Our home

This is a spacious 2.500 square ft dormer bungalow with a separate studio, in the country, 28 miles south of Dublin (30 mins drive). There are 4 bedrooms, 3 of them en-suite and a total of 4 Shower(+1 Bath)rooms in the house+1 WC, 1 dining room, 2 living rooms and a nice porch with a BBQ to dine outside for those warm Summer evenings where rain shelter may be required, overlooking the forest. The separate studio also sleeps 3 and has a shower room. In total you can accomodate 12 comfortably and more.
There are 2 cars (1 electric+1 diesel), but due to insurance restrictions cannot be used by anyone other than the owner, but we could check with insurance if this can be changed for a short period of time.

We also have another quiet 3 bed holiday property near Valencia, Spain with swimming pool. See separate pictures.
