As part of our series, Livin Dublin, we've teamed up with AIB to bring you some of the most up-and-coming areas of Dublin to buy a first home.

Artane... It's the childhood home of a surprising amount of Irish celebrities (Brendan Gleeson, Brian McFadden and U2's Larry Mullen to name a few), and the Northside suburb makes a good case for settling down in the area, from its central location to the great amenities it has to offer. Here are 7 reasons why you should consider moving to Artane.

(Psst! Make sure you try AIB's handy mortgage calculator here to find out how much you're eligible to borrow!)

1. There are some great little pubs in the area

The Roundabout and The Horse and Hound are both in the neighbourhood plus you've got so many more pubs nearby in Raheny, Clontarf and beyond. The Beachcomber, Harry Byrne's, The Manhattan - the list goes on.

4. Location, location, location

The great thing about this Dublin 5 suburb is that it's close to Dublin city centre while still having a relaxed neighbourhood feel. It's a 15-minute drive from town or you can hop on the bus and be there in half an hour. As well as that, it's only 15 minutes away from Dublin Airport by car.

Artane Roundabout is served by over 10 different bus routes and nearby, you’ve also got Harmonstown and Killester DART stations which will get you into Dublin city centre in roughly 15 minutes.

5. The Goblet

Fancy some live music, good grub and a creamy pint? The Goblet in the heart of Artane is always buzzing with a live DJ every Saturday night and a delicious pub grub menu that includes all-day brekkies, burgers, chicken wings and nachos. There's also an a la carte menu that includes a creamy seafood chowder to enjoy alongside your pint - now that's real comfort food.

7. There's plenty of green spaces nearby

If golf is your thing then Clontarf Golf Club is practically on your doorstep. If it's not, you're a five-minute drive or a 20-minute walk from St Anne's Park - perfect for a day out and a wander through the rose garden.
