"A fantastic vacation home"
We loved staying at this property. We had plenty of room for 7 adults and 4 teens/kids to spread out. The views are sensational. 3 working gas fire places were so nice to have going in the evenings and mornings. We enjoyed grilling on the patio, dining outside and inside - the formal dining room fits 10 comfortably. The kitchen/dining room are well-equipped with stem ware, glasses, silver and even a wine decanter. The gardens are very beautiful and well-maintained.
The town of Dalkey is post-card charming and just a leisurely stroll away. The town has butchers, bakeries, grocery, wine shops, pubs (Finnegans was a favorite) and many great restaurants. The train station is on the edge of town and also easy to walk to. Cabs are available as well. Very short train ride to Dublin city center.
Orla, our host, was exceptional. She shopped for us ahead of time, arranged all of our transportation and organized day trips. She is first-class.
We cannot recommend this property enough and hope we will be able to visit again soon.
