4 of a kind: The most popular properties on Daft.ie this month
Including the 18th century Wicklow mansion favoured by Bono.

EVERY WEEK, we choose a certain theme and bring you four of the most interesting properties Daft.ie has to offer in that vein, be it four thatched cottages or four properties with heaps of parking space.

Regardless of theme though, some properties are always going to be more of a hit than others. Here are the four most-viewed properties on Daft.ie from February, ranging from a handy three-bed in Naas to one of the island’s most expensive homes.

Roundwood, Co Wicklow

Luggala, the iconic former home of the Guinness family, isn’t just a property: it’s several properties, dotted throughout a 5,000 acre estate, which includes a sizeable woodland area.

The Gothic-style, 18th century mansion is a sight to behold: facing down towards Lough Tay, the property is a masterclass in opulence, featuring battlements and crockets as well as imposing limestone obelisks to the front of the property. It’s a truly incredible estate that Bono once dubbed U2′s “inspiration”.

Luggala is on the market for €28,000,000.
