Lucan Area Guide

Guide to Lucan

Back in the 18th Century Lucan was a spa resort where the people of Dublin came to enjoy medicinal qualities of the water. As a result, the village became increasingly popular, getting a railway and even it’s own tramline. Today, Lucan is one of Ireland’s largest urban settlements with a population of over 50,000. Lucan is situated in West Dublin with Old Lucan just North of the N4 and new Lucan bordering Palmerstown, Clondalkin and Adamstown.

Although Lucan is surrounded by gorgeous countryside, it is still is very well connected. The train services from Adamstown will get you into Hueston Station in 15minutes. Dublin bus routes 25, 66 and 67 ensure that you will never be waiting too long for a bus into Dublin. On a good day with no traffic it is a 20 minute drive into Dublin City Centre.

The housing stock is an 80/20 split between houses and apartments. Like many other Dublin suburbs, most of the properties were built from the 1960’s onwards. The range of prices in Lucan is particularly impressive, with properties for vendors at both ends of the market. Due to it’s proximity to Dublin and the range of amenities, Lucan has a thriving rental sector.

The number and diversity of the schools on offer make Lucan a very popular choice with families. There are 17 primary schools and seven secondary schools in the area. There are also an abundance of bars, restaurants and coffee shops to suit all tastes. The River Café and Carrolls are excellent options for lunch. For a something a little higher end, Reeds on The River is excellent. If it’s a good pint of Guinness you’re after, then Kenny’s is your best bet. For those who prefer Netflix and chill, don’t worry JustEat has 58 restaurants available for delivery.

For amenities, there is a lot to offer both inside and just outside Lucan. Liffey Valley Shopping Centre and Phoenix Park are both a short spin away. For gym goers, Lucan has a wide variety of options most notably Ben Dunne’s Gym and the gorgeous Westmantown Health Club. There is also Lucan Golf Club and various GAA, soccer and rugby clubs. For the walkers, Griffeen Valley Park and Lucan Demesne are gorgeous for a leisurely stroll or jog.
