We can probably all agree that Blackrock, Co. Dublin is one of the more salubrious addresses in the capital.

Its eponymous college is alma mater to presidents, ministers and judges. Its rugby prowess produced Leo Cullen, Brian O’Driscoll and Luke Fitzgerald. So it’s no surprise that anybody who can afford to would wish to live there. Residents are afforded a gorgeous park and nearby nature reserve, the Dart line, a top-class private hospital, upmarket village and shopping centres stuffed with restaurants and bars, and wonderful sea views.
