Get to know the Neighbourhood
We won’t go so far as to call Kilternan Dublin’s ‘Little Zermatt’, but this suburban neighbourhood offers a lifestyle as close to the Alpine as one can get in Dublin. Not only is Kilternan nestled at the base of the Dublin Mountains, but it is also home to Ireland’s only ski slope, making the neighbourhood a popular spot for those looking to settle down with easy access to the great outdoors.
Kilternan has no traditional village centre, although it is well catered for in terms of amenities in nearby Carrickmines, where residents can take advantage of all of the shopping Carrickmines Park has to offer. For dining, the popular eatery Farmer Brown’s opened a branch in Kilternan and favourites such as The Step Inn or Quattro Woodfire Pizza are available in neighbouring Stepaside.
The area is conveniently served with numerous all-day bus routes, including the 44 for drop-off at Kilternan’s Ski Club of Ireland. Other sporting facilities in the area include Wayside Celtic soccer and two rugby clubs. The Dublin Mountains, with forest trails and views over Dublin, are located just adjacent to Kilternan.
A selection of both primary and secondary schools make Kilternan a favourite amongst families looking to settle down. In the immediate area, Our Lady of the Wayside and Kilternan Church of Ireland Primary School both offer primary education, with Stepaside Educate Together and John Scottus nearby for secondary schooling.
