Interaction with guests
Happy to help with advice for your stay in Clontarf and Dublin.
Clontarf is an upmarket coastal suburb on the northside of Dublin. It is most famous for the Battle of Clontarf in 1014, in which Brian Boru, High King of Ireland, defeated the Vikings of Dublin and their allies, the Irish of Leinster. Clontarf is close to Dublin city centre and it's a 10 minute walk to the coast (Clontarf Promenade) from our house. There are shops 5 minutes walk away with Supervalu supermarket; pharmacies; off-licence and more. The following are also nearby: Clontarf Castle (hotel, bar, restaurant); Harry Byrne's (pub), The Yacht (pub & food); Casa Pasta (Italian restaurant); Avenue 53 Café/Bistro; The Beachcomber (pub serving food); The Nuthouse (café/restaurant) and Doran's (restaurant). St Anne's Park is nearby. Our house is also beside Clontarf Cricket grounds and Clontarf Rugby Club.
Walkers can reach the city centre on foot in approx 45 minutes.
For drivers, there is free on-street parking. There are filling stations (gas stations) nearby on the Howth Road.
Nearest bus stop is #610 for city (Howth Road, Ashbrook)/#527 from city (Howth Road, St Lawrence Road) with regular services to city centre and Howth. In light traffic, it takes about 10 minutes to reach city centre by bus - the bus fare to city centre is €2.75 (or €2.05 using LEAP travel card). Please ask me about LEAP cards. We recommend downloading the Dublin Bus app - enter our nearest bus stop number (610) and you can see when the next bus is due!
Killester DART (train) station is within 10 minutes walk and offers regular services to city centre (€2.15 or €1.70 with LEAP card) and entire length of Dublin coastline including Malahide, Howth, Dalkey, Killiney, Dun Laoighre and Bray. The DART also provides rapid access to Aviva Stadium (Lansdowne Road).
Taxis are plentiful and can be flagged down on the Howth Road. Otherwise, we recommend downloading the Hailo taxi app - this is the easiest way to get a taxi right from the door!
