This morning, someone in Dublin woke up 175,000,000 million euro, and wow gosh, we're sooooo delighted for them.

While we couldn't be more pleased that someone other than ourselves is now mega rich, we couldn't help but ponder on what we would purchase as our first big Euromillions spend. 

A luxurious holiday? A flash car? A mad expensive ostrich skin hand bag? Nah – top of the list has to be growing that property portfolio (or just starting one). We've been creeping around the internet, searching for our perfect habitats in Dublin (seeing as that is where the winning lotto ticket was purchased) and we have compiled a list of our faves that we will probably never be able to afford bu hey, it's fun to fantasize: 

1. Bayview, 17 Sutton Castle, Sutton, Dublin 13, North Dublin City – €1,250,000

You could buy around 140 of these stunning houses for your Euromillions fee.

On the market by Gallagher Quigley, this iconic 19th century mansion with sprawling grounds and a sea view is the perfect family home. It even has a spiral staircase leading from the garden to the exterior terrace where you have a gorge view of Dublin Bay.

This period home was once owned by the Jameson family – so it comes with some glam history as well as walk in wardrobes.

2. Horse Island, Roaring Water Bay, Schull, Co. Cork – €6,750,000

Where else is there to go when you want peace and quiet to count all your money? Why, your own private island of course. 

Now, we know we said we would keep all of our homes to the Dublin region, but with all those millions, chartering a yacht from Dublin bay to Schull shouldn't be too much of an issue. 

The island comes with a STUNNING main home, as well as six guest houses, so it's perfect for family to visit once you've had your fill of solitary island living. The views are breathtaking, and you could probably bride a Deliveroo guy to get the boat over with your order if you tip him well enough. 

3. Monte Alverno, Sorrento Road, Dalkey, South Co. Dublin – €7,500,000

The stand out feature of the house has got to be the stunning figure-of-eight shaped outdoor swimming pool that languishes invitingly in the back garden.

Other external features include an all weather floodlit tennis court and a Chinese garden that has its own waterfall and lily pond.

South facing bedrooms give a glorious sea view, and plant lovers can rejoice in their element with a chilled martini in the jungle of a conservatory. 

4. Arkendale, 6 Arkendale Road, Dalkey, South Co. Dublin – €1,950,000

This Georgian gaff had us shook from the very first picture. Sprawling high ceilings with original stucco work and big bay windows make this home the ideal modem house with original character. 

Currently it has some very interesting wallpaper and pastel carpet choices, a nod to the original design of the home. 

The feature staircase leads to the upstairs where there are five generous bedrooms, while downstairs resides a snooker and cinema room.

5St Georges, St Georges Avenue, Killiney, South Co. Dublin – €9,250,000

This GORGE property honestly has a whiff of Hogwarts magic about it. From the stunning turret to the stain glass windows, it's a marvel to look at. 

The home comes complete with a little church (gas) and the architecture is a nob to the Gothic revival in Ireland. 

The main bedroom has a balcony with panoramic sea views, and everything about it is just magic. 




We could spend an entire day thinking about all the things we would buy if we won the lotto.

So, when a €38.9m EuroMillions jackpot went unclaimed for the past few days, we were frantically searching our pockets for our tickets in the hope that we were in luck.

Finally, the winners of the massive sum have made contact with the National Lottery.

A spokesperson for the National Lottery told RTE that the winning ticket has been verified.

The winners are to receive their jackpot later this week.

The winning quick pick ticket was sold in Dublin on Friday, December 29. 

The winning numbers were 04, 08, 22, 23, 48. 



One lucky Irish lotto player is in for a very merry Christmas after ir was revealed that the winning ticket worth €5.4 million was sold at a newsagents in Dublin Airport this week. 

The ticket was purchased on Friday December 22, one of Dublin Airport's busiest days of the year. 

It's thought the ticket, which was bought in Terminal 1 arrivals, may have been sold to someone picking up a loved one, a member of airport staff, or even someone returning home for Christmas. 

In a statement, the National Lottery said: "We don’t know at this stage who the lucky winner of this life-changing amount is. But we can confirm the golden ticket was purchased in arrivals at Terminal 1 in Dublin Airport on Friday December 22nd."

"This was one of the busiest days of the year in arrivals and the ticket could have been brought by somebody coming home for Christmas, by a friend or relative meeting a loved one, or an airport worker.

"This is going to be a very special Christmas indeed for that lucky person.”

The numbers drawn were 5, 14, 28, 29, 32 and 38. The bonus number was 31.

Luck is clearly on the side of the Dubs, as the Lotto Plus 1 jackpot ticket was also sold in the capital.

The Lotto Plus 1 Jackpot is worth a huge €500,000.

We'll be dreaming of what we could do with that kind of cash for the rest of the day…



If you bought yourself a ticket for the National Lottery, you may want to scramble through your coat pockets in search of it

According to the Lotto, the ticket was sold in the north west of Ireland.

We all dream of winning the Lotto someday, and now one lucky Dubliner has woken up with a dream come true.

The National Lottery has confirmed that one overall winner took home the jackpot of €4.5m, and that the ticket was sold in Dublin, however they have not yet revealed the exact location.

In case you're still holding onto hope and haven't checked your ticket yet (are you crazy?!), the winning numbers were 2, 5, 12, 34, 41 and 47, and the bonus number was 29.

We were having a chat around the office to see what exactly we would do if we won that amount of money, and one of the answers was, 'buy an island'.

What would you do?!




One exceptionally lucky couple from County Meath are over €100,000 richer, after the pair had two separate Lottery wins in three days.

The pair, who are great-grandparents, won €10,000 on a Telly Bingo ticket, before winning a further €92,652  on Saturday’s main Lotto draw.

The couple put their amazing luck down to their son, who is deceased, as they believe he was looking down on them whn they purchased the Telly Bingo ticket on the day of his anniversary.

'We really believe he was up there looking after us,' they said at the National Lottery’s headquarters.

'It is such a coincidence that our wins came at this time.'

'On the day of Telly Bingo I had gone to my son’s grave to clean it up and say a prayer,' they told the Journal.

What are the odds?
