Ballyferriter, Kerry €149,000

Sq m: 88 (950 sq ft)

Bedrooms: 3

Bathrooms: 2

BER Rating: G

It’s all about the views from this affordable Dingle peninsula spot — they’re priceless.

Carrying a guide just shy of €150k, this old-style two-storey three-bed traditional dwelling is on a site of 0.4 of an acre in Ryan’s Daughter countryside, and just name-checking the visual vantage points will get devotess of the setting slavering.

Try Smerwick Harbour, The Three Sisters, Ballyferriter village, Wine Strand and Dun an Oir, and Dingle a five miles spin away too.

Agents Sherry FitzGerald Stephenson Crean say the property needs work, and can be easily extended because of its site.

VERDICT: Beautiful outside, needing prettying and more inside.

Ennis, Clare €100,000

Sq m: 92 (1,000 sq ft)

Bedrooms: 3

Bathrooms: 1

BER Rating: G

A super-handily set home near Ennis development opportunity Our Lady’s Hospital has had a price drop to just €100,000 to get buyers’ interest piqued.

This mid-1900s three-bed semi-d is for sale with Kieran Murphy of Sherry FitzGerald McMahon who says it’s in a cul de sac off the main old Gort Road, within a walk of Ennis General Hospital and the town. It has a new bathroom and gas heating, but needs other updating now, but the price reflects that.

VERDICT: Well-built, but dated with mature gardens, garage and dog run ideal for hens. A nest egg.
