Read about Ballsbridge below
Ballsbridge (Droichead na Dothra in Irish) is a suburb of Dublin, Ireland, named for the bridge spanning the River Dodder on the south side of the city. The sign on the bridge still proclaims it as 'Ball's Bridge' in recognition of the fact that the original bridge in this location was built and owned by a Mr. Ball.
The bridge itself forms the centre of the Ballsbridge suburb which extends northwards towards the Grand Canal along Northumberland Road and Shelbourne Road, extends southwards along the Merrion Road towards Merrion and along Anglesea Road towards Donnybrook, and westwards to encompass the area around Pembroke Road, Clyde Road, Elgin Road, and Herbert Park. The park also forms part of Ballsbridge's nebulous border with Donnybrook.
The RDS has its grounds here, and the IRFU's Lansdowne Road headquarters (slated for re-development with full planning approval as of March 2007) is on the boundary between Ballsbridge and Irishtown. AIB also has its corporate headquarters in Ballsbridge.
The bulk of Dublin's embassies and many diplomatic residences are located in the southern part of Ballsbridge on and around Ailesbury Road.
