Where is the Edenmore Community Development Project?

View Larger Map

Edenmore is located within the Raheny area of North Dublin. It is a well established urban area and has a population of around10 000 people. The estate began to be built during the early part of the 1960s and was part of the Dublin City Corporations extensive program to provide social housing for an expanding population. It was also developed as part of a trend towards suburbanisation as conditions in the Inner City areas of Dublin were increasingly seen as unacceptable. The estate today has expanded to encompass a much larger area that was probably never anticipated with a mix of both social housing, still under the authority of Dublin City Council and Private Housing. The area is of a typical design for it's time with features that in todays housing market, if included would put a large dent in anybody s finances. The housing layout is typically terraced blocks of 5 or 6 houses, with gardens at the front and the back. Houses are usually 3 bedroomed and the gardens are very extensive. Consequently density levels are very low. There is also a significant amount of Green Space within the area, which adds to the overall quality of the estate.

It is serviced by Dublin Bus (42A/B and 29A) and a local DART Station on it's perimeter, providing good access into Dublin City (traveling South) and out of the City to Malahide and Howth (traveling North). Arterial routes by car that take you to Edenmore are the Malahide Road, Howth Road, Tonelegee Road and Springdale Road.

The Project office itself is located at Unit 7C, Edenmore Shopping Centre, Edenmore Avenue, Raheny, Dublin 5. We can be contacted via telephone: 01-8771957 or email:
