New homes schemes starting in Dublin: Selected apartments, duplexes and houses from Swords to Shankill

New developments, and the latest phases of existing schemes, in the north, south and west of the county, as well as in the south city

This overview of new and forthcoming residential developments in Co Dublin includes 48 schemes from Swords to Shankill, and from Cherrywood to Citywest. Most include apartments and duplexes, but houses remain popular, particularly in parts of Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown and in farther suburbs where new parks and neighbourhood centres are designed into the schemes. While some developers and their selling agents have not indicated prices, even for homes that are launching this spring, our survey shows few homes available below the threshold for the Government’s Help to Buy (HTB) or First Home schemes.

HTB is a tax-refund scheme designed to help first-time buyers reach the 10 per cent deposit required to buy a newly built or self-built home. The maximum tax refund is 10 per cent of the value of the property, capped at €30,000, on properties valued up to €500,000. The First Home Scheme (FHS) is a shared-equity scheme in which the Government takes a stake in your home in return for a percentage of the price of a property in a private development, up to a maximum of €450,000 in Dublin.

One-bed apartments at Chapel Hill in Kilternan, Dublin 18, are priced from €400,000, and one-beds at Seamount Rise in Malahide will start at €440,000. Three-bed houses at Aderrig in Adamstown cost from €450,000 and bungalows at Baile Bhuín in Oldtown, north Co Dublin, will be about €500,000, as will semi-detached houses at Ballycullen Gate in Dublin 24. Homes will also cost from about €400,000 at Kilcarbery Grange in Dublin 22, a joint venture between South Dublin County Council and Adwood Ltd, as part of the Government’s Rebuilding Ireland project. At the Dublin 4 end of the scale, penthouses at Donnybrook Gardens will start at €1.85 million, and townhouses at The Collection, on Shrewsbury Road, will cost from €3.75 million.
