What else could I get for... the €725,000 pricetag on this former hunting lodge in Leitrim

We take a look at what €725,000 would get you around the rest of the country.

FORMER HUNTING LODGE Shriff Cottage in Leitrim dates to the first half of the 19th century and has been refashioned for modern use.

The property’s living space is spread out across two floors, with its bedrooms located up a spiral staircase. The rear of the property holds its original cut-stone courtyard, a feature that sits amid the 70 acres of land the house sits on.

Its grounds slope down to Lough Gill and the estate has its own private jetty leading onto the lake.

Besides the main building, the home also has an annexed ‘Fisherman’s Cottage’, which serves as additional accommodation.

A big draw for potential buyers are the views out over Lough Gill and the Lake Isle of Innisfree, made famous by Irish literary giant WB Yeats.

The property in Co Leitrim is on the market for €725,000.

Here is what around €725,000 would get you around the rest of the country…


This property in Dublin’s Glasnevin has maintained its traditional façade and style while undergoing extensive upgrading and modernisation. Unusually for a property that is not a new build, it has a BER rating of A1 – meaning potentially big savings in energy bills.

Its location means that potential buyers would have no difficulty in renting it out. Dublin City University and its Mater Dei campus are just a short distance away from the home.

It is on the market for €749,000.
