LIVING IN – OR at least near – a city is a ‘must’ that tops many first time buyer lists.

As well as the obvious convenience, city living means plenty of period properties with heaps of character.

These terraced homes range from the luxury to the more affordable, and all are close to the cities of Dublin and Galway…

Offers open at €1,475,000.
