Glasthule is a beautiful scenic coastal village, enjoying views of Dublin Bay and access to all of the amenities that neighbouring Dun Laoghaire and Dalkey have to offer. With the James Joyce Tower and Museum located in nearby Sandycove, the area is famous for its Bloomsday celebration, held each year on June 16 in James Joyce’s honour.
Glasthule has an abundance of busy shops and restaurants all located in a small village just a stone’s throw away from the seafront. Flowers and hanging baskets line the main street of this picturesque village and locals can enjoy restaurants such as the well-loved Cookbook Café and Cavistons Seafood Restaurant. Glasthule’s main road links Sandycove with Dun Laoghaire, allowing ease of access for residents to the sea swimming, dining and shopping that both villages have to offer.
Families settling in the area will be delighted with the choice of primary and secondary schools in the immediate vicinity, including The Harold School and St Joseph’s National School. Glasthule is extremely well served by public transport, positioned on the DART line (just a 25-minute commute from the city centre). There are excellent bus routes in the area, along with the Aircoach servicing Dublin Airport.
