About our home

We live in a large 5 bedroom bright family home in a quiet street in Dublin's exclusive seaside village of Dalkey. We have just finished a big renovation job on our house and it is now open plan with all new furniture and appliances. The garden is south facing so gets lots of sun and has a table and outdoor seating for up to 10 people. There is a great trampoline guaranteed to keep the children happy in the back garden.

There is an open dining room / kitchen which also opens out onto the back dining area and garden. We also have a comfortable living room, downstairs toilet and children's playroom with their own TV. On the first floor there is a master bedroom with ensuite, girls bedroom with bunk bed and trundle roll out bed and boys bedroom with bunkbed. There is also a double guest bedroom and family bathroom. The front first floor bedrooms enjoy some nice ocean views. On the 2nd floor there is another bedroom with more beautiful views across Dublin. We have fast wifi all over the house.

The street we live on is a quiet residential area and the house has off street parking for 2 cars. It is a 5 minute walk into the village of Dalkey which is a fantastic heritage village with great shops (including some gourmet stores) restaurants, Irish bars, post office, bank, cafes, pharmacies, florists and churches. We are about a 10 minute walk from beautiful Killiney Hill which is a spectacular place for going for walks and sightseeing out across Dublin Bay and city. There are also 2 beaches and 2 playgrounds within walking distance. Dalkey is known for many famous Irish people who live here.

We are also a 5 minute walk to the local DART train station which takes you into Dublin city centre in half an hour along a beautiful coastal train trip. Dublin airport, with it's extensive flight connections, is a 40 minute drive and there is also a comfortable inexpensive and direct aircoach bus with free wifi and air conditioning.

Dalkey is a half hour drive to the beautiful county of Wicklow which is full of amazing walks, national parks, hills and glorioius Irish countryside. There are also lots of great golf courses and beaches 15-60 minutes drive of Dalkey. This is truly a great base if you are visiting Ireland.

And of course Dublin city and Ireland itself is renowned for it's culture, friendliness and great bars.
