Windmill Close more than just a resting spot
Windmill Close, Rathcoole, Co Dublin
The name Rathcoole, which comes from the Irish for 'ringfort of Comhaill', is often thought to have been inspired by the rath, or ringfort, built by Cumhall, the leader of the Fianna and father of Fionn MacCumhaill, the hunter-warrior in Irish mythology.
Rathcoole traditionally served as a resting point on the arduous journey from Dublin to Limerick. Today, the village is best known to motorists as the home of An Poitin Stil, a pub built on the site of an original inn house dating back to 1649, and for attracting home-buyers keen to have a taste of rural life without being too far from the centre of Dublin.
This weekend, the quaint village will see the launch of Windmill Close, a development of three and four-bed homes built by Pavement Homes. The small scheme overlooks its own green and has a secluded entrance.
Each of the homes has three floors, with 1,380 sq ft of space in the three-beds and 1,780 sq ft in the four-beds. Prices for the former start at €345,000, while the four-beds cost from €395,000.
The homes, which have an A3 energy rating, are close to the local national school and 500 yards from the secondary school. There is a Luas stop in the nearby village of Saggart.
Viewings will be held tomorrow and Sunday, between 2pm and 4pm.
