First Docklands Open House Day attracts more than 300 viewers

A unique event for buyers that showed what Dublin Docklands has to offer

More than 300 interested viewers attended open viewings in Dublin Docklands on Saturday (May 27th 2017). In spite of inclement weather, first-time buyers, people trading up, current owners and landlords and other interested parties availed of a unique opportunity to view 14 properties for sale throughout North and South Docklands. Docklands Open House Day was arranged by Docklands estate agency firm Owen Reilly to offer buyers a convenient way to review a range of properties in various apartment developments and on various streets throughout different neighbourhoods of Dublin Docklands. Properties on open view ranged from a redbrick terrace house in Ringsend and a two-bedroom apartment on Lower Grand Canal Street, both priced at €380,000, to a three-bedroom apartment, priced at €895,000, on the twelfth floor of Millennium Tower at Grand Canal Basin.

Estate agent Owen Reilly has lived in Docklands since 2006 and opened his estate agency firm in 2008 at Grand Canal Dock. With a unique insight into and enthusiasm for the Docklands neighbourhood, Owen Reilly and his colleagues were motivated to arrange Docklands Open House Day as a result of the great interest in Docklands and the many questions they are asked about all aspects of buying property in the area. Owen Reilly was very pleased with the interest shown by viewers who took the opportunity to view, not only apartments within their price ranges, but also apartment developments generally. He said: “We noticed many people just taking the opportunity to find out a bit more about some of the developments generally in anticipation of other apartments coming up.” He added: “We observed also current owners who very interested to view other developments and inform themselves about potential trading up or investment opportunities”. On another Docklands Open House Day, Owen Reilly said: “We perceive an appetite for information about Docklands and this is one way in which we think we can deliver that – we would hope to do it again in the autumn.”
