= marks the location of this home
Phibsborough is an old suburb of Dublin City and an ideal location for exploring the city and the surrounding attractions. The area is well served by buses and connections to the city train network. Attractions within a short bus ride or walk include the Phoenix Park, Dublin Zoo, Trinity College Dublin, the National Museum and Croke Park. The National Botanic Gardens are within walking distance of the house.
Something about ourselves
Orla is a journalist currently working from home and Ken lectures on environmental management. We have four children, three girls aged 17, 11 and 9 and a boy aged 14. We have lived in Munster Street for the past 12 years and have very good neighbours here. We had our first, very successful exchange with a Parisian family in July 2012 and are now keen to visit France again!
