. In recent years several well-known Irish and international figures bought property in the area such as U2 members Bono and The Edge; Enya, the music artist; and musicians Chris de Burgh and Van Morrison. Former host of the Late Late Show, Pat Kenny, and TV3 current affairs host Vincent Browne are residents. Film directors Neil Jordan and Jim Sheridan also live in the town, while Formula One drivers Damon Hill, Eddie Irvine, used to live in Dalkey. Gavin O'Reilly, CEO of the Independent News & Media of Ireland and his (separated) wife, actress and model Allison Doody, lived at Bartra House, a 10,000-square-foot (930 m²) home overlooking the sea.

Dalkey Island is home to a colony of seals which has greatly expanded in recent years. A herd of wild goats live on the island also. Birdwatch Ireland have established a colony of Roseate Terns on Maiden Rock just north of Dalkey Island. More recently a pod of three bottlenose dolphins has begun frequenting the waters around Dalkey Island.

The current Dalkey railway station was opened on 10 July 1854. The station is served by the DART, which passes through a tunnel south of Dalkey, emerging on a cliff giving spectacular views over Killiney Bay.

Cuala CLG, a prominent Gaelic Athletic Association sports club, and Dalkey United, an association football club, are both based at Hyde Park. Early in his soccer career, Paul McGrath played for Dalkey United. In the 1940s, the town produced another footballer of note, Peter Farrell. Recently it has set up an athletics club, the Dalkey Dashers

Dalkey (Irish: Deilginis, meaning "thorn island") is suburb of Dublin and seaside resort in County Dublin, Ireland. It was founded as a Viking settlement and became an important port during the Middle Ages. According to John Clyn, it was one of the ports through which the plague entered Ireland in the mid-14th century. In modern times, Dalkey has become a thriving seaside suburb and a minor tourist attraction. The town is named after Dalkey Island, just offshore. The name is a meld of the Irish deilg (meaning "thorn") and the Old Norse ey (meaning "island").
