Get to know the Neighbourhood
Overlooking the banks of the River Dodder, Churchtown is a quiet, peaceful suburb in south Dublin. This family-friendly neighbourhood is an excellent location to put down roots, within close proximity to a wide array of parks, shopping centres and schools.
Churchtown’s wide residential streets span from a small village centre on Braemor Road, with an abundance of shops including a SuperValu, Meagher’s Pharmacy and more. The area has undergone recent development to include the refurbishment of local Churchtown Stores into a popular, friendly pub and the opening of Churchtown’s own Elephant & Castle. Churchtown residents have the added benefit of shopping centres at Nutgrove and all of the dining, shopping and entertainment that nearby Dundrum has to offer.
The River Dodder is ideal for long, leafy walks along the water, where locals can spot red foxes and herons in their natural habitat. Churchtown is situated between Bushy and Marlay parks, with their open green spaces, weekend farmer’s markets and sports pitches. Located close to the M50, Churchtown residents also enjoy easy trips to the Wicklow hills for nature walking.
A variety of schools are available in this family-orientated location, including Good Shepherd NS, Ballinteer Educate Together and De La Salle College. St Stephen’s Green is just 6 kilometres away, and easily accessed via Dublin Bus or the Luas at Windy Arbour or Dundrum.
