This Dalkey home with an incredible outdoor bar is on the market for €1.95 million

It looks like the ideal spot for summer get-togethers, while the rest of the house doesn’t disappoint either.

Dating back to 1720, Shamrock Lodge is a Georgian property that was originally a hunting lodge, but is now a beautiful family home. Although it is currently separated into two houses, it could be combined into one once again to create a spacious family home. 

You enter the home into a large hallway with original wood floors, high ceilings and decorative coving, with the living room to the left and drawing room to the right. The living room has a wood-burning stove and French doors to the garden, while the larger drawing room is dual aspect and has an original fireplace.

outdoor bar

Towards the rear of the house is the open-plan kitchen and dining space which features granite worktops,  an AGA, sandstone floors and, bifolding doors leading to the garden, while there is space for a large dining table, as well as a utility room just off this space.

There are two bedrooms in this section of the house, one with ensuite and walk-in wardrobe.

outdoor bar

There is a separate entrance to the second section of the house, which would have originally been bedrooms in the original house. It has a long kitchen, dining and living space that feels bright and modern. There are two further bedrooms in this section of the house, one with ensuite, while a converted attic space provides a potential extra bedroom or study space.

Outside, there are several patio areas in the landscaped gardens, as well as an outdoor bar area with a flagstone floor, timber beamed roofing, and a raised stone fireplace.

outdoor bar

Located just 10 minutes’ walk from the centre of Dalkey village and 20 minutes from the popular Forty Foot swimming spot, this house also has an enviable location. It’s also just a short walk from the nearest DART station, providing easy access to the city centre.
