For Dublin buyers who want to enjoy a sense of community while also being close to shops, schools and motorways, Swords is sure to be a location that’s on your radar.

Located 15km from Dublin city centre in Fingal, Co Dublin, Swords offers the best of both worlds. It provides easy access to the city centre, as well as life in a thriving town with amenities for residents of all ages.

Swords is ideally situated for commuters, with the nearby M1 meaning you can reach the heart of the capital in 20 minutes. The Swords Express provides a direct route to the city, while multiple Dublin Bus services run in and around the town, making for an appealing choice for first-time buyers who want to be close to the action. The town’s proximity to Dublin Airport (it’s 10 minutes away) can’t be ignored, either.

With the Pavilions Shopping Centre, Airside Retail Park and the buzzing hub of businesses of all sizes on Main St, locals in Swords have the privilege of being close to whatever they may need.

“You would expect the main street of a town with 40,000 people to be hectic, but it is friendly and has great people from all walks of life,” says Alan Dunne, owner of Alan Dunne Fitness on North St. “You don’t have to go far for anything with the Pavilions, restaurants, and lots of shops around.”

Located a short drive from Swords is Ravens Mill. Situated in Rolestown village, Ravens Mill is a new development from Glenveagh Homes, with three and four-bedroom homes available off-plans now.

Parents of school-age kids will appreciate the easy access to three primary schools and six secondary schools, all within 15 minutes’ drive or less of the development. The closest, Rolestown National School, is just a five minute walk away.

Evenings and weekends can be spent walking in nature, with beautiful trails along the Broadmeadow River which runs through Rolestown, and endless acres of green to be found at the nearby Roganstown Hotel and Country Club.

As for the houses themselves, the layout of each property at Ravens Mill is designed with busy modern living in mind, with large open plan kitchens opening onto patios and seeded gardens, ideal for relaxing in the morning or evening.

Sustainable living and low energy costs are important factors for every modern buyer, and each home at Ravens Mill is A-rated for energy efficiency, with high levels of air tightness and a Samsung condensing heat pump. For those who are working from home, each house comes with fibre broadband infrastructure already installed.

Like all Glenveagh developments, green open spaces feature throughout Ravens Mill, while cycle lanes and playgrounds are also installed to create a functional and appealing locale.

With a highly convenient location in the capital, easy access to motorways and homes designed for modern living, Ravens Mill offers a picture perfect way of life for savvy buyers.
