We have been very excited about the launch of our latest phase of development at SeaGreen Gate, with our show homes opened last weekend to reveal the beautiful interiors of our new houses in Greystones. The show homes will also be open for viewing this Bank Holiday Weekend, Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th May, from 2pm to 4pm. But while we are delighted to show just what you can expect from the Wilde, the Yeats and the Beckett four-bedroom houses in this great development, we are just as excited about the changes the warmer weather is bringing to Greystones, and the stunning scenery and enviable lifestyle that makes this thriving seaside town the perfect location to buy a new home.

For those who enjoy the great outdoors and all that this seaside location has to offer, you need look no further than the famous Cliff Walk between Greystones and Bray. This picture-perfect walk, with its array of wildlife and flora, really comes into its own as the sun begins to shine, with flowers in bloom as far as the eye can see, creating a beautiful landscape like a sea of gold in which to take a leisurely stroll and enjoy an active lifestyle, as this recent blog from Greystones Guide reveals.
Even at the seafront, where you can now enjoy a number of water-based activities, you can’t help but notice the sea of yellow flowers erupting into bloom, and probably won’t be able to resist embarking on the cliff walk to get a closer look and wander through this beautiful vista.

This 7km walk from Greystones to Bray Head (pictured below) has a well-maintained path from start to finish that offers amazing views, no matter where you look. The surrounding coast opens out to one side, with the chance to watch seabirds, porpoises, dolphins and basking sharks in the sea below, while on the other, the majestic flora dazzles anybody who takes to this route for fresh air, exercise, or just to wonder at the beauty of this part of the world.
It’s no surprise that once arriving in Bray, even though the DART line makes the return commute so easy, many people decide to turn around and make the journey back to Greystones by foot, just so they can take it all in again.
While the trek along this pathway is a feast for the senses, it can be hungry work, so it is just as well that another major attraction to living in Greystones is that the town has become a real foodie haven, and can provide a literal feast for anybody who wants to drop in and enjoy a well-deserved treat for the tastebuds too.
Probably the most famous eatery in Greystones is The Happy Pear, which, though popular all year round, can’t be beaten once the sun begins to shine and crowds gather to sit outside and enjoy a tasty meal and a perfect summer day, whether that’s on the path to the front of the establishment, or in the back yard behind it.
The family-run establishment focusing on local produce and natural foods, wholefood café and evening restaurant offers a great dining experience, and really adds to the summer feel of the town. It’s no wonder it is known locally as ‘the happiest place on Earth’.
Tucking into one of the many super-healthy, super-tasty dishes the café offers, while the sun shines down, it’s easy to see why locals and visitors alike soon begin to glow with the same vibrancy you see in the surrounding landscape.
Summer is a real celebration at The Happy Pear, with founding twin brothers Dave and Steve Flynn eager to bring the fresh produce the season brings to their menus. An article in The Irish Examiner saw them extol the virtues of summer living in Greystones and the surrounding area.
‘There is plenty of ripe fruit, the weather is warm, everyone wants to eat healthy and be outside, and everyone is more extroverted,’ Steve says.
‘Strawberries, raspberries and rhubarb are all in season and even Irish cherries, these all excite us, plus there’s the opportunity to go have more picnics and more outdoor dining, which we really adore.’
That enthusiasm spreads quickly as the sun shines and the weather gets warmer in Greystones, and the atmosphere of easy, fun living is infectious, making it a truly magical place to call home.
Because of the amazing scenery that really comes into its own as summer rolls around, and the fantastic amenities and special places to sit, relax and enjoy a good meal or a refreshing drink, Greystones is a really special place to visit, but it’s an even better place to call home.
That is one of the reasons why the development of new houses at SeaGreen Gate in Greystones is proving so popular. Not only are these homes designed to meet every modern need and convenience, with the highest quality fixtures and fittings throughout, but they are perfectly located overlooking the town and the coast, and are just a stone’s throw from the sea and all the great facilities your family can enjoy close by.
As the pictures above show, Greystones really does come alive in the summertime, and if you choose to buy a new home in the beautiful SeaGreen development, you will quickly find out how easy the living can be.
