Suburb of Dublin, Ireland. Situated just 4 miles north of the City Centre. Voted the "Most Desireable Place to Live on the North-side". (I'm sure that will attract many southsider jokes!!)
History of the area includes the Battle of Clontarf (1014) where the Vikings were defeated by Brian Boru, the High King of Ireland.
Clontarf is also home to a large bird sanctuary which is the closest sactuary to any capital city in the world.
