Clondalkin Village

Clondalkin Village, is located in west Dublin just off the N7 at junction 1a and is about 6 miles from the City Centre, accessible from the M50 off exit 9.

Clondalkin – Cluain Dolcain – Dolcan’s Meadow is located on the banks of the River Camac.  Situated on the heights over the estuary of the River Liffey historically it guarded the inland pass between the mountains and the river. This advantageous location first attracted Neolithic settlers around 7,600 years ago.

It’s also close by the Grand Canal, which is about a 5 minute walk from the Village and includes a greenway standard pathway for cyclists and pedestrians that stretches into Dublin City. It is also adjacent to the beautiful Corkagh Park, a 290 acre regional park that stretches from the edge of Clondalkin village and adjacent to the Naas Road (N7). It incorporates lands of the former Corkagh Demesne rich heritage of specimen trees, woodlands, natural water features and attractive parklands, which also contains a pet farm, a fairy trail, angling lakes, a cycling track, numerous acres of woodland and wildflower meadows that attract much wildlife.

Visible from all directions, the dominant feature of Clondalkin Village is its Round Tower. The Annals of Ulster record that the relics of St. Kevin and St. Mochua were taken on tour in 790 AD. It is thought that the Clondalkin Round Tower was built around this period. A visitor centre and gardens will open at the tower in June 2017, telling its 1,200 year story.

Enjoy the Clondalkin Village Festival in June every year and all year round you can call in on Aras Chronain cultural centre to taste a traditional Irish experience.

Clondalkin Village is proximate to a number of hotels nearby and Camac Camping and Caravan Park is also at the entrance to Corkagh Park, should you wish for an alternative form of accommodation. Clondalkin Leisure Centre is also in Clondalkin Park, in the heart of the Village and for further outdoor activity why not play a round at Grange Castle Golf Club.

Clondalkin has a branch of South Dublin Libraries in a building which used to house a Carnegie library.

The area is steeped in history, explore more on the history of the Village here. A guided Village Heritage Walk is also downloadable.
