How are they asking for more if not getting the price ? Do people haggle the price for new builds I assumed you took the price the developer is asking. Thanks
There are 33 properties listed as sold for over 380k there (some as 379,999 but we wont argue over that). Not sure if they're inclusive or exclusive of VAT. They're getting the asking price.

Does the 25a bus go from Lucan village? Seems shocking that there is no regular bus service from the new estate yet. Once an hour is not regular enough.

I myself was hoping to get public transport into town for work. My plan was to get a train into Pearse station.. Be interested to hear how people are managing to get into town via public transport on a daily basis.

Anyways as of now I’ve only paid a deposit! Plenty of thinking to do...
Currently I'm getting the train to Connolly for work. They run fairly regular from Adamstown but getting a seat can be difficult. Bus isn't really an option at the moment. Aside from that I love my house and the estate and I think things will only get better as the development grows, I would expect to see more amenities like a local shop in a year or two.

Yes, they’ll be putting a caravan bay in every other parking space.

They're building 346 units between Alderlie and St. Helen's. It's a mix of 2, 3, 4 bedroom houses, duplexes and a couple of apartment blocks.

Only the houses are advertised for this development so I would suspect that the duplexes and apartments will be a mix of social and affordable housing.

I got my deposit back that I put down for a house I Shackleton which was a real shame. However, I’m happy with my decision.

There is no doubt that the houses in Shackleton are top class. However, due to the lack of facilities and the amount of social apartments I had to pull out. There seems to be more than 10% for social housing in Shackleton, though I could be wrong.

A lot of people who bought in phase I were lied to by Cairns in relation to the situation with regard to all the social apartments and there is a lot of anger about this. A lot of people are also concerned that all the apartments are for social apartments and they’re not spread out like with has happened with some other new developments.

You also need to consider the transport links and will this work for you. At the end of the day you need to get a feel of the area and see is it right for you. Don’t forget you will have part V in other new developments if its a new build you want.

This thread is heavily been censored. A lot of posts are been removed which is really isn’t fair and helpful to people researching this development. Buying a house is one of the biggest financial decisions anyone will make and surely people are given a chance to do a through review of any potential development. Again Cairns influence of course!!

Surely a young single parent working their ass off could be in a social house and Ireland's biggest drug dealer could buy a detached 4 bed with dirty money?

There has been absolutely no anti social behaviour, it's very quiet with an active neighborhood watch group.
Airlie park is still at planning and development stage, how it will go is anyone's guess but if it goes ahead as per the plans it will be a fantastic amenity right on our doorstep...though I personally have concerns about anti social activity when you live near any public park.
The nearest school is Schoil Mhuire in Arlie Heights, we only applied in May last year for Junior Infants and got a place at the very last minute. However we went with Adamstown Educate Together, for a number of reasons and have no complaints so far.

They nearest shop is Spar in Dodsboro, less than a ten min walk, Tesco right beside it. There are plans for a supermarket at the Celbridge side of the development, you'll find the plans on the south dublin county council website.

Are you looking at any other development currently?

The new Hallwell development in Adamstown seems to be reasonably priced with 3 bed terrace starting at 319k.

Why am I so sceptical about that pricing...

Also with Brexit and some other uncertainties in Europe that is also another reason that I’m happy to wait until possibly the autumn to buy. My preference would be to buy a new build.
if you are talking about the barnwell then the release is right next to social housing
