Porsches in the driveway, young, dynamic ladies-about-town hailing taxis, a young man riding a bike that appears to belong to him…
What the hell is going on in Kilcoole these days?
If home builders Kimpton Vale Ltd are to be believed, Kilcoole looks set to out-posh even Greystones in the coming years, with a major housing, retail and office development being planned for the Wicklow town.
Is it any wonder they had the cheek to call it Bullford…?
Here’s the lowdown from their official site…
This website relates to a proposed strategic housing development by Kimpton Vale Ltd, an established home builder in the Greater Dublin Area, for lands at Bullford, Kilcoole, Co. Wicklow. The site is located to the immediate west of Main Street, Kilcoole.

The housing units will be 2 to 3 storeys in height and the duplex / apartment buildings will be 3 storeys in height.

The proposal includes upgrades / improvements to Main Street to facilitate the two main vehicular access points and upgrades / improvements to Farm Lane to tie-in with the permitted development to the south, which requires the carrying out of works on local authority lands and which will be carried out through agreement with the local authority.
Of course, the smarter bear with an eye to living in this particular neck of Wicklow 4 will have snapped up a ticket for that very Kool House. For everyone else, hey, watch this space, to see if you can afford Bullford.
