The place with great history

Since the late 19th Century, Blackrock has been considered one of Dublin’s most sought-after addresses. Lord Proby, after whom this development is named, built his home, Grey House, here in 1746.

Lord Proby was looking to escape the busy city lifestyle of the capital and bring his family to a place near the sea.

The original grounds of Grey House featured walled orchards, treelined walkways and an ornamental lake. Happily, these gardens are now the charming Carysfort Park.

The place near the city

Proby Place is only 9 km from Dublin City Centre. There is a variety of transport options with Blackrock DART station approximately a 10 minute walk away and an abundance of bus routes that pass along the Rock Road and Stillorgan dual carriageway towards the city centre.
