There’s lots to love about Dublin, Ireland’s welcoming capital. It is a vibrant UNESCO City of Literature, founded by Vikings, and bursting with history, culture, top attractions, excellent shopping, great activities and entertainment and an eclectic mix of pubs, cafés and restaurants.
It’s got a wonderful coastline too, where you can enjoy great water activities, stroll along piers and promenades, watch the yachts bobbing in Dublin Bay, savour fresh fish in a seaside restaurant or a French pastry in a local café, experience boutique shopping, visit a local market, or explore historic castle, towers and museums.
Where’s the best location to take it all in? Fitzpatrick Castle Holiday Homes! We are situated in Killiney, a special part of Dublin, and right next door to Fitzpatrick Castle Hotel (and you have access to all their leisure facilities and services). Our Holiday Homes overlook the entire spread of Dublin Bay on one side and the 300 acre Killiney Hill Park on the other.
Killiney is the also perfect base to explore Dublin and magnificent attractions in both Dublin and Wicklow. Killiney is just a 15 minute walk (5 minute drive) from Dalkey Village and Heritage Centre. A DART station is also located in Dalkey. In Dublin, the electric rail system called the DART (Dublin Area Rapid Transit) is a quick and easy way to get around Dublin. It runs along the coast of the Irish Sea from Malahide or Howth in north County Dublin southwards as far as Greystones, Co Wicklow. It provides easy access to Dublin City and its coastline and allows you to discover the sights and attractions Dublin has to offer including sandy beaches, parks, theatres, harbour villages, museums, city shopping and much more. The DART operates every every 15 minutes, all day, and its fares are great value.
