Bulloch Harbour, Dalkey, County Dublin, Ireland

001Bulloch Harbour is located on the north side of the village of Dalkey, County Dublin, Ireland.   I took this photo on a clear January day in 2000.  Tide was in and not many boats were in the little harbor.  Across from the harbor is Bulloch Castle.  Another castle is located in the main street and is now used as a visitors’ center.  They are very similar in look and style, so I suspect they were built as fortifications at the same time.  The harbors in Dalkey have been in use for centuries and were used extensively for trade as far back as the 12th century.  Dalkey is located about ten miles south along the coast from Dublin City.
