Ranelagh is a residential area and urban village on the southside of Dublin city, Ireland. It is in the postal district of Dublin 6. The district was originally a village just outside Dublin city until it was swallowed up by the expanding city more than a century ago. It still has a village-like atmosphere with many small family-run shops, especially around the triangular intersection ("the Triangle") that marks its centre. There are several primary (including an Educate Together facility) and secondary schools in the area, including Gonzaga College and Sandford Park.
The area was named after a park in London, Ranelagh Gardens, or possibly after the park of Willbrook House, now demolished. Part of the old Ranelagh Gardens now survive in the park of the same name.
Ranelagh is sometimes referenced as one of Dublin’s more exclusive residential areas, with house prices second only to Dublin 4, and Victorian townhouses.
The green Luas line passes through, and stops at, Ranelagh.
Ranelagh is in the local government electoral area of Rathmines and the Dail Constituency of Dublin South-East.
Former World snooker champion Ken Doherty is from the area and used to practice in Jason’s. (As of 2006, Jason’s (as a snooker club) no longer exists.)
The area is also the home for some of Irelands leading politicians. Dr. Garret Fitzgerald, who was Taoiseach (Prime Minister) of Ireland intermittently from 1981 to 1987 has his home at Annavilla in Ranelagh. Former Tanaiste and Minister for Justice Michael McDowell also lives in Ranelagh off the triangle. Former President of Ireland and UN High Commissioner Mary Robinson was also a resident of the area.
