Commuting to Glasnevin

    Hi All -

    First time posting & needing some serious advice! We are a family of 5 (kids aged 15,10&4) & my husband has been offered a promotion with his current company - they are just branching out in Ireland starting with Dublin. My husband been offered a depot in Glasnevin and we will need to rent a house first before buying. So we have looked and look at areas on Google and lots of blogs - we really liked the Maynooth / Lucan area but after research on here the commute sounds awful! What areas out with the actual city maybe make the commute to Glasnevin easier? We know it will be busy where every we live at it is a busy city but any advice on area will be greatly appreciated? Also any tips on renting and getting to view a property as we are search daft multiple times a day contacting the estate agents listed on Ads but very very few even acknowledge.

    This promotion will literally change our lives so much for the better but everything relies on finding somewhere to live & it’s proving SO difficult even with great job offer and great references from landlords.

    Many thanks in advance 😊🤞

    Have a look at Swords, Malahide Ashbourne and Dunboyne maybe even Donabate, lusk and rush

    Rathoath and Ashbourne are decent satellite towns that are very commutable him Glasnevin. I'd completely avoid any commute that brings you on to the M50

    Am I missing something? Why not live in Glasnevin? It is a very nice area in parts and Drumcondra is similar.

    I'd imagine because the starting price for a 3 bed is circa 2,500 p/m and that's if you can find one to rent in the first place
