Fairview

Fairview (Irish Fionn Radharc) is a district on the Northside of Dublin, Ireland.

The district is bordered on the southwest by the River Tolka, on the north by Marino, on the east by Clontarf, and on the southeast by the DARTrailway line to Howth. Its main commercial areas are Fairview, a busy road alongside Fairview Park, and Fairview Strand, a narrower commercial strip running from Edge's Corner around to the Luke Kelly bridge. St. Vincent's Hospital was founded by the Daughters of Charity in 1857. Located on the Richmond Road, it provides psychiatric services for the North East quadrant of the city. Interestingly, the Irish name for Fairview as seen on street signs opposite Fairview Park is Baile Bocht, rather than Fionn Radharc - suggesting that the area was originally part of adjacent Ballybough.

Fairview Park, built on reclaimed land, has been reduced in size in recent years due to the development of the Dublin Port Tunnel, whose entrance is just beyond the old park perimeter. Dublin City Council have promised a full restoration of the park, which is expected to be completed by 2008.

Bram Stoker, creator of Dracula, was a resident of The Crescent, a quiet street near Fairview's border with Clontarf.

The area also includes Dublin's first 50-metre swimming pool, at the Westwood Club adjacent to Fairview Park. Barcode, a popular nightclub, is also located at Westwood Club.

On Fairview Strand, near Luke Kelly bridge, is Dublin's oldest Jewish Cemetery. The graveyard was built in 1857 and contains more than 200 graves.

Fairview is served by the Clontarf Road DART station. The area can also be reached by way of several buses from Dublin city centre, including 20, 27B, 29A, 31, 32, 42A/B, 123 and 130.
