New Dublin apartments from €310,000 in Lucan to €2.8m in Lansdowne Place

Capital’s new high-end properties likely to appeal to people downsizing or to international buyers looking for a Dublin base

There are very few affordable apartments coming up for sale in Dublin. Most coming on the market will appeal mainly to people downsizing or international buyers looking for a Dublin base – and perhaps to some better-off first-time buyers. Just one development, in Lucan, has homes for less than €400,000. Others coming on the market are all on the southside and cost from €450,000 up to €2.25 million.

Hallwell Green, Adamstown, Lucan, Co Dublin

Six one-bed apartments plus study have just been launched by Hooke & MacDonald in the final phase of Hallwell Green, a Hugh McGreevy & Sons development in Adamstown, Lucan. The 52sq m (560sq ft) apartments, where the added study is big enough for a single bed, according to the agent, cost €310,000-€320,000, and qualify for the State’s shared-equity First Home and the Help to Buy schemes. Hallwell Green is a mix of 44 A-rated three-bed duplexes and one-bed apartments, where all but these final six properties have sold. Kube fitted kitchens and Bespace built-in wardrobes come as standard; floors are wood laminate or tiled. They come with one designated surface car park and an annual service charge of €1,150. Hallwell Green is near Lucan Golf Club and three large parks. Buses link it to Adamstown train station and to Lucan village, both just over 2km away.
