The Dublin - Rosslare railway line also passes through the village and adjoins the site. Since the extension of the N11 dual-carriageway from Dublin to within 5 km of the village, it has been undergoing rapid growth, attracting people commuting to Dublin.
Glenealy is classified as a large Village in the County Development plan 2016 – 2022.
