Discover the Secrets of The Dalkey Tudors
Live Theatre Performance as part of Guided Tour
Mon-Fri 10.00-18.00; Sat and Sun 11.00-18.00 (Closed on Tuesdays)
 
Deilg Inis actors are living back in 1543, and King Henry the Eight is on the throne of England.
 
Meanwhile, in the Living Quarters of Dalkey Castle, on its battlements, and in its ancient church and graveyard, Henry’s admirers harbour dark secrets.
 
A Merchant visits Begnet’s Church each day in search of the spirit of a lost love. Is this madness, the terrible result of forbidden love? Or are we truly in a haunted place? You must decide.
 
A Barber-Surgeon pulls your teeth, tests your urine (entirely optional), and shows you a horde of Viking silver. A tall tale, you think? The answer lies in the British Museum, of all places. You may be very, very surprised.
 
An Archer, and defender of the Castle’s battlements has a vertiginous twist to his tale.
 
And how do these odd Irish Tudors prepare for a feast, perform their ablutions, use weaponry, cure illness and disease? Mystery is piled on mystery. All is based on the real history of Dalkey, in the amazing world of sixteenth century Ireland.
 
Come and be a Dalkey Tudor even for half a day!
