Sharon and I have been in Dublin for a week on business. I’m covering for Ronan and Sharon’s been commuting down to Dell Cherrywood. We’re also scouting locations and seeing what it’s like to actually live here. The DART is 50 min from the Raheny station, bus-LUAS more like 1.5 hours. Maybe something better will materialize with a shorter commute.
The Raheny-Clontarf-Killester area definitely looks nice. Had some great Thai food in Raheny last night at Ruen Thai. They have a €22/person early bird special that includes a glass of wine, appetizers and choice of chicken and duck entrees. Duck! You’d never see that offered on a cheap prix fixe menu in the States. We loved the chicken entree, larb gai, and our waiter says only Thai normally order it. The duck was quite good, too.
I’ve sent off some emails to property owners to schedule viewings this weekend. No responses yet. Probably have to call.
