Part of a suburban, residential estate, our home is ideally situated, walking distance from shops, local cafes and parks. Our house is only 3 minutes from the bus stop (served by 2 direct buses to Dublin city centre, approximately 30-40 minutes away depending on traffic, and 2 to the seaside town of Dun Laoghaire - an Irish word, no more than 20 minutes travel time.). It is half way between the sea and mountains, allowing you to enjoy days in both areas on your holiday, as well as venturing to the city to see the sights, and the countryside for culture and history. The area is safe and well lit and the neighbours are very friendly.
Our home itself is bright yellow, so easily spotted when you're first arriving, and has two floors. Downstairs we have a spacious sitting room with a TV, sofas and a real fire; a modern, open plan kitchen with all necessary facilities and a table seating 6-8 people with plenty of cooking space; a sunroom/living area at the back of the house with sofas and stereo; utility room with storage and washer/dryer facilities; a study/office with TV and seating, and a toilet is also located downstairs. Upstairs is the family bathroom, two single rooms and two double rooms, one ensuite. The house also has wifi and central heating throughout but does not require air conditioning.
We have a front garden with space to park cars and a large back garden, with doors leading from the sunroom onto a decked area, where there is a table and chairs and barbecuing facilities.
By either bus or car there are cinemas, shopping centres, outdoor markets, swimming pools, restaurants, cafes, bowling alley, arcade, gym, and local pubs within 15-20 minutes. Some of these can also be reached on foot in approximately 30 minutes or less.
The city train (know as the DART) is approximately 35 minutes walk or 10 minutes drive, which offers a stunning journey along the coast from one side of the city to the other. The tram (Luas) is about 25-30 minutes walk or less than ten minutes drive and is an alternative route to the city centre.
