Image of Clongriffin DART Station Openning Copper fastening this vibrant new town’s place on the map, the arrival of its very own dart station heralds an exciting new departure for Clongriffin and surrounding areas.  Sixty-three daily new departures and arrivals in fact!  The new rail service links to Connolly, Tara and Pearse Street Stations, offering commuters a fast, frequent, efficient and environmentally friendly service, not only to the city centre but to other stations along the DART line as well.  All Malahide DARTS as well as some Northern Commuter train lines also serve Clongriffin station.

Run by NCPS and opening from 6.00am until 9.00pm, the car park is available a half an hour before the dart starts and a half an hour after the last train in the evening.In tandem with this service, there is an efficient bus service for residents provided by the 128 bus, which operates from the new development in Clongriffin via Clare Hall, Malahide Road, Fairview, City Centre, St. Stephen’s Green and Rathmines Road to Palmerston Park. Buses operate every ten minutes on weekdays and every 10-20 minutes on Saturday and Sundays.  

Being on the doorstep of both Dublin City and the coast, the North Fringe development has plenty to offer both residents and visitors alike.  Commanding breathtaking views over Dublin Bay and being just a 10-minute walk or a 5-minute cycle to the sea at Baldoyle, access to an array of activities including water sports and coastal walks couldn’t be easier.  Also, the award winning Fr. Collins Park, a Park for the people”, has become an integral part of the community, drawing families and visitors from far and wide, to enjoy the many fun and fitness facilities the park has to offer. 

 

Notwithstanding the fact that much of the North Fringe area is new, the development is ideally situated to both complement and benefit from a full range of facilities, both new and existing.   From crèches to schools (www.belmayne-etns.ie, www.stfrancispsbelmayne.com) and retail (Carry Out Off Licence, Carry Out Off licence on Facebook) to restaurants, Clongriffin has it all within easy reach. Having both a ready-made and expanding population on their doorstep, coupled with that all important public transport, Clongriffin now provides an excellent opportunity for further businesses to establish themselves in the area. 

 

So, next stop Clongriffin?  All aboard!
