For the first time in several years, there is a substantial number of new houses going on the market in west Co Dublin, especially in areas such as Lucan. Shackleton Park, a Cairn Homes scheme just outside the former spa town, has contributed to that growth.
The development is named after the Shackleton family, whose most famous scion was polar explorer Ernest Shackleton. His photographer cousin Jane was raised in Anna Liffey House, an opulent Georgian pile with a mill on the River Liffey in Lucan.
Shackleton Park was launched in 2017 and a further 25 homes will be released the weekend after next. Prices start at €345,000 for a three-bed and at €395,000 for a four-bed. Inside the A3-rated houses, high ceilings to the ground floor make the most of the natural light. To the rear, the fitted contemporary-style kitchen comes with soft-close cupboards and drawers, and there's a separate utility room. Viewings this February 16 and 17, between 2.30pm and 4pm.
