House Prices

House prices bucked the trend in the rest of Inishowen by rising by almost 10% last year. The number of house prices sales rose considerably too so the auctioneers in Buncrana will be a lot happier than the auctioneers in East Inishowen.

The average house price of houses sold in Buncrana in 2013 was €115,000. In 2012 it was€105,00. So that’s a rise of a touch under 10%.


There were huge falls in house prices in other areas of Inishowen like Moville, Greencastle, Carndonagh, Muff and Redcastle. Indeed the falls were a minimum of 27% in a year with the maximum a fall of 45%.

With Buncrana so close by and part of Inishowen, one wonders why there is such a huge difference with Buncrana house prices climbing and house prices really slumping elsewhere in the peninsula.
