OVER €15.5m worth of properties in Limerick city and county sold last month, according to the latest filings with the Property Price Register.

As listed opposite, 114 properties sold in March, and 389 have sold so far this year in Limerick.

Already figures this year are well ahead of last year’s figure for the same period.

The figure of 389 - which does not yet include all sales for this month - is already significantly higher than sales in the first quarter of the past five years, when records began in 2010.

Two properties in Limerick sold for over €700,000 in the past month, including Kilbane House on the Golf Links Road in Castletroy sold for €790,000.

The five-bedroom property, with three reception rooms and three bathrooms, was on the market for €795,000. It sold on March 10.

A house in Roxborough in Ballyclough also sold for €700,000 on March 6.

The transactions are two of the more expensive listings to go through the books for stamp duty purposes in recent months. However, the register is continually updated throughout the year.

In February 154 properties sold, amounting to over €10m in sales, and 120 sold in January.

Currently, on the property website Daft.ie there are 2,038 properties available to buy in Limerick.

New to the market through Sherry Fitzgerald is 7 Lansdowne Terrace, Ennis Road, a four-bed property for €490,000.

Brookfield House, Ballinacourty, Castleconnell, has also come to the market with a price-tag of €825,000.

Nearly 30 properties in Limerick currently have price-tags in excess of €500,000, and a number of those include blocks of apartments in the city which are for sale at the upcoming Allsop auction in Dublin next week.
