4 of a kind: Coastal homes for seaside living

From a West Cork hideaway to a stunner in Malahide.

IRELAND’S COASTAL AREAS are some of the prettiest in the world. Whether you’re near Dublin, or down on the Wild Atlantic Way, the sea views here are something to be savoured.

With that in mind, here are four seaside homes on the market right now, all of them bungalows nestled in the Irish countryside.

Malahide, Co Dublin

Sitting on 1.3 acres of professionally designed lawns, Aillebrack is a stunning home that would suit a large family. With four bedrooms and a large garage to the rear, it has loads of space, as well as an elegant sunroom to enjoy the sunshine.

Aillebrack is less than five minutes to the beach at Portmarnock by car, and Malahide village is a bustling, charming spot with plenty of shops, schools and community services.

Aillebrack is on sale for €1,250,000.
