This house in Limerick is in need of a serious facelift, and would suit a buyer looking for a bit of a project.

The home dates from the early 1900s and comes with a number of its original features. While located only a short walk from Limerick city centre, it also has expansive views of the Shannon River and King John’s Castle.

Something that could draw in potential buyers is the fact that it has come down by €115,000 while it has been on the market. The five-bedroom is available for €475,000.
