Where is it?


We live about 100 mtrs from the beach and from our home we can take some lovely walks without having to get into the car. The nearest Blue Flag beach at Killiney is 10 minutes walk away. There is a large park, Shanganagh Park with a playground and lots of space which is lovely for a quick local walk, beside this is the tennis club which is open to non members and which runs a series of tennis camps for children in the Summer.

We are about 1 km from Shankill village which has a chemist, grocery store, pub, coffee shop, hair dresser etc. Further afield in Dun Laoghaire and Bray you can enjoy a greater choice of restaurants, theatres, cinemas, markets, shops and pier walks as well as historic places to visit.

We are located in South County Dublin, or the border of Co Wicklow. We are 5 minutes walk from Shankill train station where you can take the train into Dublin City Centre in 45 minutes. When you have had enough of the delights of Dublin you can jump in the car and in 15 minutes you can be in the beautiful Dublin Mountains with lots of waymarked trails and routes to explore. The wilder Wicklow Mountains are only a short distance further away. Some local sites not to be missed are Powerscourt Domain, Glendalough and Bray Head. See for further information.
