Rathmichael site for 10 detached houses on market for €3m

Site extending to 7.6 acres is within grounds of Shankill House

A ready-to-go site for 10 substantial houses in the south Dublin suburb of Rathmichael is quoting €3 million through agent Savills.

The site, which extends to 7.6 acres, comes with permission for 10 five-bedroom detached houses which range in size from 360sq m (3,875sq ft) to 480sq m (5,167sq ft).

This sale is within the grounds of Shankill House, a grand 19th century dwelling extending to 539sq m (5,800sq ft) off the exclusive Ferndale Road.

Shankill House does not form part of the sale. It last came on the market in 2014 for €1.5 million while its grounds, then extending to 7.3 acres, were offered separately for €2.5 million. Both were bought by the same purchaser and the house has since undergone some refurbishment.


A larger proportion of the lands (8.164 acres) subsequently came on the market in 2017 at more than €3.8 million but this site has now been reduced to accommodate better access to Shankill House.

The area, characterised by substantial houses on large sites, is within a five-minute drive of Shankill village. Transport links – such as the M50 and N11 – are close by, as is the Dart in Shankill and the Luas green line at Cherrywood.
