Dublin is currently dealing with the rise of property prices for this year. From residential to commercial properties, all are experiencing the rising rates and values. The residential ones are among the properties whose rates are on the rise today. According to a past report by, "Residential property prices in Ireland increased by 0.9 percent across the country in July compared to the previous month.

It is not only today that Dublin experienced an upsurge in property values. It was previously reported by that "Prices are up by 23 percent in Meath, and 18 percent in Kildare in the month of July." Also, Clare, and Roscommon are both up by 12 percent, while Cork City values are up by 12 percent of the same month.

The high rates of properties that the country is currently experiencing will not remain for long. It is not an end for the property prices since there will be moderation in the coming months. According to a recent post by, "The residential property prices are likely to slow towards 5 percent by the end of the year."
