Donnybrook Public Directory

1847 marker

There is a metre-high cement marker on the sidewalk on the west side of Morehampton Road, just before it turns into Leeson Street, which reads "Township of Rathmines 1847" (pictured left). This marks what is roughly the northern boundary of Donnybrook. Morehampton Road turns into Donnybrook Road (The Mall / Main Street) at Belmont Avenue; Donnybrook Road in turn becomes Stillorgan Road at the bridge over the River Dodder (Anglesey Bridge, constructed in 1832). Morehampton / Donnybrook / Stillorgan Road is the major artery through Donnybrook. Stillorgan Road is national route N11, which is the major route to Wicklow, Wexford, and other points in the south-east of Ireland. The RTÉ studios and the Elm Park Golf Course mark the southern limit of Donnybrook; UCD, immediately south of RTÉ and Elm Park, is in Belfield.


Here is a directory of public establishments in Donnybrook, travelling from north to south. Gaps in the numerical sequence of street addresses are residential properties.
