There was a time when we skipped over the property pages in search of juicier content before we eventually saw the error of our ways.
It turns out NOTHING is as juicy as getting an insight into how the other half live – Think Cribs, but with less rappers.
Poring over the country’s most breathtaking properties has become our new favourite pastime, and while we’d struggle to afford a plant pot in the driveway, that doesn’t stop us from dreaming or crossing our fingers that the Euromillions €15,000,000 jackpot has our name on it.
Join us in salivating over these five properties, won’t you?
Ouragh Shrewsbury Road , Ballsbridge, Dublin 4
If you, unlike us, have €6,500,000 to spare, you may want to check out this little gem on Shrewsbury Road.
Touted as the quintessential Dublin trophy home, this property boasts four floors, six bedrooms, six reception rooms as well as a bar, gym and sauna – Yes, you read that right.
Girls, we give you Ouragh…
Glin Castle, Glin, Co. Limerick
We’ve always fancied ourselves as castle dwellers, so we are all OVER this Co Limerick find.
Not only does Glin Castle overlook the Shannon estuary, it also boasts 21 bedrooms and has its origins placed firmly in Irish history.
Dating back to the 13th century and set in 380 acres of parkland, we’d get a thrill just driving past this place.
Ladies, it's Glin Castle…
Westport House, Westport, Co Mayo
If €6,500,000 seemed excessive for the previous two properties, you may want to look away now.
Coming in at €10,000,000, Westport House is one of Ireland’s most historic homes and has a library that wouldn’t look out of place in Beauty and the Beast.
With views overlooking the lake, Clew Bay and the Atlantic ocean, the owners of this luxurious gaf would be literally spoiled for choice.
Have a sneak peek at Westport House!
Kilcooley Estate, Thurles, Co. Tipperary
While undoubtedly in need of serious restoration, there's still something about Kilcooley Estate that makes us wish we hadn't closed our Post Office account after the old Communion fund ran dry.
Maybe it's the ornate ceilings, the high stone walls or the fact that there are actual swans on the grounds, but this place has made quite the impression on us.
Ladies, take a look at this Tipp treasure.
Inniscorrig, Coliemore Road, Dalkey, Co. Dublin
Ladies, we’ve saved the best for last.
Inniscorrig, which costs a staggering $10,500,000, is the home we’d like to get our hands on if the Prize Bonds Nana gave us ever come up trumps.
Located on Dublin’s coastline, Inniscorrig has six bedrooms, a cinema room AND a lodge house in case you get sick of the sight of your stunning main gaf.
We’re going to pipe down now and let you see for yourselves….
