Ranelagh is situated south of Dublin city centre and the Grand Canal, between Rathmines to the West and Donnybrook to the East. Clonskeagh and Milltown lie further South, along the Dodder River, via the Sandford Road. It is served by the Luas Green Line, stopping at Ranelagh and Beechwood, and by many bus routes. It is within walking distance of the Dart line at Lansdowne Road and Grand Canal Dock.
Milltown, another suburb located on the Southside of Dublin
is marked by a spectacular 19th century railway bridge across the river, which was part of the Harcourt Street railway line which ran from Harcourt Street to Bray.
The bridge was re-opened for the Luas which runs from Stephen's Green to Sandyford. This bridge, and sometimes the area immediately surrounding it, became known informally as the 'Nine Arches'.
