Cornelscourt is a small suburban area of South Dublin, situated between Cabinteely and Foxrock. It has a mostly commercial rather than residential character and is best known for being the site of Ireland's first Big-box store, Dunnes Stores. Geography[edit sourceÂ | edit]
Cornelscourt consists of the houses and shops on either side of a section of the bypassed Old Bray Road between the junction with the N11 to the East. Along this strip are: a petrol station, a pub called 'The Magic Carpet' , a drama studio called 'Arclight', an Indian Restaurant, several take-away food outlets, a convenience store and the above-mentioned Dunnes Stores. The surrounding residential housing is laid out in suburban housing estates. Local Area Plan[edit sourceÂ | edit]
The area has been designated a 'District Centre' by Dun Laoghaire County Council. A local area plan for the area is currently being implemented with the aim of making aesthetic and functional improvements through redesign of road layout, street furniture etc. References[edit sourceÂ | edit] ^ Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Development Plan 2004 - 2010 ^ Progress report on the Dun Laoghaire Development Plan
