Rathmines, Dublin 6, is one the most desired addresses.

The location is excellent, just outside of the city centre, so you can escape the hustle and bustle. But it’s also easy to commute to – many people walk only half an hour.

It is an inner-city area with a lot of amenities, but there aren’t many large parks nearby. However, there are plenty of beautiful greenery nearby.

Belgrave Square lies between Ranelagh (Rathmines) and is described by one Yelp reviewer to be an ‘oasis for calm’. It offers a children’s playground, trails and benches for enjoying the greenery.

Ranelagh Park can be found in the town of Ranelagh. This park has a duck pool and playground. Mount Pleasant Square is a smaller public park that is occupied mostly by a tennis team.

It’s only a few minutes away from St Stephen’s Green or Iveagh Gardens.
