Clonliffe is an area of North Dublin, Ireland, between Ballybough and Drumcondra.

Clonliffe Road is the wide linking thoroughfare nearly a mile long forming the central artery. There is an entrance at the Drumcondra end, to Holy Cross College, and to the grounds of the residence of the Archbishop of Dublin.

The main access to Croke Park GAA sports ground is from Jones Road, the principal turn off on the south side of Clonliffe Road. In the mid-19th century, it was proposed [clarification needed] that a university be located at Clonliffe.[1]
