Here’s what some of our current residents have to say….

As I love nature I was delighted with the great view of the mountain and that we are near the sea. I love taking my dogs on long walks to the sea and the beautiful area of Ravensdale where there is a beautiful view of the town. I have made so many great friends here, for examples my neighbours are so friendly, they always help me if I have any problems. Dundalk is a great place to make your dreams come true!

I've lived in Dundalk most of my life and am lucky enough to work at Dundalk Institute of Technology. I cannot recommend moving to Dundalk enough. While living in a busy town you also are 10 minutes away from excellent beaches and parks in every direction, great for a dog owner like myself.
