5 islands in Dublin

1) Dalkey Island

Tiny Dalkey Island is a mere 9 hectares and can be reached by boat if you book ahead. It’s rather flat and beside a Martello Tower, there’s not a lot here to explore but on a sunny day it is an incredible spot to picnic and have a drink. It’s only a 5-minute journey from Coliemore Harbour.
