Our home

My home is a 1-bed apartment situated in an apartment complex, just 3 miles from Dublin city centre. It is a quiet, secure complex consisting of duplex apartments and houses, within walking distance of local shops, parks, restaurants, beach and gym.
My apartment has a sea view with a balcony/patio and public transport is just 5 minutes walk away with buses going into the city every 10-15 mins. There is also a frequent train service (known as 'The Dart')
which brings you into Dublin city and beyond.
The apartment itself sleeps 2 people, with a double-bed in the bedroom and a double-bed/sofa-bed in the lounge. Though small, it very compact and cosy.
Travelling north, one can go by car or train to Howth where there are spectacular views of the Dublin Bay or spend an afternoon walking along the cliff path. Travelling South, you can take the train, and head off along the east coast.
St Anne's Park is within walking distance and here you can take a tour of what was once the home of a member of the Guinness family. A truly beautiful oasis to explore. Here too, at the weekend you will find a farmer's market where there are all sorts of home-made/grown foods.
Dublin is a modern vibrant city with lots to do and see and where events are happening on an ongoing basis. From Dublin there are coach tours with organised trips to the other major cities in the country - i.e Cork, Belfast and Galway.
