About our home

Our home is located in beautiful Skerries, a small fishing village by the sea located 30 minutes by train from Dublin. Often regarded as a well-hidden jewel, the village itself is very scenic with plenty of bars and restaurants - particularly down by the harbour. It's two stunning beaches - one sandy, one stoney - are ideal for swimming or a variety of watersports. During the summer months, long hours can be spent by the beach.

Skerries offers an exceptional environment for family life, with a wonderful array of local amenities, activities and clubs on offer. The public park at Ardgillan Castle offers beautiful walks with stunning sea views. The Public Parklands and Mills Complex in the town offer tours around a working windmill - one of two in the town.
Ideally located on the main train line to Dublin, the journey time is approx 30 mins to Dublin city centre with trains running frequently all week.
Our spacious, modern home is located in the centre of Skerries town, less than one minute’s walk from the beach. It consists of three bedrooms. Two are double rooms and one has a single bed which can be extended to accommodate 2 people. There are sea views from the main bedroom. We have a lovely, private back garden which has the sun all day long. Perfect for bbqs.
Use of the car can be considered.

As Skerries is only a 20 minute drive from Dublin airport, it is a great base for visiting other European countries while you're visiting.
