Clontarf, a residential suburb on the Redcliffe peninsula, is immediately west of Woody Point and is the first suburb reached after crossing the Hornibrook Highway. It is 25 km north of central Brisbane.

Clontarf was the name of two of the numerous 'estate' subdivisions on the peninsula in the 1880s. Cowes and Belvidere estates, overlooking the present day Clontarf Beach, were also sold. These estates were less successful than others at Redcliffe and Woody Point, and the area's development did not occur until World War II.
