    There's a new development coming up in Ashford and I had some questions around how the town is and what people living there think about it. Anyone else considering buying in Ashford?

    Hi, I’m also considering Vatry Wood in Ashford and not from the area. Living in Greystones the past 2 years, and wondering what Ashford is like ?

    From what I've heard so far, it seems to be a safe, quiet and a nice area. People are nice and just a few minutes away from Dublin. A lot of people have moved to Ashford recently, at least looking at the development called Ballinahinch Wood.

    Would love to hear more about this town if anyone has anything more to share. 🙂

    Hello, I live in the Ballinahinch wood estate and I can vouch that the area is really good. People are diverse, kind and inviting. The town seems to be growing pretty fast since we moved in last Decemeber. I moved from Dún Laoghaire and have no regrets so far. It is close enough to Dublin city centre although we don't really have to step into work anymore. It would be great if we had more shops in here but Wicklow town being so close really helps. I do see it grow more now that the Vartry wood estate is is developing quickly.

    Where is the Glenveagh site in Ashford?

    Does anyone know whether these homes are fitted out, flooring/kitchen wise or is this not the done thing anymore? :D

    They come with the kitchen and bathrooms done, but you need to do flooring yourself.

    So my daughter has put a deposit on a 2-bed in Vartry wood. Agent is not interested in talking details of socket positions etc - what is anyone's experience of dealing with Durkan Homes - have you had the opportunity to discuss any details?

    Not so sure about Durkan Homes, but I bought a home from Durkan Residential. I found them terrible to deal with. I found their work (plumbing, electrical and general finish) to be substandard as well.

    Hmm, looking for feedback on Vartry specifically if possible. Have heard good things about Durkan generally

    Is your daughter doing this through Saville's or Clarke Auctioneers? I dealt with Clarke's when I was originally looking at VW and found them very helpful.

    Savilles seem to be the sole agents for the current phase
