Sick with no Job and 2 kids. Best to get a roof over your head ASAP before that €170k needs to be used for day to day stuff. No family in the Dublin and single Dad. Time for a new life where houses or apartments are cheaper. You need as little stress as possible.

Good luck !!!!

If they're holiday homes then you can only stay for a percentage of the year.

Thus although they may seem cheap for a house, they'll actually be expensive for a location that you can only live at for a limited amount of time.

Do you have any links about that?

Ive often noticed places like that and wondered what the terms were.

Would be specific to each site. 180 days/year max is the norm. It'll be noticed if you're there a winter, easily

The same agent is also selling 25 Rockfield Park, a four-bedroom detached villa-style house with a great viewing deck. Originally built as a holiday park but now having half its homes occupied all year round, number 25 was constructed in the early 2000s and is asking €450,000.
Hrm. Seems that some of them are no longer solely holiday homes. The holiday home estates are managed, but I can't find the T&C for people who own the houses, though.

That one in particular was never just a holiday home. I rented it for 2 years ending in 2010. Most of the rest of the estate were holiday homes at the time but there were never any restrictions on year-round use.

The photos on that must be fairly out-of-date though. We were passing by recently and popped in to show our youngest her first home (she was two when she left so has no memory of it) and we were quite saddened to see the state of the place. The deck would require some serious work to bring it back to it's former glory.

Its basically Darndale alone; and even then 160 is at the low end - one single one on Daft for 160, more for 170-180.

https://www.daft.ie/dublin/houses-fo...ublin-1957592/

And none for rent right now either; nearest ones are all 1800+

That house is likely to require significant refurb based on NO internal pics.

I am interested too - what health issues prevent you from working but not from working on a renovation project?

I noticed somewhere that you said you couldnt work as you had 2 kids and no help, but this is the case for thousands of working parents in the country. Its not a reason not to work.

If you are unemployed, how are you currently putting a roof over yourself and your kids heads and feeding them?

I cant understand how someone can be unemployed and have saved 170k

It's almost like they have some sort of past where they could have worked? Or inherited money...or... anything?

Yes, very smart assed answer, well it'd be difficult enough for most people to saved up 170k even working, and if not currently working for that to be chipped away, they did say they saved it, not inherited, so not anything.
If they are paying their ongoing costs out of it, then it will be chipped away at.
As for buying an investment OP, you'd be mad to do so,
