About our home

Our house, built in 1910 is located 5 minutes from Sandymount village and 5 minutes from Sandymount beach. The picturesque village has a lovely park, shops, restaurants, coffee shops, pubs and churches. Sandymount has its own DART (electric train system) with trains every 15 minutes which take you into the city centre in 7 minutes. Once there all cultural, tourist and shopping amenities are readily accessible. Our house, which sleeps 6/7, has just been refurbished and extended and is extremely spacious and well laid out. There are two linked reception rooms with direct access to the garden and also to a south facing conservatory. The contemporary designer kitchen has everything that you could need and opens into a beautiful light filled dining space with lovely views of the garden. This space is now linked through a light filled walkway to our new garden room, home office and guest bedroom suite. The guest suite has been designed for multiuses ( yoga, quiet reading, parties) and has a walled king size bed and ensuite bathroom. It also has a small annex room which we use when our grandchild comes to stay. Upstairs three of the original four bedrooms have been converted to a master bedroom suite with a walk in dressing room and ensuite bathroom. The fourth bedroom is used as an upstairs sitting room and has an extremely comfortable sofa bed. There is also a third bathroom adjacent.
There is a wonderful, private back garden which we are having relandscaped at present and the front driveway has off street parking.
The area is quiet, safe and very friendly.

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

Buzzy restaurants
Five minutes from the house, Sandymount village has five reasonably price neighbourhood restaurants. Since we are just 15 minutes drive from the city centre you will also have easy access to all that the city has to offer
Cool bars
'Going to the pub' is probably the most common and easy going way of socialising in Ireland. Sandymount village has three, where you will also find food and often music.
Cozy cafés
Coffee and cake is available from all the restaurants and pubs and there are also two dedicated cafes to choose from.
Retail therapy
Dublin city and its environs has all the variety and quality of shopping that you would expect from a contemporary European capital city.
Bit of culture
Extract from Dublin tourism: ' Famous for its easy going charm and cultural heritage, Dublin is also the capital of The Craic (pronounce 'crack'), the art of life. Famous Dublin sons such as writers Oscar Wilde, James Joyce and Jonathan Swift had it, playwright Samuel Beckett had it, and so have more contemporary cultural ambassadors such as U2. The city is steeped in rich history, starting with the Vikings laying its first streets. Through the centuries, The Craic and an unruly artistic streak have helped shape Dublin into what it is now: A vibrant capital that moves at an easy going pace.
Walks in the park
Because it is a coastal village, we have wonderful walks available directly from our house - for example there is a lovely two hour walk through a nature reserve with wonderful views of the sea and beach all the way. For those who want a short morning or evening stroll by the sea just walk to the end of our street.
Spot of exercise
Walking, swimming, cycling, golfing, fishing, horse riding, tennis all readily available
Day tripping
Within a one hour drive there are wonderful destinations such as Glendalough, the renowned medieval monastic settlement founded in the 6th century.
