Our home

Our relaxed family home is a 3,800 square ft house enclosed by mature hedge rows and an electric gate. The family friendly garden is complete with a basketball hoop, trampoline, tennis net, badminton and swing set. The detached house has been recently completely modernised and extended the house with a mezzanine. We live in a small, quiet cul de sac with friendly neighbours consisting of young families and older couples.
The house has a large open plan kitchen and dining area with French doors that lead onto the front patio and garden. The kitchen is fully equipped with modern appliances including a steam oven, range cooker, water dispensing fridge-freezer, Nespresso coffee machine and microwave. There are two tables in the kitchen/dining area both of which seat 6 people comfortably.
On the ground floor, there is a family den with gas fireplace, TV/ DVD with connecting doors to the kid’s playroom. On the opposite side of the house there is a study/ piano room and a further living room with TV and log fireplace. Completing the ground floor is a utility room with washer /dryer facilities and bootroom with access to the back garden.
Upstairs are four bedrooms and a main bathroom with a Jacuzzi bath. The master bedroom has a king size bed and ensuite shower room. There is a children’s bedroom with two single beds. Another bedroom has a double bed and ensuite shower room with nice views overlooking large oak trees. The fourth bedroom is a guest room with a queen bed and ensuite shower room. This shower room connects via a glass bridge to the mezzanine floor with a full size ping-pong table overlooking the family den.

Who we are

  1. We are an easy going family of two adults and three girls - Lara 14, Keela 10 and Rhea 8. We both work in education, love to travel and open to new experiences during the school holidays. We are avid tennis players and enjoy outdoor activities and adventures. Tim is originally from the US, so we enjoy visiting different locations in the US and Europe.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Our lovely location is in a safe area yet only a 5 minute stroll to the seaside and a fishing harbour. A 10 minute walk will bring you to a small beach, swimming area (usually chilly water), and coastal cycling/ walking path.
Our house is a half mile from Dalkey village which is a coastal suburb located 13km (8 miles) south-east of Dublin City Centre. Dalkey is famous for the panoramic scenery, annual literary and lobster festivals, famous residents (Michele Obama had lunch with Bono in one of the pubs), international and Irish cuisine, pubs, market and village atmosphere. We’ve selected some interesting local sights and recommended places to eat and drink on the map. Next to our house is an indoor pool (which the public can use on a pay basis). Down the road is the Sandycove lawn tennis club, where we have a family membership.

Dublin city centre is easily accessible by car in 20 minutes. Alternatively a 10 minute walk will bring you to the metro train (DART) which takes 20 minutes to Dublin city center.
