We're considering getting this done, but would like to see what others have done. I read that people have previously referenced About Space, any photo's of their work on the estate? Much appreciated! Dan


I don't have any pictures of ours but if you ask Pat he would most certainly arrange for you to view some that have already been completed in the estate. We have had 3 couples come see ours.

I must say they do a great job and it is definitely worth it for us to have had it done.

Any questions shoot me a PM.

Carv, thank you.
I'll certainly reach out to Pat for this. Dan

Hi folks,

Just a quick intro/hello! I and my wife are due to move into Beresford Court in Q1 next year. We are very much excited about the move as first time buyers and are looking forward to meeting everyone.
Also many thanks to all the contributors to this thread over the years, it is a great source of knowledge for ourselves.

Regards,
Eoin

Hello everyone,

My girlfriend and I have also purchased on the Court. This forum has been a great source of information to have so thanks to everyone that's contributed. We're looking forward to meeting you all!

We just received an update from Aidan on a couple of things that we though were worth sharing here:

On the completion date for the houses on the Court, Aidan said:
"The foreman is telling me December but I don’t believe him. Run with January to be safe."

On selecting the kitchens, he said:
"Kube will be in contact in the next few days. We are just finalising the exact spec and layout."

Hopefully that answers some questions some of you may have had. If I hear anything else I'll update.

Cheers,
Jay

Yes thanks Jay that's good to know.

Aidan had said to me it would be September for kitchens so was hoping we would hear something soon from Kube. He was also guiding January for completion or at least snagging.

I have also bought in Beresford Court, end of terrace.

Just to share our experience to date we were told mid September, that moved to end September and we just got notification that we are snagging October 9th. It's been difficult getting info from Horas and frustrating as we are in temporary accommodation which we are extending on a week by week basis. Just be aware that some things like esb connections and county council sign offs are out of their control. So while we have a snag date we have zero idea as to when we might get keys. Don't wish to soubd negative but just be prepared for delays.

If its any help, my house was ready to close the week after snag. There was very little on my snaglist though. Impression i got is houses are pretty much ready to go when you are called to snag. If you are called to snag, builder wants to close and get his money. Builders do seem to be going flat out at moment, this week & last week some work done on walls, paths etc on the latest phase. The couple of houses that i can see from mine have had their kitchens in for a few weeks now. Grass/weeds in gardens need a mow ;-)

The last update I received from Aidan indicated the following for Beresford Crescent:
a) Week of Oct 1st - Snagging starts on 1-10
b) Weeks of Oct 22nd or 29th - Snagging starts in 11 - 14.

Hi folks, we're hoping to get our heat pump in Beresford house serviced by Gilroy Heating Services in the next month. We got the guy's name from friends who had it done there previously. He's quoting €250 for a service to us but he says he'll come down in price if there were others who wanted it done around the same time. Please let me know if you might be interested. Thanks, ac

This seems very expensive, Artic Air (www.articair.com/) serviced mine twice now in Beverton, around €110 for a full service.
Another is www.heatamechheatpumps.ie - I had him fix a plumbing issue and look at the heatpump - again much lower than €250.

Hi Guys,

New to the forum.. The wife and I (+ toddler!) have bought in the Court and can't wait to move in. Big thanks to everyone who has posted so far... very informative reading back through the pages of this thread. (good to see we have plenty of active community members).

We were contacted by Kube kitchens a few days ago to make an appointment. They sent along a selection guide - choice around colours / upgrades seems to be a little limited vs earlier phases but I think part of the reason is that some of the previous "upgrades" (eg double ovens ) are now standard. Counter-top space seems a little limited but I think that is a trade-off to open up more of the back-end of the kitchen (and the appliance upgrades).

As far as completion dates go, I've also been told January by Hora.

Hi Haribo,

Thanks for the info. I also got the kitchen literature.

Can anybody who bought in Phase 1 share the kitchen choices they were sent? I'd love to compare the two.

Thanks,
Jay

Hi All, great to hear people are starting to get the kitchen
Appointments. We have been told april by the time we will be in so no appointment yet for kube.

Just wondering for people who bought three beds Type C and get alcoves in the sitting room, who did them for you?

Thanks
