Take 4: Homes for every budget around Ireland
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

City centre, Galway – €145,000

This property in the centre of Galway is being sold as either a home or a “gilt edge investment for a shrewd investor”. The three-bedroom house is on the edge of the River Corrib and is within walking distance to the city’s university.

While good value for money – this home does require some modernisation. With it currently having a ‘G’ BER rating, the home could be difficult to heat in the winter. There are basic upgrades that can make big differences to a house’s installation.

Under €500,000

Drumcondra, Dublin – €325,000 

This area is perhaps best known nationally as the stomping ground of former Taoiseach Bertie Ahern. He is famously remembered for bringing US President Bill Clinton to Fagan’s pub during his visit in 1998.

The location is now much coveted for its proximity to the city centre and affordable housing. This spacious two-bedroom home has a number of attractive features, including parquet floors and an open fireplace. It also has a south-facing rear garden and off-street parking.

Monkstown, Cork – €625,000

Monkstown – named after a monastic settlement that grew up in the area around the 1600s – lies around 15km south of Cork city. The village sits on one of the esturies of the River Lee and in the past was key harbouring point for those importing and exporting goods.

This house was built in 1884. The five-bedroom has been maintained to a high standard and comes with a number of its original features. A unique feature of this home is its front and rear herb and vegetable gardens.

Under €1 million

Dalkey, Dublin – €850,000 

This stand alone tower in Dalkey makes quite an impression. The structure was built in an Italianate style over three stories and has been named ‘Verona’. Built in the 1930s, the elevated position of the home gives it views out over Howth harbour.

The four-bedroom house also has good access to local amenities and its close proximity to the Dalkey DART station means easy access to Dublin’s city centre.
