€619,000: That’s the average price of a house in Enniskerry, the most expensive area outside of Dublin
Enniskerry in Co Wicklow is the most expensive place in the country to buy a house outside of Dublin with average property values of €619,000.
And Wicklow as a whole is the second most costly with average asking prices of €333,000 – there are currently 579 properties on Daft.ie for sale in the county.
However, average prices are much higher in the north of the county, specifically in the Bray and Greystones areas, while prices in the south and west more keenly priced.
Currently in Enniskerry, long the home of rock stars and millionaires, there are 21 properties on sale, ranging from €325,000 for a three-bedroom house on Main Street to €12.5 for Chris De Burgh’s palatial pile, Bushey Park, which was the childhood home of his daughter, the former Miss World, Rosanna Davidson.
Meanwhile, Temple Road in Dartry, between Rathgar, Milltown and Rathmines, has overtaken Ailesbury Road as the country’s priciest address.
Three properties on Dublin 6’s Temple Road were sold for more than €2m each in 2019 and properties there have an average price tag of €5.5m, the research shows.
Ailesbury Road and Clyde Road in Ballsbridge are the next most expensive addresses, followed by Temple Gardens and Orwell Road in Dublin 6.
All of the country’s most expensive markets are in Dublin.
