In the Irish language, ‘leamhcán’ means ‘place of the elm trees’. The name probably comes from a people that travelled by river, as Lucan is the first place that elm trees are encountered if travelling inland from the Liffey. There is a suggestion that an ancient road that linked into the legendary Tara network ran through what is now modern Lucan village, continuing up the hill towards Esker Cemetery. Lucan House, built around 1770 has a circular ground floor dining room, that is said to have been an inspiration for the Oval Office of the White House. The decorative plasterwork was carried out by Michael Stapleton. Lucan House is currently the private residence of the Italian ambassador to Ireland. The discovery of a sulphurous spa in Lucan in 1758 brought the district into prominence, and it became a mecca for weekend parties from Dublin and the surrounding countryside. Modern Lucan is a cute village with lots of character, aided by its proximity to the river, many trees and stone walls.
