Described as one of Dublin’s “finest coastal properties” this 5 bedroom stately home with 1.7 acres of land overlooking Dublin Bay will set you back a mere €6 million ($6.4 million). The house has been on the market since 2015 and its asking price was recently slashed by a €500,000, so perhaps the current owners are open to offers?
This palatial house in one of Dublin’s most sought after areas was the most expensive property sold in Ireland this year, netting the sellers a handy €10.225 million ($11 million). But even though it’s only a short car ride away from Dublin city center, the property stands out because it comes with an acre of land. Something that surely helped make up the mind of bookmaking millionaire and Paddy Power boss, Patrick Kennedy, when he bought it early this year.
Or if you fancy a country estate instead of a suburban mansion, perhaps take a look around this 19th century house, complete with 180 acres of sprawling land, in County Meath. In total 80 of it is made up of parkland and ancient woodland, and the remaining 100 is profitable farmland. Yours for only €3.5 million ($3.74 million). Famous former residents of Bective Demesne include “Father of Polo” John Watson, one of the most famous equestrian sportsmen in Ireland, and the novelist Mary Lavin, who included Bective in her works, most notably her award-winning Tales from Bective Bridge (1942).
This thatch-roofed mansion in one of Ireland’s most famously beautiful towns overlooks the spectacular Kenmare Bay and Caha Mountains. It was built only five years ago by the current owners and as such has all the mod cons that come with a modern house, but still looks like old Irish country house. Valued at €2.75m ($2.94 million), who wouldn’t want their own getaway on the Wild Atlantic Way?
Renville House was sold a few months ago at auction for a cool €3.2 million ($3.42 million). And why wouldn’t it? With 135 scenic acres attached to the 200 year old residence, it provides stunning views across Galway Bay and is a short 10 minute trip away from bustling Galway city center.
