IRISH SEASIDE VACATION TOWNHOME

Skerries Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Townhome, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

A well situated townhome located in the Irish seaside community of Balbriggan, County Dublin. With easy access to transportation to all corners of Ireland, this 2 bedroom, 1 bath lovely townhome sleeps 4 and has all of the comforts of home. The townhome is nestled in a quaint fishing village which has nearby historical sites dating back to the 14th century. The name of the town in Irish is either Baile Bricin, meaning Town of the Small Trout, or Baile Brigin, meaning Town of the Small Hills. Balbriggan was originally a small fishing village where King William of Orange and his army set up their camp after the Battle of the Boyne in 1690. In 1920 the town was burned and looted by the 'Black and Tans' after a Royal Irish Constable was murdered during the 1916-21 War of Independence.

Vacationing in Balbriggan offers a unique opportunity to really get to know the people of Ireland. The neighbors are friendly and very helpful in making your stay a most memorable Irish holiday. You will be within walking distance of everything in town and only steps from the bus and the train which can take you wherever you desire. The airport is 20 minutes away and easily accessible by taxi or bus.

About Pam McMahon

My husband grew up in Balbriggan and has maintained a strong fondness for his hometown. We have visited Balbriggan many times over the last 40 years with our children, in-laws and friends.

Pam McMahon purchased this townhome in 1999

Why Pam McMahon chose Skerries

Balbriggan is my husband's hometown. Owning a townhome here has enabled us to frequently visit Balbriggan and see family and friends.

What makes this townhome unique

When we return to Balbriggan we enjoy going to the local pubs to see our old friends and experience the music and culture of a small Irish town.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you Pam. And yes we had a very good time. The townhouse was perfect for the three of us and then my daughter joined us for the last 3 days. She liked the place very much. She said you had great taste especially since she loves the theatre and she noticed your pictures from the movies by the stairs.

Girls Trip :)

  • 5 of 5
My friend and I take a girls trip every year and Ireland was our choice this time. We wanted to stay somewhere that would give us the small town feel and really get a sense of Irish living, but we also wanted to be close enough to all the wonderful sights/things Ireland has to offer :) this place was perfect! We stayed for one week and the weather was amazing, we are from Arizona (USA) so it was nice to escape the heat in July. The town house is super adorable and has everything you need. Pam is very helpful and wonderful, she gave us all the information we needed to make our first international trip as easy as possible :) While we were there we toured many castles and explored many towns that are a very close commute. We used all forms of transportation bus, taxi, train, etc. Balbriggan is a great place for those who want a slower paced relaxing vacation. But if you want to travel to the fast paced city it is available with a short commute via public transportation. We also traveled north to Belfast by train and did a tour at the titanic museum, which was very cool and I highly recommend. It did take up one whole day with travel time and the tour itself, but it was well worth it! There are so many other things we would love to have seen/done but you definitely need more then one week to accomplish all the great things Ireland has to offer. Hopefully we will get to go back to Ireland someday, and if we do then we will probably stay in Balbriggan again or close to it because we loved the area so much! Thank you Pam for all your help, your place in Balbriggan is an adorable, convenient, comfortable home away from home :) we loved everything about it!

Great place for a family!

  • 5 of 5
We traveled to Balbriggan to visit my mother-in-law and rented this place so we could have our own space. We had our 6 year-old and 4-month old with us. It was quiet and well-located. We walked to the beach every day. We were within walking distance of groceries and restaurants. There was everything in the house that we could have possibly needed. It was clean and the beds were comfortable. The owner and caretakers were helpful and made sure we had everything we needed. If you are looking for a typical Irish meal, the Sunday dinner at the Bracken Hotel is great.

Cosy and superbly equipped holiday home

  • 5 of 5
A home from home feel about the house as soon as we walked in, very cosy and very well equipped. We have two small children and stayed for five nights and found the house an excellent base to tour around the local area by car, and also used the train to go into Dublin city one day. Great location for young family with excellent (free) playgounds at Ardgillan Castle and Newbridge House and Farm. Dublin Zoo a great day out also.

Great vacation getaway

  • 5 of 5
This cottage exceeded my expectations. The property was clean and well maintained. The beds were comfortable and the water pressure was excellent. It had all the amenities you might need or enjoy. Very close to the beach and the train station. Thirty minutes to downtown Dublin by express train. The house was within walking distance of pubs and coffee shops. I enjoyed the peace and quiet it offered particularly at night.

The owner is most helpful and accomodating. I would highly recommend this listing and would recommend it to family and friends.

Charming and convenient.

  • 5 of 5
It was wonderful to stay in a town that was not full of tourists and to get a real feel for living in Ireland. The townhouse is very well equipped and charming. Not only were we close to the ocean but the train to Dublin (a short ride) was a short walk. Pam was an incredibly helpful hostess. We loved it.

Authentic Ireland

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this charming townhouse for 10 days in May. Here's what we really enjoyed:
1. The experience of staying in a real Irish town
2. The proximity to other areas such as the scenic town of Skerries (4miles away) with its excellent restaurants and beautiful walking park
3. Walking one block to downtown, the pubs, the restaurants, and the grocery store
4. Being one block from ocean views, a pretty church, and the train to Dublin
5. The charming decor, comfort, and price
6. How helpful, responsive, and friendly the owner and the neighbors were
7. The welcoming nature of the people in Balbriggan's pubs
8. How central the location is: easy access by car or by train to places like Newgrange, Eniskerry, Powerscourt, etc.
