Ah, housing… What €350,000 will get you in Dublin vs Roscommon

My home.ie is advertising two very distinct properties for sale in counties Dublin and Roscommon.

Both homes are being sold for €350,000. The price would seem to be where the similarities end however as the photos below reveal. 

This “charming and unique” property is located in the Rathmines area of Dublin 6 and boasts one bedroom and one bathroom. The property originally had a second bedroom which was “converted into a shower room” with the entire property spanning 27.87sq.m (300sq.ft) according to estate agents McGuirk Beggan Property. 

A total of €3,500 stamp duty is payable upon purchase.



This four bedroom, four bathroom property in Cloonshannagh, country Roscommon is also on the market for €350,000 and measures approx 1,940 sq ft and is situated on half an acre of land. 


A look inside the houses courtesy of images from myhome.ie reveals more detail of what prospective buyers can expect for their investment of €350,000, a considerable sum for almost anyone. 

This is the bedroom in Gulistan Cottages, Rathmines. 

In comparison the property in Cloonshannagh, Roscommon has four bedrooms – some of which are en suite. One of the bedrooms appears to have been converted into a gym by the current owners. 

Stamp duty is also €3,500.00. 

The kitchen/living/dining/laundry area in the Rathmines property are as follows. 

While the corresponding living, dining, kitchen and laundry area of the house in Roscommon look like this:

Moving on to the bathroom area, again the Roscommon home boasts a more impressive set of amenities. 

The garden spaces are also somewhat different as seen below, readers will surely be able to recognise which is which at this stage. 

This is what €350,000 will get you in Dublin compared what you’ll get in Roscommon.
