Under €250,000

Walkinstown, Dublin – €225,000 

This area of south Dublin is in the ascendancy. The south Dublin suburb still offers house hunters affordability while only being a short distance from the city centre. The residential suburb has the benefit of a number of green areas within it.

This three-bedroom home would suit a family looking to get onto the property ladder. It comes onto the market for €225,000 – meaning potential buyers are able to borrow up to 80% of the house’s value on the majority (€220,000) of its total value.
