American Style Retirement Village comes to Ireland

Cois Carriage Retirement Village Limerick

ATG, Cois Carraig Village, Limerick

Hugely successful throughout Europe, Australia and the USA, the concept of co-housing is the ideal option for those wishing to enhance life after retirement. With co-housing, neighbourly support for an independent, active and secure lifestyle occurs naturally. This type of lifestyle offers the ideal antidote to the modern epidemics of loneliness, inactivity, financial uncertainty and security.

On a recent visit to ATG’s Cois Carraig Village in Limerick, Minister for Health, Jim Daly said that the people of Cois Carraig had found much more than a place to live.  They had found a sense community which he described as very special indeed.

This generation of retirees are far more discerning than previous generations. People are looking for a more socially interactive lifestyle and for a quality of life that was not available to retirees in Ireland to date.

Based in Limerick Cois Carraig is just 2 hours train ride form Dublin and 15 minutes drive from Shannon airport. The village boasts beautiful 2 bedroom homes, each with its own rear garden so privacy is guaranteed at all times. These homes are located around a club house which is designed for daily use and is restricted exclusively to the residents of Cois Carraig.

Testimonials from Cois Carraig’s early residents

After 4 months looking to downsize in Dublin I was forced to look farther afield. Immediately on seeing the showhouse I fell in love with Cois Carraig. I can say for certain there is nothing like this in Dublin. I love my new home and my neighbours who have been so welcoming. Moving to Cois Carraig has been one of the best decisions I have made.

We were reluctant to leave Dublin but after reading about this senior co-housing development I was tempted to check it out. The homes are comfortable and spacious. I really love the 9 foot high ceilings and there is ample space for visitors to stay over. There is a great sense of community at Cois Carraig. Limerick train station is only about 10 minutes away and we regularly return to Dublin to meet up with family and friends. I would highly recommend Cois Carraig.

Clarina is a lovely place and Cois Carraig is very quiet and peaceful. The local community is very welcoming and from the very start included us in local activities. I like that there’s a country feel even though we are on the outskirts of the city. I love walking and nearby Curragh Chase is a walker’s paradise.

On deciding to relocate my concerns were location, size and cost. I was pleasantly surprised when I visited Cois Carraig. I now live in a very modern luxury 2 bed-roomed home within a friendly and safe community. I particularly like the Club House which provides a great opportunity to meet and socialise with my neighbours.

ATG have made downsizing easy here in Cois Carraig. The concept of co-housing has been achieved with beautiful spacious and comfortable 2 bed-roomed homes. There is ample space for parking and relaxation and a strong sense of community among the residents. The community resource centre is a gem with weekly programmes for all ages and tastes.
