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

Galway city centre – €210,000

This investment property is located in an official NUIG off-campus residence and would suit someone looking for a property to rent to students.

The four-room house is a 10-minute walk to both the university and the city centre. The property comes onto the market in fully furnished condition.

While the description seems to heavily imply its appropriateness for students, it seems like a pretty good gaff regardless of your disposition towards baked beans and Countdown.

Dublin, Navan Road – €425,000

A detached house… in central Dublin. Something of a rarity. The property is located in the Cabra area in the north of the city and has a large amount of floor space.

It comes with three double bedrooms and a number of bespoke features including porcelain flooring, a Belfast sink and a feature fireplace.

This property is also in close proximity to the Phoenix Park as well as a number of good secondary and primary schools.

Under €750,000

Cork, Douglas – €600,000

If you find street numbers distasteful and want a property with its own name – then look no further.

‘Hillcrest’, in Co Cork, comes “in immaculate condition incorporating many expensive extras”. A big part of this property’s appeal is the landscaped gardens and its west facing sun-trap patio.

The detached home comes with four bedrooms as well as a number of spacious living areas.

Under €1 million

Co Kildare, Maynooth – €925,000

This house, known as ‘The Emily, Queen of the Range’, is built over almost 4,000 sq. ft. and comes with six bedrooms. The property will appeal to buyers looking for something a bit more grandiose.

In the property’s description, it is said to be “a timeless haven of luxury”. Features that are emphasised are its proximity to Dublin and its historical importance being the home of the Dukes of Leinster.

The home also boasts proximity to the River Rye and the golf courses of Carton House.
