Marlay Park is a 300 acre suburban park located just outside Dublin’s City Centre. Acquired in 1972, Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council reopened this newly redeveloped park in 1975. The park, central to the community contains many recreational spaces such as a nine-hole, par-three golf course (reopened in 2010 after redesign and rebuild), tennis courts, six football pitches, five GAA pitches, a cricket pitch, two children’s playgrounds and a miniature railway run by the Dublin Society of Model and Experimental Engineers. There is also a craft courtyard with home craft shops and a coffee shop. Located within Marlay Park is Marlay House built by Thomas Taylor. The house is a magnificent example of Georgian Architecture, and features many elaborate feature such as plasterwork by Michael Stapleton.
