While prices can be prohibitive, it's hard to overstate the benefits of living close to the city centre and the Smithfield/Stoneybatter neighbourhood is quickly becoming one of the most popular spots for househunters.
A stone's throw from all the action but with a great community feel, we can see why a whole new cohort of young professionals have zoned in on the area.
Of course, finding the right property can be a challenge and while many of the older houses in the area need a bit of a TLC, a gorgeous modern new apartment has just arrived on the market.
Located in Smithfield Village, this one-bed one-bath is definitely what you'd call 'cosy' but it's got a great NYC loft feel with tons of light and exposed brick features.
It's also got...
*South-west facing ceiling to floor glazing
*A modern fully fitted kitchen with breakfast counter
*Double bedroom with double fitted wardrobes
*Fully tiled shower room with hot press
The Smithfield apartment has been listed for €205,000 and you can get all the deets here.
