Map of Foxrock, South of Dublin, adjacent to Dean's Grange and Newtownpark Avenue.
Foxrock (Carraig an tSionnaigh in Irish) is a suburb, formerly a separate village, in Dublin, Ireland, in Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown, in postal district Dublin 18.
It is known as a middle and upper middle class area with the majority of residents being professional people such as lawyers, engineers and businessmen. Most houses in the immediate vicinity of Foxrock Village usually exceed the one million euro price mark and are large detached homes on varying amounts of land, although housing in the wider Foxrock area is more typical of other well-off parts of suburban Dublin. The village of Foxrock is famous for being the only village in the Republic of Ireland without a pub.
Foxrock has a number of primary schools. It has one secondary school - the fee-paying Loreto Convent, Foxrock for girls. Many secondary students living in Foxrock go to fee-paying schools elsewhere on the southside of Dublin.
In recent years, with the enormous growth in the housing market in Ireland, the area has seen much building development, with the large plots of land around some houses being subdivided for development.
The railway line from Dublin Harcourt Street to Bray formerly passed through Foxrock. Although the route has now been reopened as the Green Line of the Luas light rail system, it currently terminates at Sandyford, some 3 km short of Foxrock. There are plans to extend the line.
Samuel Beckett grew up on an estate in Foxrock.
