    Have you ever gone out to Kentstown?

    It's would be quite the culture shock to you and family. One pub, takeaway & Londis. There is very little for kids, teenagers to do without driving them to Navan or Ashbourne.

    No direct bus service to Dublin city centre, last stop is Blanchardstown.

    Yea we've been out to see 2 houses recently. Looks nice and relaxed, quiet. That end wouldn't bother me nor the driving. It's antisocial behavior. Things like the Kids not been able to walk to the shop on their own, that kind of thing would be more i'd be worried about. Old threads on here from 2007/2014 saying that's its very rough. Thanks for your feedback. Do you live there yourself?

    Hi there,

    Have you gone ahead with this area? We are looking ourselves and unsure.

    What research have you got back?
