Having recently moved to Glasnevin, I can highly recommend the area for anyone looking for a park filled quiet suburb in the North of Dublin. Whether you are looking for a bright apartment in Addison Park or a detached house on the tree-lined Griffith Avenue the neighbourhood offers a peaceful residential community while still keeping that morning commute right down for any of you working in the City Centre. Plenty of local shops, pubs, restaurants mean you are never far away from good food and services.

Of course we can’t discuss Glasnevin without talking about the stunning National Botanic Gardens – a must visit for all nature lovers. Founded in 1795 the Gardens boast a fantastic collection of plant life from around the world, much of which are housed in the beautifully grand glasshouses. Free to the public, I highly recommend the Gardens as a wonderful place to spend a quiet day in the sun with a good book. Just don’t forget to get yourself a home made ice lolly from McMahon’s just across from The Pyramid Church!

With Santry to the north and Phibsborough to the south, Glasnevin has easy access to all the amenities one could need including Omni Shopping Centre, Mater hospital, DCU and the M50. With Dublin Airport only being a short drive away it is easy to pick up a friend or go for a quick weekend trip abroad yourself.
