Get to know the Neighbourhood
The quickly growing business and residential hub of Sandyford is a favourite among young couples and professionals looking for accommodation with an urban feel outside of Dublin city centre. The many restaurants, cafes and amenities have made it a favoured place to live, along with the area’s convenient Luas line into the city.
Residents have their pick when it comes to amenities. Sandyford is home to the well-known Beacon South Quarter, with its excellent choice of shopping, dining and entertainment. The centre offers a gym, beauty salons, Dunnes Stores and restaurants such as favourites Michie Sushi and Elephant & Castle. Despite its urban feel and the daily influx of commuters to Sandyford Business District, the area is also ideal for family activities: Imaginosity, Dublin’s children’s museum, opened in Sandyford in 2015 and Jump Zone is the perfect afternoon spot for busy little ones.
As far as green space goes, Sandyford is within easy reach of Marlay Park and the nearby Dublin Mountains. The area is particularly well serviced by a variety of public transport options, including bus routes, the Luas green line and Aircoach service for adventures further afield. Dundrum, with its popular shops, restaurants, cinema and theatre, are just a short Luas ride away. For those looking to raise a family in Sandyford, a number of primary and secondary schools are located nearby.
