Like Stoneybatter before it, Kilmainham is quickly becoming one of Dublin’s sought-after places to live. Young families and couples are continuing to plant their roots in what was originally a seventh-century monastery. Just 30 minutes from Dublin’s city centre, and with all amenities on its doorstep, it’s an ideal spot to set up a family home. Here are three houses available to buy in Kilmainham now.
