- Dalkey is one of the more charming (and wealthy) parts of Dublin. In the summer, you can hire a boat to Dalkey Island where you'll find a bird sanctuary, a Martello tower and the ruins of the early Irish St. Begnet's Church. Dublin is curious in that it can provide these wildernesses so close to the city. You're unlikely to be trampled by hordes of tourists on this little-visited island.
