Dolphin's Barn

Dolphin's Barn (Irish: An Carnán, meaning "the parcel") is an inner city suburb of Dublin, Ireland, situated on the Southside of the city in the Dublin 8, and partially in the Dublin 12, postal district. Its name derives from a family named Dolphyn who once owned a storehouse there. Surrounding areas include The Liberties, Inchicore, Islandbridge, Kilmainham and Crumlin. It is home to one of the city's busiest fire stations which is situated on the corner of Parnell Road and Rutland Avenue. The Grand Canal passes through the centre of the locality under Dolphin's Barn Bridge.

The Dublin marathon passes down South Circular Road in Dolphin's Barn.

Dolphin's Barn is the home of both Kevin's Hurling Club [1] and former League of Ireland club Dolphins.

The official Jewish cemetery of Dublin is on Aughavannagh Road near Dolphin's Barn. The original Dublin Jewish cemetery was Ballybough Cemetery in Fairview.
