The average price of a home in Ireland has been revealed

House prices in Ireland have fallen for the first time in three years in year-on-year terms, according to a new report.

The latest report found that house prices in the second quarter of 2023 were 0.5% lower than the same period in 2022.

The report also says that the average listed house price between March and June 2023 was €309,648, up 2.4% from the first quarter of the year.

However, it was slightly lower than this time last year and one-sixth below the Celtic Tiger peak.

Dublin prices were on average 0.6% lower than a year previously, with the city centre experiencing a 2.7% drop while Cork and Galway cities saw larger falls in year-on-year terms, of 3.3% and 2.1% respectively. However, Limerick city saw a price rise of 1.1% higher than a year ago.

The number of homes available on the market is also up this quarter, at just over 13,000. That marks a 5% increase on the same date last year, however, it still massively lags behind the 2019 average of 24,200.
