Dundrum, originally a town in its own right, is now a suburb of Dublin in Dún Laoghaire–Rathdown, Ireland.The area is located in the postal districts of Dublin 14 and Dublin 16.HistoryOne of the earliest mentions of the area concerns the location of the original St. Nahi's Church in the 8th century on which site today's 18th-century church currently stands. The ancient name for Dundrum is "Taney" which derives from Tigh Naithi meaning the house or place of Nath Í.Recent archeological excavations near the church have revealed three enclosures associated with the church, the earliest dating from the 6th century, and a significant find was an almost complete Flemish Redware jug from the 13th century.The first reference to the placename of Taney occurs in the Charter of St. Laurence O'Toole to Christchurch in 1178 as "half of Rathnahi" and in the following year in a Papal bull of Pope Alexander III to the same archbishop as "Medietatem de Tignai". Variations of the spelling continued until the mid-16th century.Use our Ireland trip builder tool to arrange your visit to Dundrum and other destinations in Ireland.
