Interaction with Guests
I and my 7 year old boy (part time) live here.
I advise on the places to go, things to see and do and what to ignore in Dublin.
get ideas,...plan and arrange things to do, on line, in advance, make time efficient when you are here,
Clontarf is a residential part of Dublin 3, and not a far flung suburb outside Dublin. It is a premier residential address, as it has been for 150 years.
Close to the sea, approx between the city centre and the airport. City Centre 5km, Airport 10km.
very well located next to shops and super easy public transport to city with train and buses every 10 mins
The house is on a quiet road but is walking distance from great restaurants, bars, shops, supermarket and services.
The super market open 07:00-24:00 7 days is 150metres from house so it is great resource to have.
There are plenty of Chinese, Indian, French an Irish food restaurants and take aways so you are very well serviced if you do not feel like cooking yourself.
You can enjoy pubs of Clontarf, like Harry Byrne's for example, so much so,that you might never go to the city centre. The trouble with Harry..... is you will never leave....... a place of character and history and food for the soul.
The viking theatre over a pub called The Sheds, fantastic place for budget drama.
A huge beach of white sand 3km away.
There are many parks like St Anne's park, Fairview Park
The House is located 5km from city Centre;
20mins by bicycle; 15mins by bus; 10mins in car; €12 in a taxi; suburban train (DART) station 200m away to city centre, but also all the way NORTH to Howth and all the way SOUTH to Greystones;
Howth is a beautiful fishing village worth a day visit and a lunch.
Dun Laoghaire is equally beautiful destination and another day visit.
The DART gives you direct access from house.
The location is brilliant and can not be beaten to access all places without a car..
