Irish house prices are expected to rise by 5% during this year - according to the latest report from

Growth will be stronger outside of Dublin - with prices in Galway set to rise by 12%. In the capital prices were down for the second quarter in a row, falling by 0.1%.

The average asking price for a house in Ireland rose by 7.4% in 2015, with the national average for a new home standing at €215,000.

Here's what that sum buys around the country:


Predictably, the average asking price in Dublin for a new home is higher at €275,000.

For the national average, you can buy this two bedroom terrace in Drumcondra, Dubin 9. The online description of the house admits that it is "dated by today's standards" and that it is in need of "some TLC."

Travelling north-west of the city centre this larger four bedroom home is available in Tyrrelstown, Dublin 15 for €220,000.


For €10,000 less you can buy this four bedroom detached house in county Mayo. It is described as being in showhouse condition, and having "wonderful unobstructed views over the countryside."

It is located on the northern fringe of Castlebar and features a large front garden.


In Roscommon for €220,000 you could live in this new to market four bedroom bungalow (with an office that could be used as an extra bedroom) - it sits on "a large landscaped site." The house is located north of Ballyhaunis.


This five bedroom house on one acre of land is available for €5,000 less than the national average in Eyeries, Cork West (just off of the Wild Atlantic Way).

The view looks good to us:


This new build just outside of Letterkenny is on the market for €220,000 - the 200 sq. metre house sits on a handsome half acre.


In Galway City, the same sum will get you this four bedroom semi-detached house in the east of the city.
