It's about community. About lifestyle. This is a place for people to relax, exercise and enjoy the Knockrabo way of life.
The grounds of Knockrabo are very special, and feature numerous exquisite trees (some of which are over 200 years old). Children have climbed and played among these trees for many generations - as will many generations of Knockrabo residents to come. With the hectic bustle of everyday life, time is always at a premium. When it comes to crèche and exercise studio facilities, Knockrabo will save residents time by offering these facilities on their doorstep.
Knockrabo is built on the site of Mountanville House, a demesne that was the home of Henry Roe who is famous for having paid for the restoration of Christchurch Cathedral.The name Mountanville House was later changed to Knockrabo.
The attractive house of Knockrabo, which stood opposite Mount Anville Convent, was a Victorian house of exceptional quality being located on high ground overlooking much of South County Dublin and a rooftop belvedere was added in the 19th Century to take advantage of these views. The house became the home of Chief Baron Christopher Palles in 1885 until his death in 1920. Later it became a boarding school for girls that practiced the progressive methods of English educator, Charlotte Mason (1842-1923). The school closed in 1960 and the Ski Club of Ireland built their first ski slope there c.1966 until the mid '70's when it moved to Kilternan. In the early 80's Knockrabo was owned by Dublin Gas employees, it was subsequently sold to Bank of Ireland who used it as their sports club. The BOI sports club included a bowling lawn, grass tennis courts and Knockrabo itself was demolished in 1984 to make way for a new sports facility.
