Staying in Ireland with Killiney Vacation Rentals
The village of Killiney, in County Dublin, Ireland is a rural suburb of Dublin that is home to many famous Irish. Though the village is just outside of the city, it's quiet, rural and dominated by nature. The place was original centered around the church from which it drew its name, 'Cill Inion Leinin,' which in English is Killiney. The ruins of the church are still in the town's center. Killiney has a long beach, some rocky coastline, and visually, the area is compared to the Bay of Naples in Italy.
