Are you on the lookout for a new family home? The house-hunting process can be tough, especially with asking prices on the rise. According to Daft.ie’s latest house price report, property costs in Ireland have risen by 2.7% in the past three months. In Dublin specifically, the average asking price is almost €155,000 higher now compared to five years ago. With that in mind, we’ve had a look through various property websites to find three family homes for under €350,000. The houses below are all in turn-key condition and are located within walking distance of primary and secondary schools. Could any of them be ‘the one’?

Not only is there a wide range of local schools nearby, it also comes with ample parking and has no property management fees. What’s more, Dublin Bus routes 44, 17 and 118, as well as the Luas green line are within walking distance.
