If you’d love to live in this cool neighbourhood, one of these three homes might just take your fancy (one even has a bar in the garden).
Dublin 8 appeals to many as a place to make their home for plenty of reasons. Not only is it close enough to the city centre to feel like you can hop on a bus anytime it takes your fancy, there’s also so much in the local area.
The Phoenix Park is on your doorstep, while the area is known for its many cool shops, cafes and restaurants, perfect for weekend wandering. And while, like all of Dublin, the house prices can’t exactly be described as cheap, there are certainly more affordable options available than many other places.
Here are three currently on the market, all for under €300,000.
31 Railway Avenue, Inchicore, Dublin 8, €275,000
This two-bed terraced home is cosy and cool inside, with herringbone wooden floors and an exposed brick fireplace in the living area, and a small modern kitchen to the back of the house.
Upstairs, the two bedrooms have wooden floors and fireplaces, but the real surprise is in the back garden. As well as two areas of decking, an outdoor bar means that you’ll be the go-to gathering spot for all your friends.
8 Emerald Terrace, St. Catherine’s, Dublin 8, €275,000
Located particularly close to the city centre, at just half an hour’s walk, this Victorian two-bed home was built in 1890. While its interiors need an upgrade, the rooms are well-sized, in particular the large living room, and it has loads of potential.
Perfect for someone who wants to live in a part of the city steeped in history, sites including Kilmainham Gaol and the Guinness Storehouse are all nearby.
48 Rialto Cottages, Rialto, Dublin 8, €299,000
This charming two-bed cottage sits on a quiet cul-de-sac, yet the city centre is easily accessible by bike, LUAS, or bus. Downstairs it has a living area, kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom, while the attic space has been converted into a second bedroom.
A small private yard to the back of the house overlooks a green space, and the nearby canal provides a place for pleasant walks.
