A vision for the Castle Stables and Courtyards at Rathfarnham

Rathfarnham Castle Courtyard

South Dublin County Council is inviting the public to help shape a vision for the Castle Stables and Courtyards at Rathfarnham through an online consultation. The Castle Stables and Courtyards at Rathfarnham have been earmarked for redevelopment as a new public amenity in the county’s tourism strategy, published earlier this year. The development of the site will be heavily informed by both this tourism strategy and the county’s development plan.  

Speaking ahead of the opening of the public consultation, Mayor of South Dublin County Council, Cllr Alan Edge said: “Drawing on the tourism strategy and county development plan, the Council wants the Castle Stables and Courtyards at Rathfarnham to be sustainable from a climate and economic perspective.  It’s also important that the space is developed in a way that is sensitive to its heritage, and which contributes to the inclusive development of Rathfarnham village.

“This consultation is an opportunity to step back and think about the activities and offerings that the site might accommodate to meet the needs of the community in Rathfarnham, as well as visitors to the area. There is huge potential to create a mixed-use space that is welcoming for everyone, and a space that will be sustainable in the long term.”

Following the consultation, South Dublin County Council will run a series of focus groups to consider the vision for the site in greater detail.   The results of this deliberation will feed into the development of site plans. The online consultation will run till 26th May and can be accessed, as follows on https://bit.ly/RathStablesCyard and in hardcopy from Ballyroan Library, Orchardstown Avenue, Rathfarnham, Dublin 14.
