Affordable Homes

Affordable Homes

Sixteen three-bedroom duplex homes are being offered for sale by South Dublin County Council under a pilot affordable dwelling purchase arrangement.  These homes are being made available for mortgage approved, first-time buyers only.

The affordable purchase price to be paid will be linked to applicant(s) income (and savings where relevant) and mortgage capacity - the minimum price payable will be €245,600 and the maximum price payable will be €285,300.

Please note that the deadline for applications for this scheme has now closed.

Purchasers will enter an affordable dwelling purchase arrangement with South Dublin County Council whereby the Council will be entitled to an equity share in the house equal to the percentage discount from market value. Click here to find out more information on the Kilcarbery Grange scheme.

The provision of affordable homes is a key part of South Dublin County Council's Housing Delivery Action Plan (HDAP), which outlines details of proposed social and affordable housing delivery for 2022-2026. During its lifetime, HDAP shows the planned delivery of 2,730 affordable homes across the County as well as 3,707 new social home.

The Kilcarbery development is just one site where the Council is working to deliver affordable homes in South Dublin County. The Council has put plans in the pipeline to deliver 620 new homes at Killinarden in Tallaght. The integrated mixed tenure five-year development is heavily weighted towards the provision of affordable purchase homes with 60% of the development is projected to sell for an average of €250,000 or less per home, with 20% to be delivered as social housing.

There will be future opportunities for affordable housing in the County which we will announce on our website and social media channels as they become available
