    As a luas user, it seems almost impossible to get on a tram after Balally at rush hour, so not really worth the extra money!

      Move to Waterford… where there’s a proper* river running through it :) …and house prices nothing like those.

      ( * I jest…. context: having come from Galway, I always thought the trickle of the river Liffey running by Heuston, the point of my first introduction to Dublin, was a major disappointment. )

            Baltimore and Clonakillty if you like the almost too Irish perfection, off the beaten track between Inchigeelagh and Bandon is old school no leprechauns Ireland, Go east for beaches and better cafes, from Fota and Barryscourt all the way to Youghal.
            In Waterford, I loved living in Dungarvan, great food lovely people, just the right soupcon of cracked.

            Living in West Cork, I cant see why one would travel eastwards for better cafes and beaches.

            Youghal? No thanks.

            I do like County Waterford though.

          The estates along and between John’s Hill/Cnoc Eoin and the R683 are nice. Gets more suburban the further out you go from the city centre. I don’t see that as a bad thing mind, an estate.
          The following are estates or areas roughly listed in order of passing through as you leave the city centre going out either of those two roads, in a roughly South Easterly direction:

          Newtown Sports Ground, Grange Manor, Ardkeen Village, Viewmount, Mount Pleasant, Earlscourt, Dunmore Road, Grantstown…..

          We looked around those areas, my wife said they were the ‘good’ spots. She might correct me on some or add more, but in that general direction is where we did look, before deciding to stay put and do ‘fixer upper’ instead. We’re city centre near Ballybricken/Gracedieu Road …5 minute walk from the quay / less than 10 from the train station / 5 mins from the start of the Greenway which suits me and my bike :)

          My recommends are only for Waterford city. Of course, there is Dungarvan and other towns, as we did look at moving out country, but I’d know little of the areas… in fairness :)

            Thanks lads! Great food for thought there. It’s a long game kind of plan.

            Just have to get the next child out first THEN move to the schticks.

            I am glad you are settling in well, Clamps, I remember you talking about moving a couple of years ago.
