Cathedral Road, Cork City €90,000

They were generous with gardens, back in the day when houses were built along CorkCity’s Cathedral Road, up above Shandon Street. 

And, the houses on the left going up score nicely too with west-facing, decent back gardens and city views.The former TSB bank branch just above the junction with Shandon Street, with a very large site, is currently being done up as a private home, and above it again is the more modest-sized 725 sq ft No 225 Cathedral Road.

Guiding 90,000, Gillian McDonnell of Sherry FitzGerald,says there’s lots of room for extension behind.

VERDICT: a downhill stroll to the city centre.
