Nestled along side the Irish Sea on the East coast of Ireland, just north of the capital city of Dublin, rests the growing community of Balbriggan. Only 15 minutes north from Dublin Airport, and you are there.
A landmark of beauty is the “Arches”, (viaduct), in the park/car park overlooking the harbour. The well groomed flowers extend their beauty most of the year.
The beach and promenade is a favourite spot for a walk, or a refreshing dip in the summertime. Look carefully, you might catch a glimpse of a seal or two following the fishing boats into harbour.
The shopping area is small but extensive, with a range of interesting local stores.
The lovely cricket grounds, tennis courts, GAA Football pitch and Workout Gym are all near the centre of town.
Balbriggan Golf Club has an excellent 18 hole facility off the old Dublin Road, between Balbriggan & Balrothery. Nothing is actually too far away.
Stop into the shops, the cafes, the mall, and strike up a conversation with the people of Balbriggan. A variety of backgrounds from Ireland, and a splendid blend of individuality is seen as you begin to get to know the fine local residents.
A must is a visit to the Ardgillan Demesne only 2 miles east. Lovely walks, Walled Gardens, Roses, Museum and Victorian Glasshouse will be an enjoyment.
To the North is the historic Boyne Valley, and to the West you find the ancient passage graves of “Four Knocks”. Things to do and see are everywhere.
