Investigators said the discovery was made as part of a planned ‘day of action’ in the area.
The gun and drugs were found at a house in the Bawnlea area. A stolen motorcycle was also discovered.
Gardaí said a man in his late teens was arrested and has been charged in connection with the investigation.
He is due to appear before a sitting of Dublin District Court this morning.
