Exclusive Dublin homes: Discover the finest properties on the market in Blackrock

Blackrock offers easy access to the coast, plenty of amenities and the city centre is reachable in less than 30 minutes.

IF YOU’RE LOOKING to live in Dublin, striking the balance between bustling urban areas and more relaxed, village living can sometimes be hard.

Blackrock on Dublin’s south side, however, matches the bill perfectly. With its stunning seaside location, a child-friendly park and a great sense of community, it’s an amazing place to put down roots in. 

You can grab a coffee to go on the bustling Main Street, head into one of the shopping centres located opposite each other and end the day in one of the diverse restaurants in the village. It’s got easy access to the city centre via public transport, including the DART and Dublin Bus. The N11 runs through the area and offers an escape to Wicklow and Wexford when you want to get out of the capital for the weekend or for the day. 

If that all sounds good to you, your next step is to visit Daft.ie, Ireland’s number one property listing site, which is the home of exclusive properties in Dublin. You can discover an array of the most high-end luxurious homes on the market in the capital, including those in Blackrock, on Daft.ie.   

To give you a snapshot of the amazing houses available in this neighbourhood, keep reading to see the best of what Blackrock has to offer.


We’ll start by checking out Avondale on Avoca Avenue, Blackrock. This home is spread over  558 m² of floor area, with five bedrooms and an astonishing seven bathrooms. 

Avondale is a timeless example of a refurbishment executed well. It marries old romantic charm with contemporary style. Upon entering, there is a seamless flow through the five gorgeous reception rooms into a beautiful bespoke SieMatic kitchen/breakfast room by Houseworks that is the home’s heart. It overlooks the rear garden, letting sunlight and nature seep into the home uninterrupted. The retained period features include the stained glass entrance doors, the hanging chandeliers and the original fireplaces, which combine well with more modern conveniences. The house is also perfectly situated on a highly sought-after road in south county Dublin, close to a wide range of amenities.

Four of the bedrooms are en-suite, including the main. Each is large and bright, with plenty of space for storage. The home basks in natural sunlight, thanks to a southerly orientation. To the rear, enjoy private gardens with manicured lawns. The garden is tastefully decorated with several statues that continue the luxurious motifs present within the house, and several sun loungers to soak up the best of the sunlight.

On sale through Lisney Sotheby’s, Avondale has an asking price of €5,950,000. 


Staying on Avoca Avenue, our next home in Blackrock is Aranmore. This detached residence has curb appeal in abundance.

The Victorian home underwent a comprehensive extension and renovation programme in 2008. It saw classic features retained and enhanced by more modern aspects. Enter via a flight of granite steps leading to a beautiful sheltered and columned portico front porch. The entrance hallway boasts two reception rooms on either side, complete with original aspects such as chimney pieces and shuttered sliding sash windows that overlook the grounds. On this level, you’ll also find a formal dining room with direct access to the rear garden and a large kitchen breakfast room again overlooking the stunning rear gardens. 

The 2008 renovation saw an extension added to the home, which is currently home to a gym/office, a utility room and a large living room. Overall, you’ll find five large double bedrooms in the house, including a massive main bedroom suite with a large walk-in wardrobe and ensuite. Heading outside, there is excellent off-street car parking for numerous cars to the front, protected behind electric security gates. Privacy is provided in the garden by granite walls and extensive use of box hedging and raised granite beds. A number of sheltered patio areas at the back are perfect for relaxing in the sun or dining al fresco.  

Aranmore has an asking price of €4,750,000 and is on sale through Lisney Sotheby’s. 

Windsor Lodge

Built in 1850, our next home contains a lot of history. Windsor Lodge is a beautiful period home, with a gorgeous facade.

The new owners of Windsor Lodge will appreciate the wealth of period features intact in the home, including ornate cornice plasterwork, original fireplaces, tall skirting boards and panelled doors. They’ll also enjoy living in this light-filled, well-appointed accommodation which extends to approximately 340 m². The country style kitchen/breakfast room, complete with timber painted units and gas coal effect stove, makes for the ideal hosting space, overlooking the garden to the rear. 

The garden is a particular highlight of the home, which has been carefully maintained by the current homeowner. Boasting an enviable west-facing orientation to the rear with scope for an extension on either side of the property (subject to planning permission) should there be a need to expand. Another impressive element of the house is the stunning sea vista over Dublin Bay at Seapoint from the main bedroom. The seafront itself is just a short stroll away from the front door of the property. 

Windsor Lodge is on sale through Sherry FitzGerald, with an asking price of €3,995,000. 

The Albany

We’re going even further back into the past with our next home, The Albany. This property on Albany Avenue was estimated to have been built in 1829. 

This detached Regency villa has spectacular sea views and great privacy on landscaped grounds behind large secure gates. The front of the property is a spectacle in itself, with landscaped gardens and extensive lawned areas, mature specimen shrubs, planting and a selection of trees with a mature Beech tree. The majesty continues inside the home, with large bay and picture windows with working window shutters bringing light into every room in the house. Period features include original wooden floors, magnificent fireplaces, high ceilings with fine cornice plasterwork and several elegant reception rooms. 

Three of the bedrooms live on the garden level, with a further two in the basement. There’s also three bathrooms throughout the home. The new owners will enjoy off-street parking spaces for up to four cars, with one EV charging point. Two outside dining areas enjoy the morning and evening sunshine, meaning you’ll be outside for the whole day when the sun is shining. Another secluded patio/barbecue area is found at the rear which enjoys a south-facing orientation and offers immense privacy.   

On sale through Sherry FitzGerald, The Albany has an asking price of €3,750,000.
