HOUSE-HUNTING? HERE are five properties in the Dun Laoghaire area that are open for viewing this weekend.

The area: A walk on the Dun Laoghaire promenade is central to life in the area – taking in the sea air and then stopping for an ice-cream at Teddy’s is a time-honoured tradition here. Locals enjoy a great outdoor market and the peaceful surrounds of the People’s Park, as well as an abundance of festivals, including the annual Book Festival and several regattas in the bay.

Water sports are popular and a dip in the Forty Foot is almost mandatory. A theatre, multiplex cinema, shopping, restaurants and bars are all on the doorstep and Dart and bus services make the city very accessible.
