Here's the average price of a house in Drumcondra in 2017

The latest data from Daft.ie.

THE AVERAGE LIST price of a property in Drumcondra is now well over €400,000, according to the latest figures from Daft.ie.

Analysis for the third quarter of 2017 puts the average asking price in the area at €415,484.

The figure puts Drumcondra well above average for Dublin’s Northside. Overall, the mean property price north of the river is roughly €341,000, and Drumcondra is in the top quarter of Northside neighbourhoods.

However, prices here are still a good chunk lower than their Celtic Tiger peak of €568,000.

In total, the listed cost of property has risen by just over 65% in Drumcondra since hitting its lowest level in 2012/2013.

That might seem like a stratospheric increase – but it’s actually slightly lower than the all-Dublin-city average which is currently hovering around 70%.

In particular, Drumcondra is being outpaced by its neighbours in Dublin 7 and 3 – where neighbourhoods like East Wall, Phibsboro and Cabra have already seen prices hit twice their lowest level.
