The original village clustered around the 13th century Dundrum Castle (now in ruins), built as part of the defences around Dublin. The village expanded greatly after the arrival of the Dublin and South Eastern Railway (DSER) in 1854. The 18th century church of St. Nahi is located in Dundrum.
The Luas tram system passes through the town, over the large cable-stayed 'William Dargan Bridge', at Taney Cross near the town centre. It is the biggest engineering structure on the line. The route was originally a railway line opened by the DSER. Closed in 1958, the alignment was preserved intact for several decades.
