Dalkey Tide Clock
Dalkey- Deilginis, meaning “thorn island”is a suburb of Dublin, and a seaside resort southeast of the city.It lies by the coast, between Dún Laoghaire (and Sandycove and Glasthule) and Killiney. Off the coast are Dalkey Island (up to the 18th century, also “St. Begnet’s Island”), Malden Rock, Clare Rock, Lamb Island, and, further offshore, The Muglins, which have their own lighthouse.
It was founded as a Viking settlement and became an active port during the Middle Ages. According to chronicler John Clyn (c.1286–c.1349), it was one of the ports through which the plague entered Ireland in the mid-14th century. Along the coast are the natural harbour at Bullock, a couple of small inlets, Sorrento Point just east of the town proper, and the northern park of Killiney Bay.
This elegant framed Admiralty nautical chart shows the Dalkey and Killiney area, just south of Dunleary harbour and down to Dalkey Island.
