Beechmount Drive is described as a small cul-de-sac of detached houses located in the townland of Farranboley, Clonskeagh, Dublin 14. It is off Bird Avenue, near the junction with Dundrum Road. However there are two sections to Beechmount Drive connected by an ugly lane or alleyway. So Beechmount Drive extends from Mulvey Park to Bird Avenue.
The road was originally known as Ardnabel, and the earliest known reference to it is on an Ordnance Survey map from 1838-1845. In the 1898-1913 OSI map, it is annotated as Farranboley Cottage and Ardnabel respectively.
I came across the following description in the property section of a national newspaper: "A large Victorian house in a suburban cul-de-sac in Clonskeagh, Dublin 14, could appeal to a buyer who wants a large period home – or to a developer with an eye to building something on the 0.09-acre back lawn, which has a wide gate opening to Beechmount Drive. Roebuck Manor was the home of the late Jan Kaminski, a Holocaust survivor who arrived in Ireland after the second World War and founded the Concorde Travel agency in the 1960s; he died in 2019. Now the house he bought in the 1970s, Roebuck Manor, Beechmount Drive, Clonskeagh, Dublin 14, a 484sq m (5,212sq ft) four-bed on 0.42 acres, is for sale through Lisney for €1,950,000. It has a BER of E1. Beechmount Drive is a small cul-de-sac of detached 1960s-style houses built before Jan Kaminski bought Roebuck. Beechmount Drive is off Bird Avenue in Clonskeagh, near the junction with Dundrum Road."
