Welcome to my blog!

This blog tells my experience with buying a house in Dublin, Ireland, and renovating it. 

I wanted to share everything I learned along the way, my misadventures and any tips and tricks!


Finglas - End of Terrace - 2 Bed / 2 Bath - €185,000

Type of Property: End of Terrace
Location: Finglas 
Rooms: 2 Bedrooms and 2 Bathrooms
Asking price: €185,000, this the current offer, however the bidder is waiting for the AIP to be renewed so the house is not yet sale agreed. 
Age of the property: 47 years (Built in 1968)
Floor area: 74 square meters
Public transportation: 1 Bus line (40 - 50 min by bus from my office). 

NOTES: This a turn-key property! Fully renovated (new window frames and electrical panel), with 2 spacious bedrooms, a great living room with a functioning fireplace, a modern kitchen and a big upstairs bathroom. 

Furthermore, besides moving the previous bathroom to the top floor, the current owners also built a smaller WC on the ground floor (which I call the 'Harry Potter bathroom' for obvious reasons).

It's also very sunny and the back garden is very well maintained!

Also, the Estate Agent was very friendly and he answered a lot of questions for me!
