Ireland's Most Expensive Houses
Most Expensive Houses in Ireland - 2020
SUMMERHILL, MARINO AVE WEST, KILLINEY - €8.5million:
At €8.5million, Summerhill’s stunning views across Killiney Bay is a big part of the hefty price tag. But as Ireland’s most expensive property of 2020, there’s plenty more bang for the big bucks.
The majestic Victorian Italianate mansion which dates to c. 1850, sits on 5 acres of lush private land and includes a tennis court, three golfing greens, a guest lodge, and gorgeous garden terraces.
Inside this palatial home you will find 7 bedrooms, 5 reception rooms, a bar, gym, games room, and a sauna will leave the new owner in little doubt that they’re living it up in the lap of luxury.
THORNDALE, 31 TEMPLE RD, DARTRY DUBLIN 6 - €5.6million:
Temple Road is one of Dublin’s most desirable addresses – And why wouldn’t it be? Elegant Victorian and early Edwardian homes with ample gardens and generous frontage are all a stone’s throw from the city.
It’s why Thorndale, with its superbly spacious reception rooms, four double bedrooms, and conversation-starting geothermal heating system, comes in at number 2 on our most expensive properties for 2020 list.
30 LANSDOWNE RD, BALLSBRIDGE, DUBLIN 4 - €4.5 million:
The buyer of 30 Landsdowne Road didn’t get much change out of €5 million for this impressive Victorian redbrick on Landsdowne Road.
But as a listed building with all its original features including cornice work, ceiling roses, sash windows, and conservatory lovingly and correctly restored and a master bedroom boasting adjoining dressing room and shower-room, it was a relative bargain at only €4.5 million.
CORBALTON HALL, CORBALTON, TARA - €4.45 million:
Any buyer would feel like a High King in this magnificent Georgian mansion in Tara, County Meath. Fully upgraded and refurbished, this home-gym, wine-cellar and-cinema-boasting villa sits on 358 acres of land.
And with four bedrooms, a garden cottage and a coach house, and apartment, friends and family can crash with the new resident without cramping their style!
Most Expensive Houses in Ireland – 2019
AUBURN HOUSE, MALAHDE - €6 million:
A lavish, 11-bedroomed mansion, nestled in its own woodland demesne in Malahide, Auburn House was picked up on the Irish property market for a cool €6 million in 2019.
But this sprawling late-18th century manor is the main home on an estate with four more luxury pads and rolling land that goes on forever. And the whole property deal was said to have come in with a final price tag of over €20 million. Sweet.
49 AILSBURY ROAD, Dublin 4 - €6.75 million:
Billionaire Dermot Desmond swooped in to buy this semi-detached Victorian House in Dublin’s swankiest address – because it was right next door to his! The Irish business tycoon had been giving no. 52 an extensive facelift.
Property rubber-neckers now suspect he’s going to knock through to the new pad to create another gorgeous mansion to match the one he already lives in further up the road!
RATHMORE, ADELAIDE RD, GLENAGEARY - €6.5 million:
This grandiose Edwardian cum-Arts & Craft style two-storey boasts several of its charming original features.
Sash windows, cornicing, coving and ceiling chandeliers add sparkle to the five bedrooms, two reception rooms and formal dining space that easily sits 10 for tea - Surely it must make the new owner feel like they’re the star of their own BBC period drama!
ELLERSLIE, 46 TEMPLE RD, DARTRY DUBLIN 6 - €6.25 million:
Another stately Victorian townhouse on Temple Road swaggers on to our list of the most expensive properties in Ireland in 2019.
No. 46, boasting six bedrooms, conservatory, games room with a bar, shower room and sauna, also has ample exterior grounds.
Extensive lawns to the back include a hard tennis court while there’s spacious parking for several cars in front of the grand stone steps to the front door.
Most Expensive Houses in Ireland – 2018
CLONMORE, 15A SHREWSBURY ROAD, DUBLIN 4 - €8.1 million:
A modern six-bedroomed mansion on Dublin’s most exclusive address, Clonmore has five reception rooms and seven bathrooms – No queueing to use the loo each morning for this new owner.
This sprawling crib also has a Jacuzzi to relax in after a day’s sport on the property’s tennis court or games room …or after you’ve walked from the last of the seven bathrooms!
ABILENE HOUSE, NEWTOWNPARK AVENUE, BLACKROCK - €8million:
The Department of Education were the big spenders on this sumptuous estate in Blackrock. The massive period mansion, though in need of modernization, sits on 2.94 acres and will likely be a new school to swell the number of existing schools in the area.
INNISCORRIG, COLIEMORE ROAD, DALKEY - €7.8 million:
This stunning waterfront, Victorian Neo-Gothic castle doesn’t just boast six rooms with a (sea) view, but also beautifully manicured Italianate gardens and its own functioning harbour.
Saunter down from the super-stylish decked harbour terrace to the separate tidal swimming pool or just to have a look at your fancy yacht. Because, let’s face it, if you can afford to splash out the near €8 million for this magnificent mansion, you can afford a fancy yacht.
LOTA, 26 COLIEMORE ROAD, DALKEY - €7.5 million:
Inniscorrig wasn’t the only plush pad on Coliemore Road that sold for several millions in 2018. A few doors down no.26, a spectacular Georgian pile, sold to billionaire founder and chairman of Kingspan, Gene Murtagh for €7.5 million.
Also enjoying dazzling views across Dublin Bay, this luxurious coastal property has a refurbished jetty and private bathing area.
