HI ,

New to boards :

Moving into one of the phase two houses.

Have been told house should be ready October but I'm guessing snag etc will be November at the earliest before we can move in.

A few questions if anyone is happy to assist:

Any one recommend good snagger? I saw a few people were messaged a few names.
Also any good blinds & curtain company installers?
Was going to ask for dimensions from Savilles for the house (4B) but I'm guessing you should always get the windows remeasured once in.

Lastly if anyone has measurements for new 4 bed layout , need to see measurement for looking at couches

Much appreciated, looking forward to meeting the new neighbours.


Last phase I see going up this month

I read this week in the Leinster Leader that 6 houses were broken into this week in Carton Wood, they said the were unoccupied. Does anyone know if these were houses yet to be sold or unoccupied meaning that the owners were just not in at the time?

I would be interested to know if any real damage was done and if it will cause any delays with people are still waiting on keys!

That's very disappointing news about the spate of burglaries. I was hoping to buy in phase 3, but with the type A houses to be rumoured to be around 400k then I think it's time for me to look elsewhere in Maynooth . There's definitely more value to be had in Maynooth, just have to roll the dice with the student accommodation.

These types of burglaries happen in every new estate unfortunately- just opportunistic with unoccupied houses. Live in the estate and we are delighted with it so far!
Would be very surprised if house prices increase that much but I suppose you never know in today's market!

Maynooth has an extremely high burglary rate, another thing not pointed out in developers brochures. You need a monitored alarm without default bypass codes at the very least.

We're interested in making a move to Maynooth and really like the estate, would anyone know which part of the attached site plan is the next phase? Am I right in thinking it's the block facing "proposed park"?

Also, is there a halting site the other side of the road, has this ever been a concern?

Yes think it's the houses in that block that are left. Ring Savills and they'll let you know. Halting site is a non issue as far as I can see.

Thank you. I'll be onto them first thing Monday.

Anyone living there commute to Dublin city centre, roughly how long does it take?

We got a superking upstairs in Type B no problem, the guys had no difficulty. It fits well in room, still good space.

I live in the estate next door to this one. I am in work for 7.30. Train leaves Maynooth at 6.20 and I am at my desk by 7.30! I have to swap trains at Pearse but it’s grand. I think it gets to Pearse by 7.10 so it’s a grand commute in. The train into town is much quicker than the bus.
