Ballincollig, Cork €115,000
Sq m: 70 (753 sq ft)
Auctioneer Garry O’Donnell of ERA Downey McCarthy reckons he has the cheapest three-bed home around Ballincollig on his books as he quotes €115,000 for 115, Carrig Lee. The mid-terrace home is a few minute walk to all of Ballincollig’s burgeoning services, as well as being close to the access road to the by-pass, and has the amenity Ballincollig Regional Park and the Lee almost to the rear.
The agent says it’s ideal for first time buyers, or a trader-down, and it is currently rented, producing €750 per month if there’s investor interest.
VERDICT: Handy location, gas heating and double glazing, plus a price drop to €115k make No 115 worth a view
High Street, Cork €140,000
Sq m: 83 (900 sq ft)
All done up on the inside, with several very nice feature fireplaces, is 3 Tonyville, a spotless and tidy-sized three-bed townhouse off Cork city’s High Street.

In all, there’s about 900 sq ft , with two reception rooms, kitchen, ground floor WC. and three overhead bedrooms.
VERDICT: Walk in, walk to town. It’s a tidy city buy.
