Local Area

Oaklodge is set in Pembroke Park, which is a beautiful quiet street. The property is only 5 minutes walk from the Royal Dublin Showground (RDS) which hosts many trade fairs and events including the famous Dublin Horse show (www.rds.ie). The house is in Dublin's most attractive suburb which is known as the 'embassy belt' because of the large number of foreign consulates and embassies We are close to Dublin's universities. You can use the location as a base to take a trip on the local railway (DART) - to the seaside towns of Greystones in the South or Howth in the North, both well worth a visit for a change of scenery and to take in the fresh sea air of Dublin bay.
