Dalkey goes Japanese?
One of the exclusive residences facing Dalkey Island has a beautiful tree in its garden, creating the impression of a Japanese painting.
The tower is a Martello Tower, built to watch for the Napoleonic invasion which never came. These towers stretch all round the coast of Ireland and one - the 'Joyce Tower' just up the coast - was the setting for the early chapters of Ulysses by James Joyce.
Dalkey was one of the ports used instead of Dublin itself for many centuries, since the navigation up the River Liffey was treacherous.
