South East Area
The South East Area is one of five administrative areas used by Dublin City Council to co-ordinate the delivery of services in the city. The area stretches south from the River Liffey to Terenure and east along the River Dodder over to the Merrion Gates on the coast.
It is a diverse district, containing part of the medieval core of Dublin; the City’s premier shopping district; the cultural quarter of Temple Bar; Inner City commercial and residential districts; and suburban villages such as Ringsend, Irishtown, Sandymount, Ranelagh, Rathmines, Terenure and Rathgar.
Pleasant canal walks, coastal facilities, parks and elegant squares and many local sports clubs provide a host of recreational amenities.
