About our home

Our home is fairly modern and stands on an acre of landscaped garden. We love the fact that we are completely rural with cows grazing in the fields surrounding the house but yet we are a short drive to the city of Dublin. Our neighbourhood is very friendly and full of small farmers. We keep 5 ponies at our neighbours as our kids compete at a high level so there is a possibility to ride and use our ponies. We also have a 7.5 ton horse lorry which is set out as camper van and this can be used too if you have the license to drive it. The area is lovely for walks and exploring and we have a huge deck out the back for chilling and BBQs. The house has wifi and all mod cons and is very comfortable. We have 2 cars and visiting family can use one. Dublin city is a wonderful city full of character with great restaurants, bars, theatre and culture and is only 20 minutes drive away so you have the best of all worlds. A rural peaceful retreat and lots of action on your doorstep. We can provide you with a list of lots of things to do and see.
