Once a popular holiday destination for Dubliners in the pre-Celtic Tiger era, Bettystown has seen a resurgence in recent years, with a fine selection of eateries and bars including Relish, Reddan’s Bar and B&B, Bistro BT and also in Laytown the excellent Nans.
Bettystown is also well served by a number of other amenities including Chinese takeaways and a fitness and leisure centre, as well as a large Tesco Superstore. Locals are also looking forward to the construction of a new Aldi store on the Laytown seafront, which has been granted planning.
Bettystown is one of the better-served commuter towns with excellent road and rail links to the city centre.
The M1 is a short distance from Bettystown and will take a commuter into the city in 35-50 minutes by car.
Matthews Coaches service will drop Bettystown commuters into Cathal Brugha street each morning with several morning departures.
The Belfast train line to Dublin also runs through Laytown with plans in the pipeline to open a new station at Bettystown
