    Five romantic homes on MyHome.ie this St Valentine’s Day

    Home is where the heart is, or so they say, so what better way to impress the love of your life than by cosying up in your dream home for St Valentine’s Day.
    With that in mind, the team at MyHome.ie have put together a list of five of the most romantic properties which caught their eye on the site right now.
    True some of them may be a tad pricey and beyond the budget of most of us, but there’s no harm dreaming of that idyllic place to spend some quality time with your loved one.
    The Castle…
    We’ve all heard the story of Rapunzel being rescued from her tower by her prince and if you’ve hair long enough you can try to recreate that scene at the stunning Heathfield Castle in Ballinrune, Kilmeedy, Co Limerick. The castle itself extends to circa 3,500sq ft while it offers approximately one acre of secluded gardens to stroll through while holding hands.
    The Penthouse…

    Few things scream romance like a penthouse apartment with a stunning view. This particular example in Bray, Co Wicklow boasts a south facing balcony and is wonderfully finished in an open plans style. With so much more on its doorstep, this ticks a lot of boxes on the romantic front.
    The Waterfront…

    There’s few things more romantic than watching the sun go down with a loved one. Where better to do that than in a stunning waterfront property like this one in Co Kerry which boasts coastal views over Kenmare Bay & Ring of Kerry. The 3 bed house also offers complete privacy within a mix of beautiful mature trees and shrubs.
    The Saint…

    This 3 bed apartment in Dublin 2 might not appear the most romantic of homes at first glance but with property it’s all about location, location, location. Situated on Whitefriar Street, it’s just a few hundred metres away from Whitefriar Street Church where the shrine and relics of St Valentine rest. Irish Carmelite John Spratt brought the remains of St Valentine back to the church in 1836 and people have flocked to see them in the last half a century since they were returned to prominence.
    The cottage…

    Nothing says old style romance like a traditional thatched cottage. This one in Mooncoin in Kilkenny not only offers somewhere cosy to cuddle up with a loved one but it also benefits from room for expansion into the mature spacious garden to the front.

    Barnhall Meadows – A chance to live in a ‘Wonderful Place’

    The Wonderful Barn in Leixlip, Co Kildare, provides the perfect backdrop to the stunning Barnhall Meadows development by Glenveagh Homes.
    Situated on the edge of Castletown House estate, formerly belonging to the Conolly family, the corkscrew-shaped building – which was built in 1743 – sits in front of these new architecturally designed, 2 and 3 bed homes which have prices starting from €320,000.

    The Wonderful Barn overlooks Barnhall Meadows in Leixlip, Co Kildare

    As well as providing a protected 4 acre parkland area right beside these fabulous new homes, the enchanting Wonderful Barn also forms part of the scenic 16km Arthur’s Way Heritage Trail which provides a superb walking, running or cycling route for local residents.

    Barnhall Meadows takes its name from The Wonderful Barn and is further evidence of developers’ Glenveagh’s appreciation of the past. They might be a young company but they appreciate their history and even the brochures for this new development have been designed in such a way as to encapsulate the inside of the barn.

    The Wonderful Barn is described as a fairy tale-style building and you can create your own wonderful story in Barnhall Meadows – a development which truly blends the best of town and country. The aforementioned walk and scenery brings peace and tranquility while Leixlip with its wide range of services and amenities – including two railway stations with regular links to the capital and further afield – has all you could ever need on your doorstep.
    Following the hugely successful previous launch in Barnhall Meadows, Glenveagh Homes have now released new 2 and 3 bed semi-detached and detached houses to the market.
