Dalkey Island Visitor Survey 2023

Closed 22 Sep 2023

Opened 21 Aug 2023


Dalkey Island is significant for its ecology, history, architecture and archaeology as well as for its social, cultural and historic uses. It is also an important part of the coastal landscape being visible from most parts of Dublin Bay and as far south as Wicklow. The island is designated as an EU Natura 2000 site for tern species (Common Tern, Arctic Tern and Roseate Tern) and it is important that we provide terns with space to nest and roost. Terns may be present between May and October.

Wildlife Conservation & Science Ltd are conducting a survey on behalf of Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council. We are consulting users of Dalkey Island to better understand general patterns and levels of use of the island and awareness of its natural heritage importance.

The responses will be used to inform recommendations for the sustainable management of Dalkey Island.
