Set on a spectacular site looking out across Dublin Bay, this modern home has five bedrooms, airy living spaces and an elevated terrace.

Constructed in 2009 and with uninterrupted views of Dalkey island, Mount Alverno on Sorrento Road in Dalkey is a large, spacious home in one of the most expensive areas in the country, as is evident from its price tag.

Designed by de Blacam & Meagher architects, it sits on an elevated site, making the most of its stunning sea views, which you can enjoy from many of the main rooms in the house, as well as the outdoor terrace.
