Great savings well done, wish i had been like you, spent all my money on holidays, cars, lunches and white wine. I really do regret it. I was getting a fab salary and i blew it all. If it wasnt for a bit of luck i wouldnt have been able to get my first home, it was the help of a very generous credit union. If I was you I would head to areas like bray, sally noggin monkstown farm, buy a ex council house and do it up a bit. keep on saving and watching what comes up, you are so close to dun laoghaire, the dart, the sea, the mountains, stunning area and the whole time you living there you can be plotting your next move. Good luck and you will have no problem.
