    Hi All,

    Potentially looking at living in Moate and wondering if anyone has any feedback on what estates are good areas to live

    Ard na Locha and Cois na hAbhainn look promising, anyone know what these estates are like?

    Not sure I'd want to Cois na hAhhainn with all the rain that's falling at the moment..... No idea what these estates are like but I do know that these ridiculous estate names as gaeilge sound really stupid when everyone speaks English in Moate !

    Hi OP, I've lived in Moate for a few years now. It is a nice town to live in, it has the small town feeling where you can get to know people. It has the essentials and it is handy to get to Athlone.
    Both estates you mentioned in your original post are ok to live in from what I've heard and seen.
    I haven't heard anything bad about Ard na Locha but there are undeveloped lands either side of it, I think the area was to be more built up than it was.
    For Cois na Habhainn we had looked at a house there ourselves, it was near the front of the estate so I don't know what the smaller townhouses are like further in.
    I would avoid Sliabh Rua (unless you can get the front row or two, after that they look very run down). I would also avoid Toorvalley, which is across the road, they are badly built and houses undesirables.
    Ard Grainne is fine, a certain family have apparently given it a bad name, but we've had no major trouble so far ourselves or maybe we've just been lucky.
