Clancy Quay: Transforming the face of premium renting in Dublin 8

A breakthrough rental community offering all the benefits of city life and village lifestyle with a unique range of amenities and services included

City life meets village lifestyle in a stunning, stylish rental development in Dublin 8


Having access to parks, green spaces and great local amenities right on your doorstep has never been more appealing, especially these days. This is one of the key factors driving interest in Clancy Quay, a premium rental community in Dublin 8, situated on the River Liffey and right beside the largest walled city park in Europe, the Phoenix Park.

Clancy Quay benefits from having The Irish National War Memorial Gardens next door and a cycle and walkway along the Liffey that runs all the way to the scenic Dublin village of Chapelizod. The Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA) and Kilmainham Gaol are also just a few minutes’ walk away.

Located in Islandbridge, it’s just 3km from the city centre – ideal if you work there and like to cycle or walk – and great for getting to the regions. There’s a Luas stop nearby, with numerous bus routes, and Heuston station, as well as convenient access for the M50 motorway.

Clancy Quay has a noticeable village feel that’s enhanced by the communal landscaped gardens and mix of sensitively restored heritage buildings, mews houses and modern apartments. With around 60 per cent of tenants being international the on site amenities and services, coupled with regular resident events, really help build the sense of community.

The 13-acre development has 865 homes in total, ranging from one-bed apartments to four-bed town houses with private gardens. The final phase, comprising 246 new apartments, has just been launched.

All apartments are fully furnished with bright, open interiors. The kitchens have stone worktops and are fitted with premium appliances and bathrooms are equipped with deluxe fixtures and finishes. They also carry high energy ratings, so tenants should find utility bills are lower than they would typically be elsewhere.

Residents have the opportunity to extend their living space with a residents’ lounge, multimedia room, games room, and a chef’s kitchen all available on site. 

Particularly useful in the current working from home climate is the business centre, which features office pods, a meeting room and a fully equipped fitness centre, open seven days a week, with membership included in the rent. 

Each of the resident amenities can be reserved in advance using the Clancy Quay app – which offers other features such as parcel management, maintenance requests, and a wide range of partnership offers and services. 

Other on site amenities include a children’s playground, putting green plus numerous gardens, landscaped space and roof top gardens (complete with BBQ facilities) that offer stunning views over the Phoenix Park. There’s also the popular artisan Storyboard Café and The Yard food market, with a grocery store and crèche due to open soon.
