Get to know the Neighbourhood
Clonskeagh or ‘Cluain Sceach’, meaning meadow of the whitethorn, is a small, modern suburb straddling the River Dodder. Located just south of Ranelagh, this neighbourhood has plenty to offer the discerning buyer: top-rated schools, easy access to prime commuter routes, expansive recreational facilities and stunning, historic homes.
Clonskeagh was developed in the early decades of the 20th century. Although the neighbourhood is primarily residential, there is an excellent selection of shops on Bird Avenue. Renowned dining and drinking experiences are aplenty in this small village, including Ashton’s and O’Shea’s Clonskeagh House. Just a short distance away, residents can also take advantage of all that Ranelagh and Dundrum have to offer.
A variety of schools in the area cater to all levels of student, from primary schooling to secondary education, on to the UCD Belfield campus nearby. Culturally, the Catholic Church of the Miraculous Medal is on Bird Avenue, and the Islamic Cultural Centre of Ireland and its associated primary school is situated on Roebuck Road. Recreational activities are numerous in Clonskeagh. The neighbourhood boasts pleasant walks along the River Dodder, as well as open green spaces at UCD Belfield. State-of-the-art fitness facilities are available at both David Lloyd’s Health and Fitness Club and the UCD Belfield Campus gym, with its crowning jewel: a 50m swimming pool.
Reach Clonskeagh easily via a number of transport options. Dublin Bus regularly services the area and the LUAS green line provides easy access at both Windy Arbour and Milltown.
