€650K Lisney Sotheby’s International Realty (01) 285 1005
Dun Laoghaire properties don’t get much more central than this mews on Charlemont Lane. Whichever way you turn, it’s only steps from the main street, St Michael’s Hospital, the People’s Park, Dart station and the harbour with its four yacht clubs and marina.
The granite stone façade makes for a striking appearance, while an upstairs porthole-style window is a nod to the town’s marine heritage. Spread over 830 sq ft, accommodation includes a sitting room, kitchen/diner, utility room, bathroom and two bedrooms, one with a Juliet balcony overlooking a private courtyard to the rear.

Haven, Crosthwaite Park South
€1.2m Ed Dempsey & Associates (01) 288 0004
Dating back to the 1950s, ‘Haven’ is one of a small row of semi-detached houses that contrast with their Victorian terraced neighbours, among whose more famous residents include playwright John Millington Synge and Boomtown Rats frontman Bob Geldof. While in need of updating, Haven is a house of character with bay windows, mahogany fireplaces and a landscaped rear garden that’s positively regal. Inside there’s a living room, family room, conservatory, kitchen/diner and bathroom on the ground floor, with four bedrooms and another bathroom upstairs. It’s a five-minute walk to Dun Laoghaire pier and marina.
5 Cabinteely Drive, Pottery Road
€775k DNG Dun Laoghaire (01) 230 1616
No5 Cabinteely Drive looks like a different house from when it sold, according to the Property Price Register, for €500,000 in 2016. A subsequent renovation in 2020 has transformed the detached house into a swish modern residence that’s ready to walk into and hang your hat.
It’s been rewired, replumbed, insulated and had underfloor heating and triple glazing installed, giving it a toasty B2 BER. Spanning 1,453 sq ft, it has a living room giving on to an open-plan kitchen/diner with centre island and sliding doors to the back garden. There are four bedrooms and a family bathroom upstairs.
