This Dublin cottage is giving us serious DIY goals

Just picture it.

You’ve always been able to see the potential in things – that’s why you bought this shell of a house when it was no more than four walls and some hard wood floors.

But you’re a creative soul and you spent your evenings and weekends grafting, painting and tiling and you’ve pulled it off. And for a fraction of the price no less.

You live in this petite palace in Dublin’s creative quarters. Well done you.

Yes, this tiny cottage in Rialto is a dream for so many millennials. The cottage has been fantastically refurbished and upgraded to an exceptional standard. A charming hall leads to an open-plan living/dining/kitchen which has been cleverly designed to maximise natural light. A double bedroom, shower room and utility room complete the ground floor. A clever attic space has been opened up and is accessed from the living area.

This little beauty is situated within a short drive of the city centre and is just around the corner from the red line Luas Station at Suir Bridge and the amenities of Rialto village.

The property is being sold through Sherry FitzGerald and is priced at €235,000. It’s perfect for anyone looking for a ready-to-move-in-to abode.

HOWEVER, if the look of this cottage has merely inspired you to attempt your own, feast your eyes on this.

This little home on Meath Square, only moments from the above, is priced at only €149,950. Sure it needs a bit of love, but when you see what’s possible it’s easy to imagine.
