Rush is a well know coastal town in North County Dublin. It lies on the coast between Skerries and Lusk. Rush was once viewed as the heart of market gardening in Leinster and many people were employed in agriculture. Nowadays, however, horticulture and agriculture have been superseded by Rush’s increasing role as a “commuter belt” town. Schools, shops, restaurants, bars, Rush has a great selection of them all, and when it comes to sports and leisure pursuits there’s everything from Cricket, Golf, Sailing, Windsurfing & G.A.A. The local Millbank Theatre, home to Rush Dramatic Society is respected for its quality plays and dramas. Rush Musical Society is well respected for its annual productions also.
Some of the many fine attractions around the town include the historic remains of Kenure House, Swords Castle and park, Malahide Castle and demesne, Ardgillan Castle and demesne, the Classical Mansion of Newbridge House, demesne and farm, not forgetting the many beautiful beaches just a short drive away. The seascape view here includes Lambay Island, a large, privately owned bird sanctuary. You may feel that you are in rural Ireland which makes it difficult to believe that you are just a 30 minutes’ drive from the City Centre.
