Join a sustainable energy community
Carlinn Hall, Dundalk, Co Louth
Dublin's commuter-belt counties have seen a resurgence in popularity among buyers priced out of the capital and Louth is no different.
Carlinn Hall in Dundalk has the added benefit of being located just a few minutes' drive to the M1 motorway to the capital, offering a straightforward commute for buyers willing to exchange distance in return for more bang for their buck.
Indeed, the seven homes available in Carlinn Hall's latest phase offer plenty of space at a relatively affordable price: one is a four-bed detached property costing from €280,000, two are four-bed semi-detached dwellings priced from €250,000, and there are four three-bed semi-detached homes with a price tag of €205,000 apiece. The exteriors of the properties are a mix of red brick, cutstone cladding and white plaster.
Carlinn Hall is a former ghost estate off Dundalk's Mullaharlin Road that was designed to be the country's largest ever sustainable energy community. A key feature of the development when it was unveiled in 2007 was the installation of a community biomass boiler, capable of heating every house in the development, by burning pellets made from willow trees. The new A3-rated properties still benefit from this efficient source of energy. A new phase was added to Carlinn Hall last year.
Residents can access the M1 at Junction 16. Dundalk also has a train station and an express bus service to Dublin and Belfast.
