St Lawrence Road needs little introduction as being one of Clontarf's premier roads, from the terrace of redbrick homes to the mature trees and unique street lighting, it is ideally positioned with Howth Road at the top and the Clontarf Road and promenade at the bottom. Clontarf is a coastal suburb on the north side of Dublin. It has a range of commercial facilities mainly centred on Vernon Avenue. Clontarf's most notable amenity is its seafront, with a promenade running continuously from Alfie Byrne Road to the wooden bridge at Dollymount. As well as extensive walks and green areas, St Anne's Park is nearby and is the second largest municipal park in Dublin. Clontarf contains numerous sporting facilities, such as GAA, Rugby, Cricket, Tennis, Golf and Sailing. The local schools are also of excellent repute. Clontarf is one stop on the DART from the city centre, has a cosy village atmosphere and most roads lead down to the sea. The place is steeped in history. Clontarf's ancient name, Cluain Tarbh, means "meadow of the bulls", from the sound of the waves on the seafront which was likened to the bellowing of bulls. ‘Glenmaurice House' will no doubt offer the new owners their own unique piece of local history.
