Ranelagh

Ranelagh (Irish Raghnallach) is a residential area and urban village on the southside of Dublin city, Ireland. It is in the postal district of Dublin 6. It is one of the city's most exclusive residential areas where house prices are second only to Dublin 4, boasting fine Victorian townhouses.

Ranelagh started life as Cullenswood and was later named Ranelagh after Ranelagh Gardens the park of Willbrook house now demolished. Part of Ranelagh gardens now survive in the park called Ranelagh Gardens

The district was originally a village just outside Dublin city until it was swallowed up by the expanding city more than a century ago. It still has a village-like atmosphere with many small family-run shops, especially around the triangular intersection ('the Triangle') that marks its centre. There are several secondary schools in the area, including Gonzaga College and Sandford Park. It was named after a park in London, Ranelagh Gardens.

The green Luas line passes through, and stops at, Ranelagh/Raghnallach.

Ranelagh is in the local government electoral area of Rathmines and the Dail Constituency of Dublin South-East.

Former World snooker champion Ken Doherty is from the area and still practices in Jason's. (As of 2006, Jason's no longer exists.)
