Should your tastes run to seafood, Irish dancing and the company of tourists, you could do worse than find a home in Glencullen, south Dublin for €695,000

Rathmore, at Barrack Road in Glencullen, is a detached dormer bungalow on three-quarters of an acre. It's about 500 metres down the road from Johnnie Fox's, established in 1798 and described as the highest pub in the country.

The house has 2,906 square feet of accommodation, mostly on the ground floor. Off the entrance hall is a sitting room with a fireplace and French doors to the garden.

The kitchen/breakfast room has double doors leading to the deck. Adjoining it is a play room, and there's also a nursery and a utility room. There are three bedrooms on this floor, one with an en-suite bathroom and two with en-suite shower rooms.

Upstairs in the dormer attic, there's a good-sized landing (just under 21 feet by 13) with built-in bookshelves - an area that could be used as a home office. There are two bedrooms on this level, both with en-suite bathrooms, and one with a walk-in wardrobe.

These two bedrooms are not counted among the total, however, the rules on habitable living spaces in dormer conversions being quite strict. So technically it's a three-bedroom house.

Electronic gates shield the property from the road. The gardens have sun terraces, a barbecue area and a small orchard, and there are views of the surrounding countryside and mountains.

Dublin city centre is about 20km away and you can reach the M50 in about 10 minutes by car. Alternatively, the Number 44B bus runs from Glencullen village to the Luas station at Dundrum.

The agent for the sale of Rathmore is Vincent Finnegan in Dundrum (01 298 4695) and the asking price is €695,000.
