WILLIAM VISITS FAIRVIEW



Fairview is a coastal suburb of Dublin in Ireland, in the jurisdiction of Dublin City Council. Part of the area forms Fairview Park on land reclaimed from the sea.

One of the area's main features, Fairview Park, built on reclaimed land, was reduced in size during the 2000s, due to the development of the Dublin Port Tunnel, whose entrance is just beyond the old park perimeter. The park has now been restored. Along with the two smaller playgrounds which remain, a large children's playground has been constructed, a band stand, skate park, new paths in parts and greenery continue to be improved on.

The main commercial areas are Fairview, a busy road alongside Fairview Park, and Fairview Strand, a narrower commercial and residential strip running from Edge's Corner around to Luke Kelly Bridge.

The area also includes Dublin's first 50-metre swimming pool, at the West Wood Club, built on a former waste depot adjacent to Fairview Park. Other facilities at West Wood include tennis courts, a climbing wall, gym, childcare, day spa, café, squash, football, an Irish Montessori, and the Dracula Museum.

Ireland's largest sporting stadium and home to the Gaelic Athletic Association - the GAA - Croke Park is located near Fairview. Fairview and Marino both contain restaurants, cafes and pubs, which draw trade from events at Croke Park.
