Monkstown is on the coast, between Blackrock and Dún Laoghaire. Monkstown has two churches, Saint Mary's Church of Ireland (1831) and Saint Patrick's Catholic Church (1866), both on Carrickbrennan Road. There is also the Friends Burial Ground (Quaker) located at Temple Hill just off Monkstown Road and Monkstown Castle, which was probably built in the 12th or 13th centuries.
Monkstown is also noted for its coastline, which is home to a number of historical buildings of the Victorian, Georgian and Edwardian periods. It also features a Martello Tower, located at Seapoint beach.
