Situated off a rustic old road just outside the fashionable village of Shankill in south county Dublin, Woodbank is surrounded by some of the most stunning scenery in the country. The Dublin Mountains – with its meandering walks overviewing the capital and its bay – provide a wonderful backdrop to the development.
Within walking distance of the coast and close to Killiney beach – Ireland’s “Bay of Naples” – Woodbank is only a short drive away from the idyllic village of Glendalough, as well as Powerscourt Estate, home to the highest waterfall in Ireland, and the Glen of the Downs, all of which provide perfect days-out for families and other residents. The Sugar Loaf mountain, beneath which nestles the Avoca Store and Cafe, is also nearby.
Buildings of architectural and cultural merit within, or close to, Shankill include Shanganagh Castle, Rathmichael Church and Puck’s Castle.
