In Dublin, €1,250,000 would probably get you a stylish apartment in Ballsbridge or terraced house in Ranelagh.
In Meath, it can buy you an enormous mansion and acres of green space.
Piercetown House in Dunboyne is currently on the market, and it's a total dream come true.
To start with, there's a swimming pool with TWO saunas, a games room, gym and tennis court.
If you're the equestrian type, there are also nine horse stalls, a tack room, a separate mews house and stable yard.
Inside, the house boasts seven bedrooms, seven bathrooms and four reception areas.
It's all decorated in a sumptuous period style and is like something out of a fairy tale.
Plus if you're working in Dublin, the property is just 35 minutes' drive from the city.
