For this ambitious budget there’s a home with a pool in Kerry, and a stone-built news in Dublin 4.

FINDING A HOME that matches your budget without compromising your list of must-haves can be tricky, but we’re here to make that task easier.

Each week we round up a selection of homes currently on the market in Ireland around the same price point, giving you a snapshot of what a particular amount could get you.

This week, we’re looking at properties around the country with an asking price of exactly €675,000 – from an old rectory in Co Sligo to a mews in a swish Dublin neighbourhood.

Easkey, Co Sligo – €675,000

In Co Sligo, your budget will get you a six bedroom, four bathroom detached home with room for living space, a business, or even a family bed and breakfast. An old rectory, the building includes a wealth of period details, including high ceilings, wooden sash windows with shutters, fireplaces in each room, corniced ceilings and period wooden floors in the front reception rooms. 

The bedrooms at the front of the house overlook the Easkey River, and the home is just a few minutes walk to the ocean. The oceanside village of Easkey offers you convenience of a town as well.

Ballsbridge, Dublin 4 – €675,000

While it might not have the bedrooms of the old rectory, if you’re looking in Ballsbridge in Dublin with this budget, you’ll find a sweet stone mews with one bedroom and one bathroom. The bedroom is large, however, and there is the possibility to split it into two bedrooms. Subject to planning permission, you could also extend to the rear if you so desired. 

With exposed stone and brick walls inside, and a paved patio with southern sunshine outside, you’ll be able to enjoy the tranquility of your own mews within minutes of the hustle and bustle of city life.
