As the home of the nation’s capital city, County Dublin offers a center of fun, frolics and city excitement for all who grace its cobbled streets.

For those who venture off the beaten track, however, Co. Dublin can offer countryside and coastal views to rival any of those along the Wild Atlantic Way.

SkyCam Ireland captured this outstanding footage of Dalkey Island and Killiney Island along the Dublin coastline. You’ll be overcome with envy for those lucky enough to live in the stunning houses bordered on one side by glorious green countryside and overlooking the inviting waves of the Irish sea.

Flying over the old ruins as boats glide across the water will make you rethink ever leaving Ireland’s capital county.
