36 Dolphin Road, Drimnagh, Dublin 12

Hey,
I’m looking for some advice on an area / location where I’m looking at a house.
I’ve attached the link below. Your thoughts are welcome!

Last I heard the bidding was c. 10% over asking, and that was over a week ago.

Regarding the area, this house looks across the canal onto the back of Dolphin House flats, an area which has experienced considerable social problems in the past. I walk along the canal here frequently (on both sides) and have never experienced anything of note to worry about. The main thoroughfare in and out of the flats is on the opposite side, on South Circular Road, and all the buildings face in, away from this house. It wouldn’t bother me in the slightest, but others may have a different view of the area. This is why the price is comparatively cheap. It’s also on a main road which is generally fairly busy.

This would be a quieter option - myhome.ie/residential/brochu … 12/2634170
It’s bigger, but more expensive, and again bidding is already up well over asking.

Thanks for your advice. It was pretty much what I was thinking as well. I commute along that road every day, so I think I have a feel for it.
From what I learned, the price has gone up a lot over the asking price.
