This significant milestone marks the largest LRD to be granted planning permission by Kerry County Council since the scheme's inception in 2021, aligning with the national 'Housing for All' plan.

Spanning 7.9 hectares, this development will provide 249 homes, comprising a mix of dwelling houses and maisonettes ranging from one to five bedrooms. This mixture provides for a diverse variety of living arrangements and ensures future adaptability.

Cronin’s Wood enjoys exceptional local and national connectivity, situated in close proximity to Killarney town with its array of amenities and easy access to major transport networks linking to Dublin, Cork and Limerick. Additionally, nearby industrial centres provide abundant employment opportunities for residents.

The architectural vision for Cronin’s Wood prioritises environmental sensitivity and community integration. By preserving the site’s natural contours and incorporating the sloping topography, the plans minimise disruption to the landscape while seamlessly integrating the development into its surroundings. The design ethos emphasises safe, pedestrian-friendly environments with distinct ‘homezones’ enhancing the character of each residential area.
