Here is our pick of properties from €250,000… up to €1 million.

GETTING INTO THE property market can be a daunting experience. Here we try and make it a bit easier – and bring you four of the best properties on the market around the country this week.

Under €250,000

Galway, Tuam  - €205,000 

This rather grand four-bedroomed house in Galway was built in 1986 and offers abundant space for its modest pricetag.

In its description it is also specified that its garage is available for conversion.

While low prices on properties can often ring alarm bells – this home’s description promises that “internally the property is maintained in excellent order and is easily heated”.

This spacious bungalow in Co Dublin sits in half an acre of its own grounds and could appeal to a growing family.

The property has easy access to all of the required amenities in Lusk, Skerries, Swords and Rush and is less than an hour’s drive from the centre of Dublin city.

Coming with a modern finish, the home should be easy to heat, with underfloor heating and double-glazed windows throughout.

Cork, Castletownshend – €980,000

This three-story walled townhouse in Cork comes with its own walled garden and looks out over the County’s coastline.

The Georgian home was once owned by Edith Somerville, who was an author of some note in Victoria-era Ireland.

It is said to be in a good location for both easy access to the city centre and the Cork airport.
