Three dream houses to buy in Ringsend right now

Famous for its twin chimneys at the Poolbeg power station, Ringsend is a great place to live if you want to be near Dublin City. The City Centre, Grand Canal Square and Sandymount Village are within walking distance, offering a wide variety of boutique bars and cafes. With the Aviva Stadium on your doorstep, there’s always a sense of excitement in the air.

All essential amenities are nearby; St Vincent’s University Hospital can be reached in just 10 minutes by car, while a mix of primary and secondary schools are dotted throughout the town. Meanwhile, Ringsend Park provides over 10 hectares of grassland for exercise, dog walking, and family outings. Its football pitches, playgrounds and evergreen trees make it functional all year-round.

Each of the properties below come with private parking, but public transport is available in Ringsend too. Grand Canal Dart station is a stone’s throw away and the area is serviced by Dublin Bus routes 1, 47, 56a, and 77a. Sound good? Check out these three dream houses below:

49 Ringsend Road, €575,000

This bright and spacious red-brick property would make a beautiful family home. With three bedrooms, one bathroom, an airy living room and a decent sized kitchen, it’s ready to move into. The house at 49 Ringsend Road also features gas-fired central heating; wood flooring throughout; and modern double-glazed sash windows. An attic room (which is separate from the bedrooms) can be used as a playroom for children or office space for parents. Meanwhile, the spacious south-facing garden out back is perfect for summer BBQs. According to Bennetts Estate Agents, new occupants can enjoy off-street parking and close-proximity to Dublin’s City Centre.

13 Bridge Street, €595,000

With three distinct courtyards and underfloor heating, you’d be forgiven for thinking Dermot Bannon designed this house. The red-brick terrace at 13 Bridge Street is bright and stylish, and it comes with a detached garage offering off-street parking. The house features three bedrooms, though one is currently being used as a den/study, a trendy bathroom, open-plan living room and modern kitchen. While obviously an old building, the house has been fully renovated by the current owners. It now has solar reflective privacy windows to the front, an integrated sound system, and double-glazed windows throughout.

59 Fitzwilliam Quay Apartments, €485,000

Okay, so it’s not exactly a house; but this corner apartment is too good to leave off the list. With dual south/west facing aspect and a large first-floor balcony, 59 Fitzwilliam Quay is a dream. Featuring two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a spacious living room and kitchen, it’s filled with natural light throughout. The place comes with one designated parking space and a view of the Aviva Stadium. Estate agent DNG says it’s currently owner-occupied and is in excellent live-in condition.
