Clontarf (Irish: Cluain Tarbh, meaning “meadow of the bull”) is a coastal suburb on the northside of Dublin, in Ireland. From its vantage point Dublin bay can be seen along with the iconic Dublin landmark of Poolbeg Power station.
Clontarf is most famous for the Battle of Clontarf in 1014, in which Brian Boru, High King of Ireland, defeated the Vikings of Dublin and their allies, the Irish of Leinster. This battle, which extended over a wide area, is seen as marking an end to the Irish-Viking Wars.
