NOW SEEKING SUMMER 2019 EXCHANGE- Large(260 Sq M) beautiful historic house in Dublin near sea and all amenities - 2-3 weeks for July/early August 2019

NOW SEEKING FOR SUMMER 2019. LARGE HISTORIC AND NEWLY RENOVATED HOUSE NEAR COAST IN DUBLIN, IRELAND - NO CAR REQUIRED AS CONVENIENT TO PUBLIC TRANSPORT, ETC. PREFERENCE FOR FRANCE BUT OPEN TO ANY OFFERS!!

Hello Friend,

It is rare that you get an opportunity to have the best of all worlds - a large luxurious home just a few minutes walk from some of Ireland's most scenic coastline and only a few hundred metres from an historic town centre -but also located within one of Europe's most vibrant, welcoming and culturally attractive capitals. Sailing? a trip to the Wicklow mountains? a short walk to the beach? catching a Metro line to the National Museum? or relaxing in our secluded garden? Travel to us on your yacht and dock in the local Marina? Have drink in an Irish pub and walk home? Its is all possible from here!!!

NOTE - LOOKING NOW for 3 WEEKS EXCHANGE DURING JULY OR EARLY AUGUST 2019 IN FRANCE.

Our home is a fabulous early 20th century Edwardian red brick house. It is spacious (240 square metres/ 2600 square feet), bright and with very tall ceilings (3.4M!!). It was fully modernised in 2013 and so offers all modern conveniences - for example, completely new bathrooms with power showers, high speed Internet access (with WIFI coverage), a brand new kitchen with an American fridge, new appliances, microwave etc.

We are located in a quiet upscale residential cul de sac with but just a few yards from the historic town centre of Dun Laoghaire and so convenient to shopping and all amenities - restaurants, cafes, library, bars, food shops, galleries, etc. Our house is a short stroll of only 300 metres to the seafront - and only a 15 min walk to Sandycove beach. We also have excellent access to public transportation. We are also less than a 5 minute walk to the Glasthule/Sandycove DART station that will take you to Dublin City Centre in 15 minutes via the city's metro system. Dun Laoghaire is famous for its giant piers (when built in the early 1800s - they were the largest manmade habour in the world) and for its fabulous harbour - which is still a working Port and Ireland's leading centre for boating (our town has 4 yacht clubs and a municipal marina!). And I almost forgot to mention that we are less than 50 metres from one of Dublin's best Victorian parks - The People's Park - with its fountains, tearooms and playground. Our beautiful surroundings have also made us one of Ireland's main centres for English language schools.

Dun Laoghaire is located an area of rugged coastline, with seaside villages such as Bullock Harbour and Dalkey, Killiney Beach, historic Monkstown and hills such as Dalkey hill. It is also overlooked by the magnificent Wicklow Mountains - great for hiking or scenic drives. It has also long been home to some of Ireland's most famous celebrities - for example, it has close associations with writers such as James Joyce and Beckett (the Joyce Tower Museum are a 15 minute walk away). More recently, Enya, Bono, Bob Geldof, Sinead O'Connor, Chris DeBurgh and Moya Brennan (Clannad) are some of the past and current residents of our area.

We can leave you our car seats - although we would not propose exchanging cars. We do however have 4 bicycles (2 children and 2 adults) that we could arrange to lend you. The area is so convenient that a car isn't unnecessary unless you wish to visit rural areas of Ireland, in which case rental cars are available locally

Our accommodation includes:

A. 4 spacious bedrooms
Bedroom 1: A Kingsize bed, a walk-in closet and an ensuite bathroom/shower,
Bedroom 2 : A Queen size bed with ensuite bathroom/shower
Bedroom 3: One with double bed
Bedroom 4: 2 twin beds

B. 2 Bathrooms:
A large brand new family bathroom with bath, power shower, etc
A convenient toilet/washbasin on the ground floor

C. Kitchen: A brand new kitchen with oak countertops and brand new appliances - than doubles as an informal family dining area.

D. A large formal dining room with the original fireplace in place

E. A large living/reception room with beautiful bright bay windows.

F. For the kids, a fun playroom - that opens out onto our back garden - which is fully enclosed, includes a trampoline and is very private.

G. A dedicated utility room - with new washer and dryer

H Large spacious Hallways with Victorian tiles

As for us, we're a friendly young Irish professional couple - who work in the corporate world- with 3 lovely (and well-behaved) children. We take care of our own and other people's property! We have travelled internationally and lived abroad!! We look forward to meeting you!!!

Take Care
Gareth and Breda

Our Neighbourhood

Nearest Airport: Dublin - 15km

Our house is set on a cul de sac just a few yards from the heart of historic Dun Laoghaire -one of Dublin's most upscale seaside suburbs - with ready access(10 min walk) to grocery stores, pharmacies, restaurants, bars, bookshops, maritime museum, etc.

DART (mass transit Station of Sandycove/Glasthule) is ~3 minute walk

We are about 300 metres from the sea - with lovely scenic walks and the famous Dun Laoghaire pier - once the largest manmade harbour in the world.

Sandycove beach is a mere 15-20 minute walk away and we are across the road from the People's Park - one of Ireland's finest Victorian town parks with its fountain, tearooms and playground. And Dublin City centre is just a 15-20 minutes metro ride away Sandycove/Glasthule Dart Station.

With 4 yacht clubs and a marina - our neighbourhood also lays claim to being one of the best centres for sailing in Ireland. And it also has rich associations with Dublin's writers - with the James Joyce Tower and Museum also within a 20 minute walk. We love living here!!!
