About our home

We built our home and moved in in 2002. We were attracted by the beautiful view from the house and the space that was around us but also the proximity to urban areas - Dublin City and South Dublin suburbs and Enniskerry Village. The land around the house runs down to Knocksink Forest Park, where you can walk along the river to Enniskerry village. We are about 10 minutes from Powerscourt House and Gardens, where the new Ritz Carlton was built 5 years ago and a short drive to Powerscourt Waterfall - both of these attractions are among of the most visited in Ireland. 10 minutes by car takes to you the LUAS - the Dublin urban rail system, where it will take 30 minutes to get you to the centre of Dublin at St Stephens green.
