The traffic lights at this junction facilitate pedestrians. A former Methodist Church, now converted into offices, is across the road from the Clinic and is a useful landmark. You can plan a route to 3 Charleston Rd by using our journey planner on the following website.

Approaching from Rathmines, you turn onto Castlewood Avenue from the main street in Rathmines at the side of the Swan Shopping Centre. The Clinic is less than 400 yards from this corner, going in the direction of Ranelagh.
Driving from the City/Canal, however, you cannot make this turn to the left onto Castlewood Avenue at the side of the Swan Centre in Rathmines. On crossing the Canal bridge at Portobello therefore, it is best not to drive straight onto Rathmines Rd Lower, but turn immediately left down the canal and take the next immediate turn to the right after 20 yards. This brings you onto Mountpleasent Avenue which brings you straight to Belgrave Square in less than half a mile.
Routes 11, 11A, 13B, 44, 48A come from the city centre to Ranelagh. Route 18 is a cross city route that passes outside the Clinic door on Charleston Rd.

It is the only link to the DART , which can be accessed at Sandymount Avenue Station.
