Johnstown, Dublin


Johnstown, Dublin

Johnstown is a small area of Dublin in Ireland, in the administrative county of Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown and the Dáil constituency of Dún Laoghaire. Once part of the grounds of Johnstown House, it is now primarily an estate of semi-detached houses and detached houses built during the 1960s by private developers and apartment blocks built in the last few years due to a heavy demand for housing.

Johnstown is also the name of a parish of the Roman Catholic Church. Its church was recently (2005) reroofed and a new community centre has opened beside the church, which accommodates local groups.

The area of Johnstown is bordered by Cabinteely, Sallynoggin, Ballybrack and Killiney.
