The DART & Luas House Price Map: By Stop

We’ve pulled together a full DART & Luas house price map of the capital, showing the average asking price for a three-bedroom semi-detached home close to each station.

Commuters living on the Dublin coastline pay on average the most for a property, with homes close to the Sandymount DART averaging €788,000.

Homes near DART stations are among the most expensive with Dalkey (€716k), Sydney Parade (€716k) and Sandycove & Glasthule (€705k) completing a DART top four on the new map produced by

On the Luas, properties close to Cowper on the green line command the highest averages asking prices (€679k), while those living in the city centre pay most on the Luas red line with homes near the Spencer Dock stop averaging €663,000.

We also analysed the average asking prices for each stop on the new Luas extension. Properties close to the new Dawson stop came out on top, with an average asking price of €479,000.

Commenting on the data; Martin Clancy from said: “Convenience and affordability are two key concerns for pretty much everyone who lives and works in Dublin. This map gives a great overview of property prices across the capital and is a fantastic visual reference for anyone who is considering buying or selling close to the Luas or DART.”

Ronan Lyons, economist at TCD and author of the Daft Report: “The figures in this infographic highlight the value of rail infrastructure, with prices for properties closer to stations above those for comparable properties elsewhere. With the imminent opening of the Luas Cross-City extension, there are now 125 different rail stations in the Greater Dublin area. So, this report also shows the value in looking around and seeing if there are areas that offer good access to work and other amenities, by being close to rail facilities, but at a lower cost. For policymakers, the fundamental question remains how best to link upswing in properties, like those seen around the cross-city Luas, and the money invested in rail. A good property tax system can make that connection.”
