A number of Ireland’s top economists have warned that house prices will continue to rise in the coming years, particularly in Dublin. Speaking to the Sunday Independent this weekend, Stephen Kinsella, associate professor of economics at the University of Limerick’s Kemmy Business School, said there is no sign of the capital’s house price frenzy abating before 2023 or 2024.

House prices will continue to rise in the capital over the next two to three years. The growth rate of prices might fall but prices are still going to go up,” Kinsella said.
