You’d want a fairly decent stash to afford a gaff here.

Dublin’s most expensive street has been revealed and no prizes for guessing where it is.

The priciest row in the capital is Eglinton Road in Donnybrook, which has seen five properties change hands for €3.5million or more in the last year and a half.

The figures from revealed that Foxrock is the most expensive housing market in the country, with the average site valued at €872,000.

Mount Merrion, Dalkey and Sandycove also rank high on the list with prices averaging more than €800,000.

Outside of Dublin, Enniskerry in Co Wicklow is the most expensive, with average property values of €639,000, followed by Delgany at €490,000 and Greystones with €437,000.

In Munster, Kinsale is the most expensive location at €384,000, with Crosshaven at €294,000 and Bandon at €293,000 rounding out the top three.

Economist at Trinity College Dublin Ronan Lyons, who wrote the wealth report, said: “Unsurprisingly, the country’s housing wealth is concentrated in cities. Urban Dublin makes up less than 1% of the land mass of the country but is home to over 40% of its housing wealth.

“The other four cities bring the urban share to roughly half. This is normal and indeed probably less stark than other countries where greater populations drive greater land values in the most desirable locations.”
