The pretty village of Dalkey, Co Dublin, hits the headlines now and again because it’s one of those places celebrities choose to live or stay in Ireland. No one blinks an eye when Pierce Brosnan pops up on a bar stool for lunch, or Matt Damon walks around with his togs in a SuperValu bag, or even when Bono takes Michelle Obama to lunch at Finnegan’s.

Neither is it a village of madly expensive boutiques or restaurants, and perhaps that’s what appeals to them: the normality of the place, where they can eat and drink like locals in great restaurants like the Guinea Pig or Jaipur, the Thai House, Ragazzi, De Ville’s, The Corner Note and more.
