Rathgar Village remains one of Dublin’s distinctive old villages; to this day hosting a beautiful array of quaint shops and restaurants, offering the ultimate timeless feeling of village life.
A real oasis of tranquility, it’s hard to believe that the idyllic village of Rathgar is situated only three kilometres from the hustle and bustle of Grafton Street in Dublin’s City Centre.
Rathgar has long been a highly sought after and exclusive suburb of Dublin, thanks to its beautiful red-bricked late Victorian and Edwardian houses and tree-lined roads. Much of Rathgar lies in an architectural conservation area, so the integrity of the area is retained at all times. Rathgar has a unique village-in-the-city atmosphere, with small independent stores, boutiques, cafés and artisans adding to its local appeal.
For younger residents, there are several schools and colleges within easy reach including Sandford National School, Sandford Park, The High School, Alexandra College, Gonzaga College, Terenure College, St Mary’s College, Scoil Bhráde and University College Dublin. There’s also plenty to do outside of school and work hours, with several sports and leisure facilities in the immediate area, including Milltown Golf Club, David Lloyd Riverview, Brookfield Tennis Club and LA Fitness.
The Dodder Valley Linear Park and Bushy Park are only a stone’s throw away. Nestled in the heart of Rathgar, Marianella will offer all the benefits of city life with the tranquillity of green spaces.
