Dulas (About this soundWelsh pronunciation) or City Dulas[1] is a village in Anglesey, in north-west Wales.[citation needed] It is situated on the A5025 road, near the coast (Dulas Bay) at only 5 metres (16 ft) above sea level.

Origin of the name[edit]

The village has never held the status of a city and "City" is not a recognisable Welsh word, so its origin is unclear. It may be that the name came from an Anglicisation of Saith Tŷ, which is Welsh for "Seven Houses".

There are two places in Wales simply called 'City': City, Powys and City, Vale of Glamorgan.
