It’s worth taking a bus to Glasnevin, a pleasant suburb with a fascinating cemetery and beautiful Botanical Gardens. I am told that the new Dublin City University (DCU) campus features several remarkable buildings.
Further afield, Castleknock. Chapelizod and the Strawberry Beds are also pleasant suburbs. The elegant Dunsink Observatory is a fascinating C18th Enlightenment oasis in an area of troubled modern housing estates.
