Hi I'm from Carrick (living in Dub now though) its a great spot the areas I like living wise are Summerhill, Shannon Lodge there are also nice spot out on the Leitrim/Boyle road. Good pubs The Oarsman, Cryans, Murtaghs, Flynns, Dunnes and Gings. Nice restaurants/hotels Landmark, Cryans, Bush, Vittos, Oarsman, Chungs and Himalyana restaurants. The shopping is good a 24hr tesco, boots, heatons, woodies, supervalu a good gym, cinema and bowling alley. I go back twice a month to get my fill of Carrick

Hi all, What is Oaklands in Carrick on Shannon like?
I am considering buying a house and moving there.
Just wondering if there are many owner occupiers there
or is it mostly rented houses?
I would appreciate your advice. Thank you.

I lived there for a year a few years ago. A lot of Carrick flooded, so my recommendation is to ask around and do not go for a low-lying area near the river or on a flood plain.

Hi all. I would be most grateful for a pm with advice on The Paddocks
as a place to move to. Is it a quiet area.... is it mainly rented houses there? Many thanks.

Hi all - I am curious about Oaklands too. If anyone could PM me with some advice about the area I'd be very grateful.

Oaklands is mostly rental. If I was in my 20s and was only really looking for a place to sleep Oaklands would do fine, but I wouldn't live in it now.

Nearly all the Celtic Tiger era estates in Carrick are not great, to be fair.

Anyone looking to move there would be better off with the pre-1990 areas.
