No - I suspect that the issue there is the change of estate agent.
That not withstanding, from the latest ad for the house:
AFAIK, the nearest shops are the DIY/electrical/furniture shops and car dealers, the nearest school is in Rivervalley which is a fine few minutes walk and the transport facilities well, I guess it’s more than 10 minutes walk to the nearest bus stop (at the moment).
Exactly, DAFT is entirely dependent on the users for the quality of its information.
It’s a subgrade wikipedia run by machviallian estate agents and pepped up on goofballs vendors.
As for Holywell, Fingal might be a bit closer than the Valley and I’d say you could make the bus stop in an out of breath 10 minutes but you would want to start counting from the entrance of the estate and not the front door!
I went and looked at those show houses some time ago, I guess a year ago now at least, when it was still Abbeystone (rather than Holywell) and left completely disillusioned that people were spending 285K on a one bedroomed apartment. As the link I provided above suggests that they are selling at 269950, unless my memory is failing, I think that the new development prices are coming down too.
I went for a drive around Holywell yesterday on the way home from B&Q, and was surprized at the poor quality of the development. Very narrow internal roads around the estate, lack of parking even though occupation levels seem low, very little green areas given the density of living, no facilities, a rat run to the M1 running between the 2 phases.
I can’t help but think that the developer (Albany) is either very sloppy or really cutting corners - the stairs up to the 2nd floor duplex apts had bare steel stairs - they looked like fire escapes!
