AND on the western side of the city, in the little village of Kerry Pike, a four-bed cottage, Alverna, is just on offer at €235,000.

The semi-detached house, which is in move-in conditon, is on the market with Humphrey Hogan and Associates and comes with a quarter acre of ground.

It’s a good opportunity for first-time buyers, says Hogan, and the house comes with a lounge, kitchen/dining room, two ground floor bedrooms, (one could convert to study/office use) and two bedrooms overhead served by a family bathroom.

The property comes with an attached garage and has been renovated and insulated over the past six years, says Hogan.
