THE HILL – HUNDRED YEAR OLD PUB HAS BEEN VACANT SINCE JUNE 2019
In June 2019 it was suddenly announced that this hundred year old pub would cease trading immediately.
Unfortunately because of the current health crisis many more well known pubs are likely to close over the next few months. The Dice Bar was one that closed recently https://www.irishtimes.com/news/ireland/irish-news/publican-blames-covid-19-as-dublin-s-dice-bar-to-shut-for-good-1.4418950
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.
