FAMOUS CRIME AUTHOR Agatha Christie wrote in the 1940s that the west of Ireland was a place where “common sense and an orderly way of life were unknown”.

While many will dispute that was ever the case – and things have changed a great deal over the past 60 years – the west of the country has always held a particular appeal for its untamed spirit and wild landscapes.

As a location to buy property, counties on the west coast can throw up a lot of value.

Here is our pick of the five best properties on view this weekend.
