MOUNT SALUS, DALKEY, CO. DUBLIN
Mount Salus is a handsome building where Newman and other members of the Birmingham Oratory stayed in September and October 1854. Newman was delighted with it. He wrote “Tastes so differ, that I do not like to talk, but I think this is one of the most beautiful places I ever saw”. He availed of it also to offer some respite to Father Faber and the Oratorian community in London, where there was a cholera epidemic. Newman was pleased with the felicitous name of Mount Salus.
