Out & About

 

 

The Locality

 

 

Monkstown village, a short stroll away, is where you will find a variety of boutique shops, gastro-pubs, excellent restaurants and indeed churches. Both Blackrock and Dun Laoghaire are less than 2km away and have multiple outlets.

Directly opposite the house, is a footbridge across the railway to the popular Seapoint beach and promenade, should you fancy an early morning dip. High tide is best.

Salthill Station for DART trains is a stone’s throw from the house. Trains run along the coast between Greystones (about 30k to the South) and Howth (on the opposite side of the Bay) at approximately 15 minute intervals, making it very convenient to get into the heart of the city in about 20 minutes. It carries roughly 20 million passengers a year.

YH5BAEAAAAALAAAAAABAAEAAAIBRAA7

Dun Laoghaire
Originally Dunleary, the town was renamed Kingstown in honour of King George IV’s 1821 visit, and 100 years later reverted the original Irish form Dun Laoghaire.

Ireland’s very first railway (costing £200,000) and covering the five and a half miles from Dublin to Kingstown was opened in 1834.

In the 19th century sailing Dublin Bay was a treacherous prospect, with access to Dublin Port tide dependant. A veritable graveyard of over 600 ships caught in storms, lie at the bottom of the bay. The remedy settled on in the early 19th century led to the construction of the two granite piers, clearly visible from the house.

Completed in in 1859, and now essentially a playground for water sports, it had taken 42 years to construct the harbour.

YH5BAEAAAAALAAAAAABAAEAAAIBRAA7

There are five Yachting clubs based in Dun Laoghaire Harbour. The 820-berth marina, a more recent development, is the largest in the country.

You can join a paved walkway below the house which follows the railway connecting Dun Laoghaire and Killiney to the south. A 3.5K section of this utilises “The Metals”, originally a truck railroad, with cast iron rails, designed to bring horse-drawn trucks laden with granite from the quarry in Dalkey for the construction of the Harbour at Dún Laoghaire. Up to 250 horses and 250 drivers were employed to transport the 8 tonne loads.

YH5BAEAAAAALAAAAAABAAEAAAIBRAA7

The Purty Kitchen gastro-pub, a short stroll along the seafront, is Dun Laoghaire’s oldest surviving premises. Originally a coaching inn and at the centre of the initial settlement, it was constructed largely of clay and straw with a thatched roof and called Old Dunleary Inn. Captain Bligh (earlier of HMS Bounty fame) apparently stayed here in 1800, was not a fan of the harbour “It has nothing to recommend it, being ill adapted for its purpose”

YH5BAEAAAAALAAAAAABAAEAAAIBRAA7

The Martello Tower at the end of the beach below the house, is one of some 50 built by the British in Ireland during the early 1800’s, mostly on the East coast, as an early warning against an expected invasion by Napoleon. The one at Sandycove at the far side of Dun Laoghaire was the starting point of the James Joyce novel Ulysses, and now serves as a museum to the writer.

How to get there – A car may be useful, but certainly not essential.

Trains: Salthill DART station is about 2oo metres from the house, with trains running approximately every 15 minutes. Please click here to download a rail map.

By Air: Flights to Dublin, Belfast or Shannon airports.
Dublin Airport – about 35 mins from the house
Note that there is an Aircoach to and from Dublin Airport that passes very close to the house.
Belfast Airport – approx 2 and half hours from house.
Shannon Airport – approx 2 and half hours from house.

By Sea: Ferry crossings
Dublin City Port / Holyhead has a fast crossing and is just over half an hour from the house
Rosslare Harbour for Ferries to South Wales is also approx 2 and half hours from the house.
