The latest figures from Daft.ie.

THE AVERAGE ASKING price of a home in Blackpool, Cork is now just over €170,000, according to the latest figures from Daft.ie. 

Analysis across all properties brought to market in the area between April and June 2018 puts the average list price at €171,224.

This is the lowest of any Cork city neighbourhood tracked by Daft.ie. The nearest comparison is the neighbouring Cork North-West area, where the equivalent figure is €180,899. The average puts Blackpool in the bottom 25 per cent of neighbourhoods around the country by price.
