Great, parks, restaurants, coastal walks and near good schools, the dart and bus routes. Situated on the east coast of Dublin, with views of bull island and Howth on the coast road, it's a quiet village very close to the city centre...only 3 miles from town.

This area appears to be one of the wealthier places in the city. I stayed at the castle hotel and walked around some. It's a really nice area and seemed really safe walking around. I enjoyed it.

Truly memorable afternoon tea experience at the Clontarf Castle Hotel. Wonderful welcome on arrival & hospitality staff were brilliant especially Michelle who looked after us throughout the afternoon. Most amazing selection of cakes/ scones, elegantly displayed.

A great place to visit. Spectacular sea views peaceful surroundings and abundance of eating houses. St Anne's park is also worth a visit.

There are several public transit options for getting to and from Clontarf. I really like the shoreline. There is a linear park there that has random exercise equipment along the way. There are some other parks and restaurants around. Accommodations wise, I think the Clontarf Castle is the closest castle hotel to Dublin city centre. Pretty nice!

A really nice place to visit. Peaceful area. Great walks around shore and on Bull Island also inland - St Anne's park is a spectacular and spacious open area of natural almost unspoilt beauty. Quaint and interesting very varied architecture and still much to explore. Mysterious place the greatest mystery being how anyone can afford to live here - the... More

Clontarf is a really beautiful place. It starts under the bridge at Fairview and it is best to walk if you want to really appreciate the place. There are many collections of shops and places to stop if one wants to have something to eat or drink. The walk along the sea walk is really nice with a view of... More

Clontarf is the best, Dublin suburb for many reasons. On the one hand, it is bordered by the sea promenade at Dublin Bay and the other side of Clontarf has one of Dublin's largest park, Saint Anne's Park.. Winter and summer, the promenade makes a lovely walk with plenty of watering holes and restaurants along the way. About three kilometres... More
