About our home

Our preference is for longer swaps of a fortnight or even a month - in or near to a city/ town.
We would be delighted to consider city-only swaps/stays of 4 nights or longer as well.
As this is our primary residence short stays for points are not on the cards.
We are not keen on properties that are out of town or on their own.
We do wish like for like with the quality of the property with any swap.
Regrettably, we cannot accommodate children under 10 as our house is not child friendly.

Wonderful upscale Dalkey village, six minutes walk from the house, is one of the very best, if not the best, neighbourhoods in Dublin. It is one of the very few authentic suburban villages left in Dublin and is now a protected heritage town with its castles, beautiful buildings, harbours, coastal and hillside walkways.

Three bedrooms-- a super king, a king-size and a double bed. Two bedrooms with en-suite showers and 1 with a full bathroom cum shower. All in Italian marble.
WiFi throughout with a fast 100Mb download

Outside is a sun trap, south-facing, secluded courtyard garden with an upper deck directly outside the kitchen with a six chair Rattan suite plus a large gas-fired Barbecue.

You literally have everything you may need in Dalkey.
Supermarket, shops, super pubs, cafes, coffee shops, great restaurants, bakeries, pharmacies, a health food shop, pizza take-outs, etc, etc.
Killiney hill, right behind Chacalna, has fabulous walks and views over Dublin, Dublin bay, Killiney bay and Bray Head.
Walks along the coast to Colimore and Bullouch harbours and Vico road are a must.
And of course, you have the DART (Light Train) to many, many more within a matter of minutes.
DunLaoghaire, 4 stops away, is a large town with a multitude of businesses including a shopping centre and a public hospital (free to tourists)

Where is it?


Dalkey has it all.
You are truly spoiled for choice in Dalkey for fine and casual dining, excellent authentic pubs inc. some with music, wonderful walks in the hills, with stunning views, or stroll by the sea.

Supermarket, Organic health shop, bread shops, fresh fish shop, local fine butchers, veg and fruit has them all.
The small quaint granite harbours of Coliemore and Bullock are a stroll away as is Killiney hill. You can rent a small boat for very good fishing in the bay.

Transport is right on your doorstep. The DART (Dublin Area Rapid Transport) station, only seven minutes walk, takes you to Dublin city centre (northbound), fabulous Howth harbour with its seafood restaurants and famous bars.
The large harbour town of Dunlaoghaire with the marvellous long piers, shops, cafes, restaurants, farmers market, etc is only four stops away. The other DART direction (southbound) brings you to the lovely coastal towns of Bray and Greystones. The coastal walk from Bray to Greystones is a must as is the hill of Howth!
The DART line also serves the main railway stations and stops two minutes from the main bus terminus, so really all of Ireland is a mere seven-minute walk away. The Aircoach stops at the nearby Fitzpatricks Castle hotel directly from the airport.
The motorway network is a few minutes away by car

Buzzy restaurants
Restaurants include a superb sea food, French style bistro, Irish/French restraunts, two Italian, steak pub, four gastro pubs, wine bar, Thai, Asian, Chinese and a choice of excellent cafes inc a natural organic food cafe/shop.
Cool bars
Yes.....Choose from six in the village. From one of Irelands most famous pubs, Finnegans, to a lively Queens. Perhaps The Club with it's beautiful interior and a snug, a more local pub The Kings Head? Or The Dalkey Duck for live music at weekends. There are 2 terrific wine bars.....The Grapevine and 1909
Cozy cafés won't know which one to go to! Country care, Mugs, Idle Wild, Select Store, Corner note....all excellent and so friendly.
Retail therapy
Dunlaoghaire is a mere four stops away on the frequent DART train or by the local bus.
Bit of culture
Fortress castles, literary history (Ulysses by James Joyce) granite harbours used by smugglers, Dalkey quarry, The Metals, and throw in a heritage town!
Walks in the park
Killiney hill has some of the best hill walking in Dublin. Walk over the hill to Sorennto Road for terrific views of Killiney bay and to Bray head. Take a walk up Bray head (via the DART) and do not miss the stunning 5 mile coast walk from Bray to Greystones harbour. (you can take the DART back to Dalkey)
Spot of exercise
Walk, safely cycle in lovely surroundings. Walk both piers of Dunlaoghaire harbour, if you are fit ... or want to be! Stroll along the seafront from DunLaoghaire to Sandycove and beyond.
Day tripping
The spectacular, natural, uninhabited, wild Wicklow National Park is reachable by St Kevins Bus to beautiful Glendalough (Glen of two lakes) to see the 11th-century monastery or about 20-25 minutes away by car. This is a must do. Fit?! You can actually walk the stunning Wicklow Way from Dublin to Glendalough in two days. You could have Dublin as your base to explore Ireland, North and South, and then is so easy to have all of Europe at your doorstep. If you wish to explore Europe with Dublin as your base. For incredibly cheap airfares to all of Europe and beyond...Ryanair or Aer Lingus. The earlier you book the cheaper the fare. For instance; you could easily fly Dublin to London, take the train to Paris, fly to Rome, the train to Florence/Pisa and then back to Dublin for very little. The bus to/from the airport is only seven minutes walk away. Yes. Dalkey is as good as it gets!Howth harbour, Greystones and the Dublin and Wicklow mountains and Wicklow National Park, GlendaLough, stunning Newgrange (older than Stonehenge), Enniskerry village, Powerscourt Demense, Marley Park, etc, etc!
