Cherrywood (Irish: Coill na Silíní) is a developing new suburb of Dublin, bordering Loughlinstown and Rathmichael. It is located to the south east of the city, in Dún Laoghaire–Rathdown. The development primarily comprises Cherrywood Business Park, and some residential development. It will be fully completed by 2030.


Cherrywood lies in between the M50 motorway and the N11 road, about a kilometer north of where they fork from the M11, and is divided by the R118 regional road which runs northeast to southwest through the area, crossing the N11 at Wyattville Road and joining the M50 at Junction 16. The Business Park (officially Cherrywood Science and Technology Park) lies south of this road and a residential zone to the north.

Cherrywood Business Park

In 1998 the first office-buildings were developed in the Cherrywood Business Park but development proceeded slowly. As of July 2013 several of the buildings are still empty while other planned developments were never completed. The total the area is approximately 400 acres. As with many planned developments in Ireland, the property crash in 2008 affected this development: groundwork had started on the new national headquarters for Royal Bank of Scotland and other office blocks, but several planned developments where halted.

New management

In 2012 investors created a new management company marketing the area again after the collapse of Liam Carroll's group.[1] Backed by AIB Bank and Danske Bank (mother company of National Irish Bank). The area received a facelift: the main under-ground concrete foundation was filled in offering some extra open parking area. Also the "Facilities Building", which until recently had a Subway outlet has now a 2 story Ben Dunne gym.[2]

There are also plans to ask IKEA to open their 2nd Irish shop[3] and a large Park and Ride LUAS stop is also under consideration at Bride's Glen LUAS terminus. The main tenant in the development is Dell computers which has its Dublin Campus located here. This office is not only the commercial Irish HQ, it also houses many of the specialized EMEA technical support teams. Other large tenants are financial/insurance company Friends First,[4] Capricorn Ventis, Rational Full Tilt Poker and health-care company Covidien occupies the ground floor of the larger buildings.


Cherrywood is being formed around the business park, in a deliberate process under a Cherrywood-Carrickmines Local Area Plan, the 2004 County Development Plan, and a related Cherrywood-Rathmichael Area Plan. Cherrywood is designated as a District Centre, and strict limits apply to certain forms of development there.


The Luas Green Line was extended from Sandyford to Cherrywood. Construction started in February 2007 and the line became operational on 16 October 2010.[5] There are now two Luas stops in Cherrywood: Cherrywood and the terminus, Bride's Glen.
