About our home
Our family home was completely renovated in 2008. It is a 4 bedroom semi detached house in the leafy Dublin suburb of Raheny. Restaurants, library, shops are a short stroll away. 5 minute walk to the bus stop and 10 minutes to the dart (main Dublin commuter train line), which can have you in Dublin city centre in 11 minutes, and heading in the other direction you can be in the beautiful seaside fishing villages of Howth or Malahide in 10 minutes.
Coastal promenade is a 5 minute walk away.
Downstairs: a large bright kitchen dining area with breakfast bar and dining table that seats 8, lounge room (Netflix, >100 channels), large bathroom with shower, utility room.
Upstairs: main bedroom (en-suite with shower), large bedroom (contains 2 single beds), small bedroom (currently contains cot, can contain pull out double bed), large bright attic conversion room, main bathroom (with bath and shower)
Outside: large enclosed back garden, with patio, bbq and outdoor seating, apple trees that are perfectly spaced to hang a hammock between them. Shed containing bikes.
Our boys are sports mad so there are basketball hoops, footballs etc. And right beside us is a field where local kids play ball. There are also lots of kids camps run in our neighbourhood.
Equipped for kids
More about us
We're a couple with 3 boys - aged 7, 4 and newborn
Vinnie works as a foreign exchange trader, and I am an actuary (but off on maternity leave at the moment)
We would like to do a swap in summer 2016, ideally to the U.S. Or Canada, and are open to other swaps at other times of the year
McHughs is the local restaurant, there are numerous pub grub spots, also Mint Cottage for Pakistani/Indian, Mulinos for pizza/pasta. The buzzing suburb of Clontarf is close by, with more restaurants than I can mention. Papillon tapas bar with a view out over the coastal promenade is my favourite.
Raheny is a really settled village suburb, with a real mix of bars: the Cedars is the local, where the three generations often meet for drinks - it's all about the chat, they would want to know who you are, no music or food here! But then there's 3 pubs in the village that show sports, serve food, and have bands playing numerous nights a week.
Kennedys and Perkilicious are the village coffee shops. Or walk through St Anne's park and reward yourself with some cake or a delicious salad in Olives.
Raheny village has all the necessities - a supermarket, bakery(delicious!), butchers, pharmacies etc. Dublin city centre is just a short hop on the bus/train away.
Bit of culture
Dublin is bursting with museums, galleries, theatres - all easily accessible on public transport
Walks in the park
St Anne's park is a short walk away - a great huge park with playground, pond, tennis courts, pitch and putt, beautiful walkways
Spot of exercise
St Anne's park, coastal promenade walkway is 5 minutes away and provides a walkway that stretches the entire Dublin coastline, from Howth to Bray, gym in villages allows short memberships or pay as you go.
The local train station can bring you further north to Howth or Malahide, or south to dun laoighaoire, killiney, Dalkey.
