About our home

Our Home is a 300M large Architect Designed House with Stables on 4.5 acres, with a garden with ample lawn and patio area for BBQ's. Our Gardiner tends the garden area. The house was completed in 2001 and is home to Denise & myself,our six children, and our stable resident pets which include, 3 dogs, a cat and our pony. There is oak wood panelling on the floors and a Chalon kitchen which is at the heart of our home with an Aga cooker. The home is very cosy and comfortable, yet has all the modern conveniences including cable TV and high speed internet, which enables us to work from home when convenient. There is ample parking for guests and parties. The Barn has been converted to serve as a gym/play area. The house has its own quite charm and peaceful space yet is ideal for family life, having 3 boys - football and rugby areas abound, while there is also plenty of space for our daughter's pony.


More about us

  1. Denise my wife and myself Francis have six children aged 15 to 3. Denise is a former Business Director and now a full time Mum. I am a lawyer entrepreneur and work in the Media business. Our eldest daughter has a transition year starting in Aug. 2011 and we would love to exchange our home with a family in the South of France for one year. We really enjoy living in Tara - it is quite and peaceful yet neither our children nor ourselves are ever bored, with large towns close by and Dublin being 40 minutes away, yet the lure and charm of the countryside, living on a Beef & Dairy Farm beside Denise's parents is we believe a perfect place to unwind.

Where is it?


Ideally situated in the famous and picturesque area of Skryne and Tara, where the High Kings of Ireland resided. There is easy access to famous historical sites such as world heritage mesolithic tombs at "Newgrange" which pre-date the Pyramids, The "Battle of The Boyne site" and Tara itself. We are close to excellent shopping centres such as Navan 8km, Blanchardstown 15km and Ashbourne 15km. For Teenagers there are a number of sports clubs in the area including tennis, swimming (National Acquatic Centre - 18km),gaelic, soccer and rugby. Field sports such as shooting, hunting and fishing are available locally as is golf, tennis and the area is famed for its' hill and countryside walks. One of the most famous old scenic pubs in Ireland which is featured in the Guinness Advertisement "O'Connells" is within 200 yards of our home and a modern pub, Fox's with Sky TV is 150 yards away - all well out of ear-shot as our home is certainly situated in a rural setting. Yet we are only 40 mins. drive from Dublin city centre and 30 mins. drive from Dublin airport.
