The Belfield Area

Since UCD's relocation to Belfield in the 1960s, the university has been the main feature of this area of Dublin, providing the perfect environment for students to study, relax, and have fun. The extensive services available at UCD, along with amenities such as sports facilities, a grocery store, and pharmacy make Belfield a veritable "one stop shop" for the students who live and study at the university. A 15-minute walk to the east of Belfield offers an array of cafes and shops that students and visitors can visit if they wish to further explore the immediate area outside of the campus.
