I’m looking at renovation properties in the Liberties/D8 area such as this one: daft.ie/searchsale.daft?id=428714
The houses are well built, but I have some concerns about the area after speaking with colleagues and also taxi drivers. Crime and anti social behavior appear to be real issues.
Some people I’ve spoken to really talk up the area and the ‘salt of the earth’ people. I’ve just hoping not to be mugged and have my future house burglarized on a regular basis.
I’ve never lived around there but the proximity to the city centre and historic and characterful area (Guinness, Christchurch etc, etc) are all pluses.
Long term if I move out, would this be rentable to families/good tenants?
