Planning permission has been granted for two new primary schools on a new super-complex bordering Parkside. Each of the 2750-square-metre schools will feature 16 classrooms on two storeys. New access roads, entry/exit layouts, car parking spaces, bicycle parking and ball courts will be provided for in both schools in addition to a fully landscaped scheme.
Parkside is very well located for retail amenities. Make a day of it in nearby Portmarnock or Malahide village, browse the shops at Clare Hall and Northside Shopping Centres, or head to the Swords Pavillion. And, with Dublin’s city centre just a short trip away, you can visit Grafton Street and beyond whenever you wish.
Parkside is also a golfer’s paradise with Clontarf Golf Course and both Portmarnock and Royal Dublin Golf Links being very convenient, while the nearby pitch and putt course is fun for kids and beginners alike.
Foodies are well catered for in this area with Malahide, Portmarnock and Howth having some of the finest restaurants this side of the River Liffey whether your taste buds love fish, Asian fusion, Mediterranean or Irish cuisines.
Parks & Playgrounds
Immediately adjacent to Parkside are three parks, including Father Collins Park – a marvellous space and winner of numerous awards since it opened in 2009. Comprising 53 acres it is Ireland’s first wind-powered and sustainable public park and encompasses a .5 km running/cycling track, playing pitches and fitness stations, promenade, picnic areas and two playgrounds.
In addition, Parkside residents can enjoy Mayne River Park, a new, superbly landscaped nine acre amenity situated directly opposite the entrance to the development. Features include a running and walking track and a children’s play area.
Finally, a new Linear Park with 5 a-side football pitch, basketball court area and toddler play area will open at the same time as the two new onsite schools.
