Gorey is an hour's drive from the outskirts of Dublin. As accommodation prices continue to rise in the capital, many workers have made the decision to move further outside of the city; Gorey's position on the N11 - a direct link to the capital - has made it an attractive choice for commuters, many of whom spend less time travelling to work than their counterparts living in particular areas of Dublin.
As a result of workers commuting to Dublin, there has been a dramatic increase in the building of new houses in Gorey. Between 1996 and 2002, the population has risen by 44% in the town and by 23% in the surrounding district. As Gorey is a short distance from Dublin it is an ideal place to stay and book quality B&B accommodation where you will receive a warm Irish welcome.
