Clonturk (Irish: Cluain Tuirc) is an area on the Northside of Dublin, in Ireland. It is located in the south of the suburb of Drumcondra, just north of the River Tolka, but previously, Clonturk has been an alternative name for Drumcondra and the wider area. Clonturk lies within the Dublin 9 postal district.
Drumcondra was previously part of the civil parish of Clonturk which translates from the Irish as "Meadow of the Swine".
Clonturk House on Ormond Road was built in 1830 by the then City Architect, as a gentleman’s residence and was extensively renovated in 1880 and given its Georgian frontage. For a number of years until 1960 Clonturk House was run by the Presbyterian Church which gave accommodation to girls attending school in Dublin both as fee-paying and on a subsidised basis. Until 2009 it was a home for blind men, run by the Rosminians order. The balustrade which now forms its boundary came from the original Carlisle Bridge and was moved there when this structure was replaced by the present O'Connell Bridge.
