Get to know the Neighbourhood
The leafy green streets of Mount Merrion are some of the most enviable in Dublin. This renowned neighbourhood has long been regarded as a highly sought-after location, characterised by large gardens,1930s Kenny-built houses with incredible character, and its convenient location, just 6 kilometres south of St Stephen’s Green.
Mount Merrion is home to Deerpark, a sprawling Greenland of 32 acres with playing fields, woodland walks and views overlooking Dublin city centre. The park also offers a tennis and football club. The area is favoured by young families looking for room to grow, and who want to take advantage of the wide selection of some of South County Dublin’s finest schools. An excellent choice of amenities are nearby on The Rise, including local favourite restaurant Michael’s Mount Merrion. As far as a commute goes, Mount Merrion is located conveniently on the Quality Bus Corridor, with regular service into Dublin city centre.
Although the postcode dates back 300 years to the Fitzgerald Estate, modern development in the area only began in 1926 with the building of a strip of modern bungalows on Mount Anville Road (which cost just £750 a pop by 1928!). The unique, large homes synonymous with the area were built around the 1930s, and have housed several Dubliners of note, including Dermot Morgan of Father Ted fame.
