I've sent a ticket through the support function on the app, however I'm beginning to think there wont be anyone there until Monday morning.

Surely lots of people were moving this weekend though so I don't know how it is being managed in terms of people being given keys.

I would imagine with all the move ins, final bits and open viewings that the reception isn’t being properly staffed.



Has anyone who moved in tried an internet speed test? Assume it’s relatively fast but curious to see

Aaand one last question - how is the electricity meter set up for heating / water etc, I assume it PAYG? Are they "smart" meters that you can control via an app or not?

Almost a week now after move in and I haven't noticed or heard a single plane pass by. May be outside the house.

I go outside 4/5 times every day with my dog and I haven't noticed any noise since I moved here on Tuesday.

You can control your usage and you can top up using the Pinergy app. Furthermore, there is a Dimplex hub in any apartment where you can configure zones and add appliances to control the heating and related energy consumption.

I contacted reception many times and I opened 5 tickects, they came back to me in less than 2 hours and replied to my tickects in 3ish hours. BTW, they fixed all reported issues.

Hi! I my application has been accepted. I can chose between three standard doubles as that is all that is left so far, the rest is plus and premium. Has anyone moved into a standard double? Wondering what exactly is the difference for the prices. Also any idea when next batch will be released?

The main difference is total size and slightly different furniture.

I asked the same question to the vesta support team and they said the next batch will be in the coming weeks.

Hello - could anyone find EIRCode that can be used for ordering groceries etc? Currently Tesco can't accept our postal address. Buymie also insists for eircode.

Interestingly, eircode.ie shows on map as if the vesta blocks have eircodes, but those codes actually belong to other properties on the east side of the park.

Also, wondering how long it might take for assigning eircodes to these blocks.

I have the same question about Eircode and Tesco...

Also, I havent heard any planes from inside the apartment. And barely outside. Overall it's very quiet, much quieter than in town. Planes are not a nuisance at all compared to the constant sirens and alarms in town... What's driving me crazy is the self closing doors, I bought wedges in Ikea but they're useless (don't buy them! The flower thingy...). so I have one box per door right now, I'm wondering if the system can be disabled
