The most expensive homes in Dublin are all to be found along a small stretch of the Dart line as it hugs the coastline heading towards Greystones, according to a new price survey.

The leafy enclaves stretching from Lansdowne Rd Dart station to Killiney are where average asking prices are highest, the daft.ie Dublin Rail house price map found, while homes close to the Ranelagh station are the most expensive on the Luas network.

At the other end of the scale, Cheeverstown on the Luas red line are where the cheapest homes were located.

Similar sized homes close to Dalkey’s Dart station were the second dearest in Dublin with an average price of €690,000. Sandycove & Glasthule three-beds were in third with the cost put at €671,000, while there was not’t much to separate the fourth and fifth stations of Salthill Monkstown and Sydney Parade, where homes are costing €658,000 and €652,000 respectively.

Green line

The Luas red line is considerably cheaper than the others. All told properties near three stations – Cheeverstown, Fettercairn and CityWest Campus – all cost less than €200,000.

The property website took a sample of nearly 10,000 properties for sale between September 2014 and last September.

Some station areas – such as St Stephen’s Green and Heuston Station – had to be estimated because of the small number of suitably-sized properties sold.
