With the N3 only 300 metres at Whitegate, in location terms, this property is highly convenient for those who commute to Dublin or indeed for those who transverse the country for a living. This allows for ease of connection with the M3 and ultimately with the M50 connecting with many of the country's primary arterial routes.

Rurally located, but with the convenience of a twenty-four hour shop at the top of the road (300 metres), this property enjoys the best of both worlds. Ten minutes or so takes you to the town of Kells, a further ten minutes get you to Navan and an additional twenty minutes get you to Blanchardstown. In the opposite direction, Virginia is a picturesque lakeside town that offers many local retail outlets, hostelries and other service businesses. It too is home to renowned chef Richard Corrigans estate, the magnificent Virginia Park Lodge.
