Spacious family home, South Dublin, close to mountains, sea and city. Summer 2019 booked, but open to offers for Winter 2019 and 2020.

Our bright, spacious family home is 105 years old but fully modernised to a high standard. It is located south of Dublin city centre in a lovely suburb, our location makes for very easy access to the city, the sea, the mountains and the countryside beyond. Our large family car is also available during the exchange as Dublin is a great base for touring other areas of Ireland.
We have 2 wonderful parks, one with a castle, just metres from our house. The beautiful Dublin/Wicklow mountains are just 10 mins drive, with a wealth of activities including hiking and biking. We are on a direct bus route to the city centre (4k), with all the attractions of a vibrant capital city. We are also within easy reach of the sea, beautiful Dun Laoghaire and Sandycove are just 10k, with the long sandy beaches of Brittas Bay only 40 mins by car. We live 2k from Dublin's largest shopping centre, Dundrum, but also have small local shops within minutes walk.
