Vico Road

"Vico Road, Dalkey" runs southwest from the town of Dalkey along the coast, approximately 10 miles southeast of central Dublin. Dalkey was a good address in the prosperous southern suburbs. As Finerty's caption indicates, it was a site for sea bathing, grand scenic views, promenades, and band concerts.
