Sandymount (Irish: Dumhach Thrá) is an affluent coastal suburb in Dublin 4 on the Southside of Dublin in Ireland. It is in the Dublin South–East constituency and the Pembroke Ward. It was once part of Pembroke Township, which took its name from the fact that this area was part of the estate of the Earl of Pembroke.
An early name for the area was Scal’d Hill or Scald Hill. During the 18th Century, there was a village called Brickfield Town on the site of Sandymount Green. This took its name from Lord Merrions Brickfields which stretched from here to Merrion at the time.
Dublin, capital of the Republic of Ireland, is on Ireland’s east coast at the mouth of the River Liffey. Its medieval buildings include 13th-century Dublin Castle and imposing St. Patrick’s Cathedral, founded in 1191. Temple Bar is a riverside nightlife and cultural quarter, home to the Irish Film Institute. Bustling, largely pedestrianised Grafton Street is the city’s principal shopping area, also famed for its buskers.
