“Raheny is a family-friendly north side suburb with a lot of going for it. It’s one of just a few places where you can buy a house near the sea in Dublin.”
Raheny is an extensive coastal suburb of the city of Dublin in Ireland, centred around an old village, four to five miles from the city centre on a north-easterly main road, which travels on for some miles to the Hill of Howth, ending at the village of Howth, one of Ireland’s main fishing ports.
Raheny has a large library and a Garda station, a Parish Hall in the Church of Ireland grounds, the CARA community hall in St. Anne’s and the Grange Woodbine Club/ Community Centre.
The district also has a full GAA clubhouse, a soccer clubhouse for Raheny United, facilities for major athletics club Raheny Shamrocks, St. Anne’s golf club and courses for par 3 golf and pitch & putt.
Raheny has a good number of shopping and service facilities, with a wide range of retailers, financial institutions, service stations and a main dealership, trade workers and professionals. It is served by several bus routes and the city’s coastal electric railway, the core of the DART system, and has a central taxi rank.
It still retains a real village feeling – there is a centre to the village. Raheny is a great warm, friendly, welcoming community spirited village that has everything – beside the sea, with Bull Island beach and St Anne’s park.Barry Murphy – Raheny Business Association
Key features include Dublin’s second-largest park, St. Anne’s Park (parts of which lie in Clontarf), assembled by the Guinness family of brewing fame, and the internationally recognised (North) Bull Island, whose fine 4.5 km beach is also known as Dollymount Strand.Love Raheny
