Video of Rathgar, Dublin City , Republic of Ireland

Rathgar (Irish: Ráth Garbh, meaning "rough ringfort") is a suburb of Dublin, Ireland, lying about 3 kilometres south of the city centre. Rathgar has a number of notable architectural features, notably Christ Church Rathgar[1] (part of the Presbyterian Church in Ireland) at the junction of Rathgar Road and Highfield Road in the village centre. The Roman Catholic Church of The Three Patrons (named after the three Patron Saints of Ireland: St Patrick, St Bridget and St Columba) on Rathgar Road is known as "The Servants' Church"

The suburb's most famous son is James Joyce, who was born in Brighton Square. Jack Lynch, who was Taoiseach of Ireland intermittently from 1966 to 1979 had his home at Garville Avenue, Rathgar. Also Bram Stoker, author of Dracula, lived in Rathgar on Orwell Park for a time. Arnold Bax rented a villa in Bushy Park Road for a short time.

A Georgian house on Kenilworth Square west provided the setting for the film of Maeve Binchy's novel Tara Road.

Éamon de Valera's presidential office was moved to 53, Kenilworth Square in 1921 when his house in Blackrock was raided. It was in this house that Arthur Griffith presented Lloyd George's proposals for the Anglo-Irish Treaty to de Valera four days before the Treaty was signed in London.

Convicted Croatian war-criminal Andrija Artukovic is also believed to have spent part of his life in a house in Rathgar after the war due to Ireland's neutrality.

Rathgar is largely a quiet suburb with good amenities, including primary and secondary schools, nursing homes, child-care and sports facilities, and good public transport to the city centre. The housing stock largely comprises red-brick late Georgian and Victorian era terraces and much of the area lies within an architectural conservation zone. One of the main schools in area is The High School, Dublin, which moved to the area from its original location on Harcourt Street. Other schools include Stratford College on Zion road, founded in the 1950s by members of the Jewish Community in Dublin. Dodder Park is located in Rathgar.

St. Luke's Hospital, Highfield Road, specialises in cancer treatments. This is currently under threat of closure and many of the local residents are opposed to this. Mount Carmel General and Maternity hospital is located on Orwell Road.
