PICS: 5 Houses In Rural Ireland Worth €1 Million That Will Blow Your Mind
Forget about Dublin – the real value is in the beautiful Irish countryside
A million squids is a lot of money when it comes to buying a house, but you’d be forgiven for thinking otherwise if looking at what that sort of money gets you in Dublin.
Things haven’t taken off quite as much post-recession in rural Ireland though, and to inspire you all a little we thought we’d highlight five amazing pads around the country for that price.
All we have to do now is win the lottery or convince a kind bank manager to lend it to us.
That's the hard part.
One can but dream...
1. Bru Na Mara, Mace, Carna, Co. Galway
For €800,000 you're getting not one house, but rather five as a collection including a couple of cottages.
You'll be rewarded with some of the most stunning views in the country as well as plenty of privacy.
2. Cappanacush East, Kenmare, Co Kerry
Sitting on 2.5 acres of land with some of the nicest views in the country.
The house itself is a massive 4,300 sq ft and you'll have lots of privacy.
Will set you back €1.1 million. Yikes.
3. Kinnelargy, Downings, Co. Donegal
Coming in at just under the million mark this is a stunning house that has four bedrooms and four bathrooms.
What makes it so stunning is the design by award-winning architect Paul Brazil who has designed a modern masterpiece benefitting from an abundance of natural light
4. Kiljames House, Kiljames Lower, Thomastown, Co Kilkenny
Coming in at €950,000 you will struggle to get as big a house anywhere in the country for that price.
Comes with a whopping 10 acres of land as well.
5. The Gables, Balla, Co Mayo
Coming in at €850,000, you are getting a serious house set on 4.5 acres for that price.
Also comes with a large 1,350 sq.ft double garage and the house has been upgraded to give it a modern feel.
