Get to know the Neighbourhood
Located less than 2.5 kilometres east of St Stephen’s Green, past Grand Canal and over the bridge on the River Dodder, is the village of Ringsend in Dublin 4. The nearby southside docks and the iconic chimneys and lighthouse at Poolbeg are a reminder of the area’s industrial past.
A stone’s throw from Boland’s Mill, a scene of considerable action during the Easter Rising of 1916 and the legendary Windmill Lane recording studios, Ringsend is within a short walk to both the 3Arena and Aviva Stadium, making local pubs like the Oarsman and the Yacht perfect spots for a post-gig or pre-match pint.
While Ringsend is well-serviced for shops and pubs. Those looking for an array of restaurants are best served at the nearby Grand Canal Dock and beyond, although the Bridge Café and Basil on the Ringsend Road offer good quality and affordable food.
St Matthew’s National School is nearby, as are St Patrick’s Boys’ and Girls’ National Schools. Secondary education is also available locally at Ringsend College. The Dart is a short distance away at Grand Canal and the area is serviced by Dublin Bus, with the 1 and 47 routes passing through the village.
Ringsend has a surprising amount of open space, considering its proximity to the city centre and its industrial heritage. Ringsend Park plays home to football pitches, tennis and basketball courts, a children’s playground and pathways.
Dublin’s tech hub at Grand Canal Dock is within short walking distance, as is the delightful Sandymount Strand, highlighting that this residential neighbourhood is perfectly positioned to take advantage of modern city living.
