A Look Inside Skylark: Quintain’s Major Portmarnock Scheme

UK & Irish developers, Quintain have recently sold out the latest phase of their sought after development located at St. Marnock’s Bay in Portmarnock.

Following their successful first launch at ‘Skylark’ in 2020, Quintain quickly sold out phase 2 of the development which comprised a selection of 4 bedroom homes.

When complete, Skylark will comprise 153 homes, made up of 113 three and four-bed houses and 40 apartments and duplexes. The development will also include 3 retail units, namely a café, restaurant, and a medical unit.

The latest phase of sold-out houses comprised four-bed homes in a variety of styles. The ‘Sandpiper’ and ‘Crane’ are 4-bedroom, semi-detached homes, measuring 1,488 sq ft. The ‘Dunlin’ is a 4-bedroom, semi-detached home, measuring 1,626 sq ft.

The plot sits on the North Dublin coastline near the Portmarnock Velvet Strand, adjacent to the newly planned Skylark Park, which will extend 3 acres of open greens. Skylark is situated next to the Portmarnock DART station, so residents will have regular connections to the city centre.

Neighbouring Howth and Malahide, this development ensures residents have access to a selection of local schools and amenities such as sports clubs and supermarkets, as well plentiful public transport links.

With sections of Skylark under construction, Quintain liaised with CGI consultants, 3D Design Bureau to produce a series of 3D visualisations for marketing purposes. 3D Design Bureau produced an interactive off-plans 360 virtual tourinterior CGIs, Aerial CGIs, and architectural CGIs which were used to sell the units off-plans.
