What you'll do

We kayak along the coastline from Killiney beach towards the Sorrento Terrace. From there we cross Dalkey Sound, a strip of water between Dalkey and the Island. We usually see plenty of cormerants, sea gulls and other sea birds on the island, but probably the most famous wild life we will see is a herd of wild goats that have lived on the island for over 100 years. These along with plenty of rabbits and hopefully some seals offer opportunities for some unusual photos. Dalkey Island has an incredibly chequered history for a place that is so small. The church on the island is dedicated to Saint Begnet, it dates back to the eleventh century. The fireplace in it is from the time of the fort on the island and Martello tower. The original windows in the church are arranged in a very strange way and it’s thought that it relates to the keeping of a solar calendar. Behind the church is a curious stone, marked with a cross. It’s thought that this stone may have been a very ancient pagan stone that has been ‘Christianized’. It has evidence of having a carved circle on it but sadly it is now weathered so much that it is difficult to make out the shapes on it.
