GOODBYE TO THE HILL – HELLO TO THE HILL
In June 2019 it was announced that this hundred year old pub (Situated on Mountpleasant Square in Ranelagh) would cease trading immediately. However, it has recently reopened as a Gastro Bar offering Spicy Chicken Wings or Irish Cod and Chips.
At the centre of Ranelagh is “Ranelagh Triangle”, semi-officially “the Angle”, which is the junction of Ranelagh Village and Charleston Road at Field’s Terrace. Nearby restaurant “Tribeca” references these geographical features (i.e., Tri-angle Be-low Ca-nal). To the North of the Triangle is the “Hill Area” of Ranelagh, which was the scene of Lee Dunne’s novel, “Goodbye to the Hill”. Ranelagh contains many fine Victorian streets such as those surrounding Mount Pleasant Square.
