‘Ireland’s Gold Coast’ Is Waiting For You This Weekend


Where do you see yourself living when you finally settle down?

Do you want to live near Dublin’s bustling city centre or do the quiet depths of the countryside call out to you?

Or maybe, just maybe, you’d prefer to live somewhere that offers the best of both worlds: a life less hectic, but not too distant from all the excitement that’s offered by the Big Smoke.

You could find exactly that in what’s being called ‘Ireland’s Gold Coast’, which is a 10km stretch of sandy beach running south from the mouth of the river Boyne at Mornington to the Delvin river at Gormanston in Meath.

Bettystown Meath

Located just 40 minutes outside Dublin, here you can find miles of safe, sandy beaches to you can while away long, relaxing afternoons.

If you enjoy exploring the great outdoors, there are plenty of nature walks you can take in the Boyne Valley Region and you can visit historically significant sites like Newgrange, Dowth, Knowth and Mellifont Abbey.

Don’t worry, you won’t have to sacrifice high-quality wining and dining to live in these parts, with award-winning nearby pubs like Moran’s and eateries like Red Rose Café to enjoy.

When you turn your thoughts to serious family planning you’re also covered, with a range of educational choices in the locale, from creches to Gael scoils.

And with the likes of St Colmcille’s GAA Club, Bettystown Golf Club and many more sporting groups nearby, active types will have plenty of social outlets to keep them busy in their downtime.

If you’re considering moving to this little corner of the world, you might want to check out a neighbourhood called Maydenhayes.

Taking its name from the 60ft Maiden Tower on Mornington Beach, this brand new development is all about establishing a community — not just another housing estate.

There are more than 80 families already living in Maydenhayes, who also have easy access to beaches, schools, shopping and other amenities in the area. A new phase of the development is to be released mid-September.

Is this the kind of place you could see yourself settling down?
