Looking Back: Dublin Day 6 (Part 2) in Pictures: Dalkey

After leaving the James Joyce Tower and Museum on Saturday, August 20, 2016, we walked to Dalkey. The water was so beautiful and blue. Dalkey began as a Viking settlement and was an important port. These days, it is a very cute little village. It also was part of Ulysses’s plot. If you click on one of the pictures below, it will turn into a gallery which you might find easier to view.

The rainbow was definitely a sign. If you would like to learn more about the places from today, please visit these links:
