Last year, Dublin was positioned 24th in the list. Dublin is now positioned alongside monster property markets such as Asia Pacific and The Middle East. Dublin is also the only European city to make it into the top 10.
Dublin had almost 18% in growth in 2013. This may be down to the property supply crunch and the strength of cash buyers, and also increased interest from international buyers such as China, Malaysia and Singapore.
Rena O’Kelly, director with Knight Frank Ireland, says the city’s inclusion in the top 10 “will undoubtedly throw the spotlight on Dublin from an international perspective, and while Dublin will never compete with the global interest for prime residential in neighbouring London, the report will educate a global audience of the nearby opportunities in Ireland”.
