The Sophie Barat Residence is a wonderfully safe, secure and friendly place to live. I have been here for just over 2 years and very pleased that I made the decision to move in. When you live alone it is great to know that, in an emergency, with the press of a button someone will be at your door in minutes.

The grounds are beautifully kept and there is access to Mount Anville School grounds which are directly behind the SBR and a lovely place to go for a stroll. Deer Park is also close by.

Shops, including post office and chemist, 5 minutes’ walk away. Also, there is very good public transport.


In the early 60s my Mum, Sophie, used to drop me off at Mount Anville Primary School into the very capable hands of Mother Reid. Now, decades later, “ta me ar ais”, déjà vu, living happily for the past six years in the Sophie Barat Residence, continuing to savour the peace, security and tranquillity of my lovely home.

The decision to return to Ireland after living abroad for 50 years at the age of 70 was made for me by circumstances altering slowly over the previous years.

On a visit home in 2010 at lunch with some classmates, Sophie Barat Residence was mentioned in passing.
At first sight I was charmed by the garden settings, the sunny bright houses (it was June). Luckily “my house” was ready for me to move into.

My experience on meeting staff and neighbours was one of caring, consideration and friendliness in a thriving little community. I value personal space and independence. The stability and safety provided here are an added bonus.
The convenience and proximity of shops, medical facilities, “drop in” coffee mornings and various outings make meeting up with old friends and making new ones a pleasure.

A good move all round!


Situated adjacent to Mount Anville School grounds, the Sophie Barat Residence is a homely complex of 28 well-designed one-bedroom houses. After over two years here, I appreciate the peaceful and social community living offered in the pleasant environs and the friendly neighbours.
The creative interests of the Residents allow for many social activities.
