This photograph dates from April 2007 and unfortunately it is a second or third generation copy as I lost the original RAW version.

There are several small harbours on the coast of Dalkey. Bulloch Harbour is the biggest; it is towards the northern part of Dalkey at Harbour Road and is a declared seal sanctuary. Coliemore Harbour is smaller and in the southern part of Dalkey at Coliemore Road. In the Middle Ages, Coliemore was the main harbour for Dublin City. Bulloch Harbour is still a working harbour with boats that fish for lobster and crab, and mackerel in season. It is also used by locals and tourists who hire boats for nearby fishing, sightseeing and for getting to Dalkey Island.

[Update 9 NOVEMBER 2020] - A few weeks ago Coliemore Harbour in Dalkey was closed to the public after part of the wall underneath the walkway fell into the sea. In an online statement Dun Laoghaire Council said: “Access to Coliemore Harbour in Dalkey is closed to the public due to a section of granite bedrock shearing away.
