  • Description


    We are a family of 4 - husband, wife and 2 small boys - living on a farm just south west of Dublin. It is a mixed farm with cattle, sheep and horses. We rent out apartments here, so there is always a lot going on and plenty of people around! It is a social place and has a real community feel. We are only 15 miles from Dublin and there is a regular bus / tram service into the city centre.
