Interest by Britons in Irish property still remains high despite the country's economic woes, it was revealed today.
Website searches by Britons for overseas property dipped 2.3pc between September and October this year, according to property company Rightmove.co.uk.
However, searches for Irish property in the period rose more than 8pc, with Germany, up 7.45pc, another country to buck the downward trend.
Cork had a particularly good month in October, with searches rising almost 32pc.
Rightmove's Robin Wilson said: "We expected lifestyle buyers to begin winding down their activity as their thoughts turn to the holiday season, but the increased activity in less obvious destinations could indicate there are investors out there prepared to start dipping their toes in the water again."
