Ballsbridge was the final home of the legendary novelist and playwright Brendan Behan (1923-1964), who wrote The Quare Fellow and Borstal Boy.
A mere stroll from the Restaurant is Dublin's famous Herbert Park. The park is named after Sydney Herbert, father of the Earl of Pembroke, who donated the park to the citizens of Dublin city in 1903. There are some very enjoyable walk-ways through the Park, by the pleasant pond, the extensive lawn areas and the well groomed flower beds.
Football and Rugby fans may be interested in knowing that Lansdowne Road Stadium is 5 minutes walk from the Restaurant. The rather dated ground generates one of the best atmospheres of any sports stadium, despite the fact it is on its last legs. The ground is due to be replaced by an 80,000 capacity stadium in the west of Dublin in 2005.A short stroll from the restaurant door, the Royal Dublin Society (RDS) was founded in 1731 to promote the development of agriculture, arts, science and industry in Ireland. Having moved to a 15 acre site in Ballsbridge in 1879, the grounds have now increased to 40 acres with 10 multi-purpose exhibition halls, the RDS stadium, meeting rooms, bars, restaurants and over 2,000 car parking spaces. Many popular bands and groups use this venue when playing in Ireland.
Hotels in the immediate area include The Herbert Park Hotel, Bewleys Hotel, The Lansdowne Hotel, The Schoolhouse Hotel, Clayton Hotel Burlington Road and The Shelbourne Hotel.
