The most - and least - expensive places to buy near rail stations in Dublin
Published 30/11/2015 | 02:30
The price of easy access to public transport is revealed today as commuters pay a premium to live close to DART and rail stations across the capital.
Those living on the Dublin coastline and near to a DART station pay as much as €727,000 for a three-bed semi-detached.
Research by Daft.ie shows that commuters across the south of the city pay around half a million euro for such a property located close to train or Luas links.
The cost of a home only tails off south of Sandyford on the Green Luas line, and beyond Dalkey on the DART.
Along the way, homes cost €685,000 on average in Salthill and Monkstown, €690,000 in Dalkey and €727,000 in Sandymount. Properties on the DART line are cheaper north of the Liffey but command up to €519,000 in Howth and €537,000 in Malahide.
On the Luas Red Line, in contrast, property prices can reach half a million near the city centre but are as low as an average €138,000 in Cheeverstown.
Only a few areas near a Luas line in the west of Dublin are below the average house price across the entire city which stood at €306,540 according to the last quarterly Daft report, released in October.
The figures shown are average asking prices for three bed semi-detached properties for each of the stations on the DART and Luas lines.
The sample of nearly 10,000 properties for sale comes from the 12-month period to the end of September 2015.
