St. Marnocks Bay - Dun Si

We have just put a booking deposit down on Dun Si the new part of St. Marnocks Bay. Just wondering if anyone else has and if you have any news on development?

Our solicitor got the contracts and we are signing them next week. No estimated date of completion i can see.

The houses seem to be well in the way to be finished

I should have been clearer. No news on the development apart from what I can see - shell is complete on most houses, driveways and paving has gone in and work is continuing on interior. I think white goods have also gone in.

We signed contracts and paid balance of deposit this week.

Traffic will be fairly hectic around there. Moyne Road, Clarehall etc. Huge developments have taken place around Clarehall in the last year & Clongriffin too is busy. I hope there will be enough amenities provided.

It's the noise from airplanes that put me off from buying there. I couldn't hear it in the house too much (thanks to triple glazing) but would find it annoying when sitting in the garden. It a shame as the show house was beautifully finished. However, for 600k plus I don't want planes flying over my head every 2min (actually timed it) until 11pm.

They are upgrading Moyne Road which will help hopefully but a lot of traffic around the area as it is before these new houses

Was worried about this too but have been walking the dog around the estate a bit and it’s not too bad.
Live beside a train station now and don’t notice the sound after a while. Was watching the planes as I was in the show house and could not here them with the insulation and windows

Did you get an estimated close date when you signed?

Nope, no date given so far. Houses look like they’re progressing well but impossible to predict things like electricity and drain connection.

We got an estimated close date of August which looks likely with how they look to be progressing

The landscaping work look great. Particularly like the trees on the avenue.

Any word on prices for the apartments?

Daft states €350k for two bed apartment and €425k for three bed duplex

They seem to be doing a good job on the estate

There was no queues for the initial launch.
It was very busy and the three beds went fairly quickly.
They had a number system ready but is was not needed really.
Hard to tell about this weekend as it is different types of properties they are launching
