House in Terenure, Dublin 6, Ireland

 
We live in a lovely neighbourhood 5km from the city centre in a quiet suburb of Dublin. Our house has five bedrooms: Bedroom 1 has 1 double bed; Bedroom 2 has 2 single beds; Bedroom 3 has 1 single bed; Bedroom 4 has 1 single bed; Bedroom 5 has 1 double bed. Bedroom 5 has a connecting shower room/WC. On the ground floor there is also a separate WC. There is a Computer, X-box, a Play-Station and cable TV. The games room also has cable TV, a snooker/pool table and a darts board. In the back garden there is a Trampoline and a patio area with barbeque set. Our family is very busy with five boys, but who are also very well-behaved.
Terenure is a quiet place with many small shops and a very good choice of local restaurants. It has local banks, supermarkets, delicatessens, pubs, butchers, bakeries, pharmacies, cafes all of which are within walking distance of our house. Other local amenities are within 1km (walking distance) such as the local park (Bushy Park) which has football pitches, tennis courts, skateboard arena playground and lake. Also close by is the historic “Rathfarnham Castle” which was built in 1582. See www.heritageireland.ie/en/Dublin/RathfarnhamCastle for further details.
There is also a larger beautiful park within 4km (Marlay Park) which has a historic house, 9-hole public golf course, tennis courts, large playground and model railway which gives short train rides for children.
If you like shopping, one of the largest retail shopping centres in Europe, Dundrum Town Centre http://www.dundrum.ie/info.asp is only 4km drive/bus. Here you will find Restaurants, a Multi screen Cinema and a Theatre as well as of course many, many shops.
Terenure is very well served by public transport with buses from Terenure to the city centre every few minutes. The 16A bus comes close to our house directly from Dublin Airport! See http://www.dublinbus.ie/home/ for further details of all bus services.
Dublin City has many varied and interesting sights with a vibrant social scene, plenty of great restaurants and shops and music/comedy venues. Some of the pubs and hotels have excellent Irish traditional music sessions also, which are well worth a visit. Ireland is famed for its landscape as well as its people and not too far away from (easily accessible by car/bus/train) Dublin there are mountains to climb/rivers to fish and historic castles to explore.
