Location and access
Bayside is located near 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.
Bayside is accessed from the main coastal road from the city centre to Howth, and easily accessible from Dublin city using the Dublin Area Rapid Transit (DART) suburban rail system, having its own station, which opened on 11 June 1973. It can also be reached by Dublin Bus routes (in 2007) 17A, 31, 32, 32A, 32B and 105.
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 home to the Third Day Chorale multi-denominational musical group, operating since 1975. Under the musical directorship of Ruaidhrí Ó Dálaigh the group meets every Wednesday night between 7:45 and 10:00 to sing a wide range of sacred and secular choral music.
Former residents of Bayside include Ronan Keating of Boyzone, professional snooker player Fergal O'Brien.
