Dublin 8 is to the west of Dublin city and includes the areas of Dolphin’s Barn, Inchicore, Islandbridge, Kilmainham, Merchants Quay, Portobello, South Circular Road and the Coombe.
It is becoming the top choice for the capital’s renters due to its old school character, hipster uprising and transport links. Access to the City and Docklands is quick and easy via Luas Red Line, Dublin Bus and Dublin Bikes. Residents here also have Heuston Station on their doorstep where you can catch a train to the west to Galway and to the south to Cork.
The sales market in Dublin 8 is very healthy, with purchasers drawn to the area’s green open spaces around Memorial Park and along the banks of the Grand Canal. Phoenix Park is located in Dublin 8 which is the largest urban park in Europe. The area offers a wonderful range of period properties alongside 1940’s – current day designs. The former Griffith Barracks aka Griffith College Dublin is actually on the same road as our office, where you’ll find the historic conservation buildings built circa 1892.
We are located at 207 South Circular Road and it is in this area we specialize.
