Hi Sbhoward.

This is a bit off topic so I've moved it from the shared hosting forum, but I will try to answer your question.

Dublin in an expensive city to live in, you could expect to pay between €500,000 & €1,000,000 for a 3 bedroom house depending on the area. you'll get a better idea on myhome.ie

In the past few years there has been a boom in the Irish economy and house prices have shot up and still continue to do so, some people speculate that this will stop very soon. For me Dublin is a great place to live and Ireland has the lowest rate of unemployment in Europe.

As an investment a house in Dublin is not such a good deal, the same priced house in London will get you double the rent, and Dublin has serious traffic issues. I'm not sure about other areas in Ireland. I hope this answers your question.
