We Have Found The Most Impressive And Beautiful House In Dublin

Alana Laverty

In terms of Irish property, this is probably as nice as it gets. 

5000 square feet of beautifully-designed property sitting right on right on Monkstown promenade with unparalleled views of Dublin Bay. 

Yep, it’s our dream home. 

But the €2.4 million price tag means that it’s painfully out of our reach right now. 

So for now… it’s just that – a dream.

The elaborate home was built circa 1830, was refurbished in the 1980s and was then updated again in the 1990s to a very high standard. 

Throughout the house great care has been taken to source the best of design and craftsmanship to create a wonderful juxtaposition of old and new. 

This gorge gaff is a landmark on this stretch of the seafront due to its unique projecting first floor bay window which offers incredible views of the bay.
