Donabate, Co. Dublin

Donabate (Domhnach Bat in Irish) is a suburb of Dublin. The town lies about 25 km (15 miles) north of Dublin city centre on a small peninsula, which it shares with the townsland of Portrane.

In recent years the population of Donabate has begun growing quickly due to rising house prices in Dublin and the easy access of the city by train and road from Donabate.

Donabate is well known as a golfing destination with six golf courses - parkland and links - in the immediate vicinity. There is also a great beach that stretches for miles and Newbridge House has a lovely park and childrens playground.
