It said price inflation remained subdued, particularly in Dublin.
It said: "Despite ending a run of four consecutive monthly declines, the annual rate of price inflation continued to ease in the Irish residential market in March.
"Prices rose by 0.2% mom [month-on-month] and were up 3.9% yoy [year-on-year]. This represents the lowest rate of inflation since the price recovery began in 2013", it said.
"Price inflation is decelerating across the country, but price growth outside Dublin (+6.8% yoy) continues to outstrip that seen in Dublin (1.2% yoy)."
While it added that growth in transactions was being driven by the non-household sector.
In the first quarter of the year, transactions grew by 4.5% year-on-year, with new home transactions up by 20% and existing homes up by just 1%.
The non-household sector accounted for 35% of new home transactions, up from 15% in 2018, and represented the biggest single buyer segment.
