It is hardly “underground” anywhere, but it is in a cutting due to local objections (nothing new!) and gradients. Lord Cloncurry, who owned Maretimo House in Blackrock, was a big objector and there was another in Kingstown. Perhaps the confusion arises because Dublin – Kingstown was Ireland’s first railway (1834) I’ve also heard it described as one of Europe’s earliest commuter lines.
