Coliemore Harbour (Cuan na Coille Móire) was the most important trading spot for goods on the east coast of Ireland in the middle ages. The naturally deep waters of Dalkey Sound meant that the largest sailing ships of that time could dock in the sound. Passengers and cargo were rowed into the harbour on long boats. During this phase, seven tower houses were built in Dalkey, in which the incoming goods were stored until further transport into Dublin.
I love cycling down past Coliemore Harbour most mornings and looking out across to Dalkey Island. The sunrises, cloud formations and ever-changing skies make for some great painting inspirations.
