About Sharon Plunkett
I have lived in Glenageary / Sandycove for the last 20 years and work in my own business. Originally from the seaside town of Bray just further along the coast I actually attended the private girls school almost across from this property, little did I know I would live so close one day!
Sharon Plunkett purchased this House in 1997
Why Sharon Plunkett chose Dublin
I just love the accessibility the property affords to both the city centre and quaint and picturesque Dalkey. The proximity to restaurants, leisure facilities and even simple walks along the sea make it the best location in the world!

It is ideally situated for walking to the beach, several villages and a main town, has spectacular views over the whole of Dublin Bay and is extremely well equipped to a very high standard. It a stones throw to a convenience store which is open until 10pm and there are two takeaways across the road also – ideal if you don’t feel like cooking on holidays! As it’s a family home it has everything you could need to make your vacation just perfect. It is worth noting that it is a "working home" however I rent it as I am away a lot for business. Therefore there are some personal items in two of the 4 bedrooms. The kitchen has some storage cupboard food items which guests can avail of during your stay.

We were competing in the DLVR and needed a crew house. The house was amazing. Fantastic facilities and very comfortable and much larger than expected.

Lovely house in a great location.
The owner was very helpful and overall we had a lovely stay!
Perfect for a family stay!
The house was exactly what we expected. The owner was so great and accommodating, patient with all our questions, and even had a few groceries waiting for us! Being so close to the DART station was perfect. The little pink binder had everything we needed. Thank you so much!
Thanks so much for this review it was a pleasure to have you as guests!
