The Killiney Obelisk is one of the most prominent and best loved structures in Co. Dublin.

You can visit it as part of Open House Dublin 2016 on Sunday 16 October between 12 and 5pm.

Built in 1742 on the crown of Killiney Hill by John Mapas, and completely restored in 2008 by Howley Hayes for Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council, the Obelisk provides a dominant landmark from land and sea. It also marks one of the most stunning panoramic views in Ireland, with Killiney Bay and the Wicklow Mountains to the south, Dalkey Hill and Island to the north, the Irish Sea to the east, and Dublin to the west.
