Local Amenities

The Centre is within walking distance (500 metres) of a large variety of amenities; shops, post office, doctors, chemist, restaurantes - at Harte’s Corner, which serves as a focus of the central village. All intervening kerbs have been dished for easy walking and wheelchair access.

De Courcy Square, nearby, Dublin’s first declared residential Area of Architectural Conservation, contains a community allotment, and Prospect Square, beside it, houses a village green in front of The Gravediggers, one of the most famous pubs in Dublin.

Glasnevin Cemetery is just across the road, with its new museum and Interpretative Centre, as well as a Church where public Mass is said on Sundays and Feast Days. It is an attractive centre, and now a top national tourist attraction, and contains a modern restaurant and coffee shop, as well as research facilities.

A pedestrian, wheelchair-friendly, gate now links the Cemetery to the National Boatanical Gardens, making the Gardens accessible to our residents via a ten minute walk.

Many famous individuals who resonate through Irish history are buried in the cemetery, e.g. Charles Stewart Parnell, Michael Collins and Eamon de Valera, Clarence Mangan and Zozimus. The parents of James Joyce also rest there. The focal point of the cemetery is the O’Connell Monument, which contains a reliquary of Daniel O’Connell.

Dublin City Centre, with all of its amenities, lies within two miles of Clareville. Another favourite destination for residents of Clarevill Court (via 3 stops on the 140 Bus Route) is Phibsboruogh Village, recently voted in an international survey as one of the top ten Residential Areas in the world.
