I’m bloody sure the last time I bought someone a pint it was 5.60.

I must be drinking in the wrong places.

A Property Guru ( :angry: ) on Boards.ie has asked for the source of the above figures.

Care to share or perhaps provide him with the details on this or either Thread?.

The Boards one is here:

I remember paying 2.50 odd in the late Nineties, but in punts obviously. Was this taken into account?

Update this for 2009 - and tweaked the numbers (as I couldn’t find the source for the original house figures) using:

Because the number go back to 1983, did an extended version:

Looks like the price of a pint ‘never goes down’. Unlike house prices.

Can’t really buy 100,000 pints as an investment though…


#30

Wine though would be a good investment choice.


#31

So a return to equilibrium suggests we can expect another 50% off current asking prices.

That tallies with my view. Only question is how long will it take?


#32

Or the price of a pint goes up to €8.50… Whichever comes first… :nin


#33

I`m fairly sure there are places in this town where you would be charged not too far off 8.50.


#34

It might not appear very scientific, but just follow the line down until it reaches the long term (real) trend and see what date you hit. I make it sometime in early 2013.
