    The boom is back baby! NewBoom BoomBOOM

    Near a quarter of a million for a gaff the size of an average master bedroom and ensuite. Its this ****ology will see the whole thing overheat in time again.

    Cottage in Ranelagh for €220k. Wha?


    At just 25sq m/270sq ft this must be the smallest cottage in the village. Creative thinking required on the space front

    about 2 hours ago

    • Address: 8 Colliers Ave, Ranelagh, Dublin 6
    • Price: € 220000
    • Agent: Sherry FitzGerald

        It's "delightfully compact", as a feckin eejit once said about the mouldy flat converted out of one large living room that myself & herself rented back in the mid-90s. That craphole was actually bigger than this.

        EDIT - just clicked through to the article, and found this gem further down -

        Collier’s Avenue is a small cul-de-sac beside Sandford Park School. Many of the houses on this row of whitewashed cottages have been cleverly refurbished, including number 4, which went on the market a few weeks ago, also through Sherry FitzGerald seeking €525,000. Very tastefully refurbished in 2008, it was doubled in size to 86sq m, hence the sustantial difference in asking prices between it and number 8.
        Half a million. For this.

                Friend of mine was in a Cork Suburban Shopping Center last year and they had a replica Game of Thrones iron throne.

                It was €10 to sit on it.


                He posted about it saying.....€10 Euro to sit on the chair..... We're back baby!!!!

                It was like Celtic Tiger ****ology all over again.

                  It's in Douglas Court at the moment. It must be hard for the people not to laugh at the punters.

                      Think the only word of real significance in that cottage ad was 'Ranelagh'.
                      The fool and his money are oftimes so easily parted you would wonder how they ever met.

                        Bigger queues this year at weekends to get into Crescent Shopping Centre, 8 euro for two expressos in Dublin lately (having paid 1 euro in one of the oldest and most beautiful coffee houses in Porto at Easter).....I even hear De Bert rustling in the undergrowth.

                        We have learned precisely effin' nothing as a society, nuttin'

                          sorry, that's a little bugbear of mine that causes me to go off on one

                          This is the bit I particularly like about that Ranelagh shoebox

                          so basically there are 2 bedrooms and a living room

                            New car sales are down 10% on last year, with a big shift to imported used cars.

                            Commercial vehicle sales are down 13%, which is traditionally a bellwether for economic activity.

                            Hopefully we're not totally mad as a country yet!

                              After oscillating between 16 and 18 pages for the past month or so, the Property Supplement in the Irish Times surges forwards to 24 pages today.

                              We definitely live in Boomier times.
