Portobello is as close a city-suburb as you can get, a stone’s throw from the action. It’s a decidedly trendy and
Ranelagh is a suburb full of great cafés, restaurants and bars within walking distance of the city centre. Trendy and upmarket and house prices reflect this upmarket neighbourhood. A good place to own a home these days as Dublin City centre extends itself further and further away from the river Liffey.
Some nostalgic history about Ranelagh
The district was originally a village known as Cullenswood  just outside Dublin, surrounded by landed estates. On Easter Monday in 1207, a celebrating group of English
inhabitants of Dublin were attacked here by Irish raiders from county
Wicklow. Three hundred people were said to have been killed.
In the early years of the Irish Confederate Wars (1641–1649) the area was the scene of skirmishes culminating in the Battle of Rathmines in August 1649. After the Irish united with the Royalists against the Parliamentarians, an attempt was made to take Dublin. Their army under Ormonde was defeated, many of them killed, and the place where they fell (mainly between Rathmines and Ranelagh) was known for a long time as the Bloody Fields.
The area was incorporated into the expanding city in the 19th century, after which massive development took place.
The locality became known as Ranelagh when a popular entertainment venue (now a public park) was established about 1770 and named Ranelagh Gardens after a similar venture of the same name in Chelsea, London. (The model and the name were also copied in other cities, including Liverpool, New York and Paris).
The original Ranelagh Gardens in Chelsea was built on the site of
Ranelagh House, the London home of the Jones family, who took their title (Earls of Ranelagh) from lands in County Wicklow that had belonged to Fiach McHugh O’Byrne sometimes described as Lord Ranelagh, because he was head of the Gabhal Ragnaill branch of the O’Byrne clan.
In 1785, only two years after the first manned flight, Richard Crosbie successfully flew in a hot air balloon from Ranelagh Gardens to Clontarf. The 225th anniversary of his flight was commemorated with a balloon flight from the same gardens on 23 January 2010 although due to adverse weather the balloon did not take off.
Smithfield (Irish: Margadh na Feirme, meaning “Farm Market”) is an area on the Northside of Dublin. Its focal point is a public square, formerly an open market, now officially called Smithfield Plaza, but known locally as Smithfield Square or Smithfield Market.
Notable landmarks include the Old Jameson Whiskey Distillery and the Observation Tower.
Notable businesses include the children’s animation studio Brown Bag Films.
Historically, Smithfield was a suburb of Oxmantown and lay within the civil parish of St. Paul’s.
There is no general agreement on the extent of the area known as
Smithfield, but it roughly incorporates the area bounded by the River Liffey to the south, Bow Street to the east, Queen Street to the west, and North Brunswick street in the suburb of Grangegorman to the north.
