Heard from Aidan last week that with the site closed for an expected 4 weeks due to covid-19 the avenue will not be finished until late October.
Thanks for the update @Joe89, disappointing but there is absolutely nothing we can do in these crazy times.

Re: New Houses at Beresford

Just heard back from Hora; "We are pressing on with construction despite the Coronavirus issue. We did loose a bit of time with bad weather in February so that has pushed the completion back to August."

Not surprising really, the weather was very bad.

Re: New arrival - Life in Donabate

Thanks everyone for your opinions, especially the relatively new arrivals as your situation will most reflect our own. Clealy there are very differing opinions here but overall my concerns have largely been mitigated. Most of the dissatisfaction appears to be from people who are well-established in...

Re: Regret Buying Home in DONABATE?

Is it just me, or would anyone else like to see this post removed. It gives a really bad impression of the village and is not balanced. It's the kind of thing I'd type halfway through my second bottle of red wine on a Friday night. Commentary is important, but I don't think this is helpful. Secondl...

Re: New Houses at Beresford

Hi Louise, Yes you are able to use the Help To Buy scheme when purchasing one of these houses, it is a really simple process we have just gone through it while in the process of purchasing one of the houses on the Avenue. I would suggest that you call Hora directly, we have never had any problems wi...

Re: New Houses at Beresford

Hi Laura, I believe that the houses in the Avenue will now be ready around July 2020, that is the latest I have heard from the builder. With regards to picking a kitchen, I was not aware that this is an option for us, can I ask who you heard it from and with regards to what we are allowed to pick? T...

That's part of the standard contract they use. It was on our contract over 20 years ago. I crossed it out and initialed it. I can understand why it's there for apartments, but makes no sense for a private house.
Thank you, I'll do the same

Re: New Houses at Beresford

Hi all, just a quick question. Am I right in thinking that you are not allowed to have Sky TV installed because of the fact that you would need to have a satellite dish and cables on the outside of the house? Most houses have a sky dish, mine is at the front just above the roof line on the gable wa...

Re: New Houses at Beresford

I know it is a rather personal choice when it comes to things like this but would anybody recommend a Solicitor to help deal with First Time House buyers?

Thanks in advance.

Do you know which numbers are included in this dealy? This is the current situation for some of the houses on the Cresent and Court so would presume there would be a knock on to houses on the Avenue but you never know.

Re: Train service from Donabate to Connolly Station

Can’t get over all the new new houses in Donabate being sold on basis of getting on train into town. Someone should sue developers for false advertising. Standing room only from first train at 6.36. After 9 only one train an hour into Connolly. Good luck getting on a train into town & apologies if ...
