Starter home: Donnybrook, Cork €220,000

Up and over the hills of Donnybrook, but only a short hike back to suburban Douglas and its amenities, is Greenvalley, where the three-bed semi-d No 23 The Green is up for sale.

It’s in a good spot there, says Paul O’Shea, of Sherry FitzGerald, guiding the modern home by a green and a cul de sac at €220,000.

No 23 The Green’s very clean, with guest WC, kitchen/dining, and nice living room with bay window and cast-iron fireplace, and its three overhead bedrooms (no en suite) have wood floors.

VERDICT: How Green is Greenvalley? A good semi at the price.
