Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Marino

In the 1920s, the area was developed through Dublin City Corporation’s first social-housing scheme, based on the Garden City housing scheme first envisaged by Ebenezer Howard in 1898, which involved the idea of transplanting citizens from inner-city to city suburbs, with a parkland at its centre, and good transport links to the city centre.

It was an idealistic model that has left Dublin with a beautifully designed town that is unique in the sense that it was deemed too expensive to be repeated and therefore represents a very specific moment in Irish urban design.

Village life
Today’s Marino is a north city suburb that has managed to maintain its village feel, largely due to the fact the original builds are still present, as well as the excellent green spaces that were the original focal point of the Garden City design.
In terms of shopping there is a short row of shops on one side of the northern end of which includes shops and Donnelly’s Home Bakery, which was established back in 1954.

Marino Mart at the other end of Marino, where Fairview Strand meets Malahide Road, is the main retail area. This was the original purpose-built shopping block in the 1920s design, and now includes many shops including Wright’s fish shop, the local butchers’ and the Fresh Market deli/vegetable shop and Wine Shop.

Getting around
Marino is a 30-minute walk to O’Connell Street, making it an ideal base to explore Dublin city centre. If you wish to take public transport, there are a number bus routes run regularly to the city from Fairview Park (5 mins walk), with Clontarf Road Dart Station also located a short walk 10mins from Marino should you wish to explore the Dublin’s beautiful coastline & beaches – Howth to Greystones.
