Sandycove is one of South County Dublin’s best loved suburbs. Just southeast of Dun Laoghaire and Glasthule, this popular seaside resort is world famous for The Forty Foot bathing place, featured in the opening episode of James Joyce’s Ulysses and now a must-visit for any Dublin sea swimmer.
The majority of houses and apartments in the area are highly sought after and tend to command strong prices, due to Sandycove’s desirable location and the world class facilities and amenities that surround the area. These include an excellent selection of primary and secondary schools such as Castle Park, Harold Boys National School, Loreto Abbey Dalkey, Rathdown Girls Schools and The Harold.
Residents enjoy Sandycove’s abundance of leisure and recreational facilities, such as coastal walks, seaside cycles direct to Blackrock, the Sandycove Promenade along with Sandycove Tennis Club and Cuala GAA. Dun Laoghaire Harbour with its four yacht clubs and extensive marina is very popular with the marine and sailing enthusiasts and is only a couple of kilometres away.
As Sandycove is positioned in between Dalkey town centre and Glasthule, it has access to two DART stations and a number of bus routes that service Dublin city centre on a regular basis.
There is good access to local and boutique shopping in Dalkey and Glasthule, with more extensive shopping available in Dun Laoghaire town centre, where there is also a wide selection of cafés, hostelries and excellent restaurants.
