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 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.
