Looking to buy a house in Ireland? We take a look at some locations in the US and Ireland to see how far $300k (€255.6k) goes in both housing markets.

The Irish are obsessed with chatting about two things - the weather (of course) and property prices. Although houses right now are in high demand it's still a major topic of conversation and no one loves to house-hunt more than the Irish. Meanwhile across the Atlantic, in the United States, it has been found that one-third of retirees dream of setting up a home in Ireland.

So here at IrishCentral, we thought it would be wise to see how far your money can go on either side of the Atlantic. 

Here we take a look at what you can get for $300k (€255.6k):
