Want a safe area for young kids to play? Here are four options that fit the bill, from Cork to Wicklow.

THE HUMBLE CUL-DE-SAC is an underrated feature. If you have young kids at home, living on one of these curved, closed-off roads means you’ll have much more peace of mind when they’re running around outside – and it gives your home some extra privacy and tranquility too.

This week we’re looking at four family homes in quiet cul-de-sacs around the country – from a new build in Glasnevin to a home with sea views in Wicklow.

Glasnevin, Dublin 9

A new development of just six homes off Botanic Road in Glasnevin, Fairfield Court features two-bed bungalows and four-bed terraced homes. There are three of each type of property available, with prices starting at €595,000 for the former and €750,000 for the latter. 

Each home is A-rated for energy efficiency and boasts a design that’s both timeless and modern. The four-bed homes are arranged over three levels, while the bungalows include a large attic space. All homes include a south-facing garden.
