Second on the list is Ireland’s priciest property, Sorrento House in Dublin’s Dalkey, which has an asking price of €12 million with joint agents Lisney and Sherry FitzGerald.

Rounding off the top three is an A-rated new homes development, College Square in Terenure, which Savills are selling at €725,000. The appetite for new homes is apparent with similar schemes taking the fourth and fifth most viewed slots. At number 4 is Belmont in Stepaside, Dublin 18, which will shortly launch a new phase, and number 5 was Forrest Hill in Carrigaline, Co Cork, where a limited number of houses are still for sale for between €235,000 and €290,000.

Dalkey remains a draw with Tudor House and Dalkey Sound taking sixth and seventh place . Dating from 1845, Tudor House has a €3.5 million price tag with Sherry FitzGerald, while Crawford’s have reached sale agreed status for Dalkey Sound.
