Beaches, schools and great transport links: Explore these family-friendly homes in north Dublin

Semple Woods combines village living with an easy city commute.

GREEN SPACE, LOCAL amenities and great transport links: it’s rare to find a location that combines all three, but Donabate ticks every box.

Located in north Dublin close to some of the county’s best beaches, the village is a haven from hectic city life, without being far away from the action.

It’s also the home of Semple Woods, a new development from Glenveagh Homes. With a limited number of three-bedroom, four-bedroom semi-detached and five-bedroom detached properties currently available, the development and location would be ideal for a growing family.

At Semple Woods, you’ll live just a seven minute walk from Donabate village, putting you close to supermarkets, restaurants and other local amenities. As well as the local beaches, there are five excellent golf clubs in the area, plus a wide range of sport, shopping and leisure facilities in nearby Swords, Malahide and Skerries.

Each of the homes currently available features a spacious kitchen/dining area overlooking the generous rear garden. There’s parking for two cars to the front, and plenty of green space around the development too. All homes at Semple Woods are A-rated for energy, with high levels of insulation and air tightness. 

House-hunters can discover the development for themselves with a private viewing of the brand new four-bedroom showhome at Semple Woods.

The contemporary interior was created by Ventura Design, and the showhome includes furniture and accessories from Ventura’s sister company, V2Living. “We wanted to create a home that felt fresh, functional yet cosy to live in,” says Ventura’s creative director, Arlene McIntyre .
