ALONG THE DUBLIN ROAD IN SUTTON
I checked online and discovered that there are 130 properties for sale at the moment and yet I was told that it was difficult to find a property for sale in the area.
Sutton is a residential suburb on the Northside of Dublin, Ireland. It occupies the tombolo which links Howth Head to the mainland, some of the lower slopes of Howth Hill, and a little of the adjacent coasts. The area lies within the jurisdiction of Fingal County Council. There is a small commercial core at the Sutton Cross road intersection.
Sutton lies in the ancient Barony of Coolock, within the traditional County Dublin.
Sutton is surrounded by many beaches. The Burrow Beach is particularly popular among locals and tourists. It is approximately 1.2 km and stretches from Sutton Golf Club to Howth, along one side of the tombolo connecting Howth Head to the mainland. Sutton Strand runs along the coast road and in front of St. Fintan’s church.
Sutton Park is a housing development formed within Kilbarrack lands, on the coastline of Dublin Bay, Ireland.
Built on the site of an old sand quarry and neighbouring fields, it was constructed in the 1960s, a decade prior to the Bayside streets to the west, with which it is usually grouped. Located between the Dublin Area Rapid Transit (DART) line and the coastal Dublin Road, with access from Bayside Boulevard, Bayside Park and one external road link to the R105 coast road (itself a section of the Dublin-Howth-Holyhead-London road built by Thomas Telford in 1823). According to some accounts pedestrian access is also possible through Kilbarrack Cemetery, which stands between some of the Sutton Park streets and the sea [when I visited the cemetery today there was no passage through the cemetery as the only access was via the Dublin Road … there is only one gate].
