History of Bayside
Bayside was a planned development on part of the lands of the large old district of Kilbarrack, whose largest settlement lay near what is now the centre of the new area. Title deeds for property in the area still show Kilbarrack. Kilbarrack’s historic church and graveyard, formerly The Chapel of Mone, the mariners’ church for Dublin, dating from the 13th century, lie about two thirds along Bayside’s seafront, towards the road junction which marks the beginning of Sutton and Baldoyle.
Bayside is located close to the sea and about 10 km north-east of the city centre, on the coast inshore from North Bull Island. Built in the 1970s, it is situated between Kilbarrack Road in Kilbarrack, from which it was formed, Baldoyle and Sutton; it meets the latter two where the coast road branches to Baldoyle Road on the way to Sutton Cross.
