With properties both for rent and for sale in short supply, prices in the Killarney area have remained strong.

In fact, houses with the V93 eircode were, once again, the most expensive homes in Kerry over the past 12 months according to data published by the CSO Residential Property Price Index. The report shows that in the year to December 2023, the average cost of buying a home in Kerry was €242,000 up 5% from the previous year’s figure of €230,000
Nationally that figure now stands at €327,000.
The average house price within the V93 eircode region was €284,000, 17% approx. above the average price for a home within the county.
With supply levels at an all time low and with very little new construction in the pipeline, there is little sign of this changing in the immediate term.

Commenting on the market, Ted Healy of DNG, has expressed concern with the low volume of properties available for sale at present.
‘We have lots of interested buyers seeking property in the Killarney area but unfortunately, we cannot satisfy the demand at present. The past 12 months has seen us securing sales in record time for record levels.”

DNG Ted Healy will be launching a new development of townhouses in the Woodlawn area to the market in the coming months and report that demand is exceptionally high.
The expect these properties to sell out in record time.
And with construction due to commence shortly on another scheme of detached houses on Muckross Road, it is looking like a busy year ahead.
However, this will not be enough to satisfy the demand at present. Properties within the V93 area are highly sought after and in very short supply, resulting in strong prices being achieved.
So is now a good time to sell your property? Yes, according to DNG Ted Healy who is actively seeking properties for sale to satisfy their ever expanding list of buyers.

A brilliant big band sound will ring out in Killarney at the eagerly awaited annual charity concert by the Gleneagle Concert Band on April 28 at 7.30 pm at The Gleneagle Hotel.

The town band will be joined by guest artists from Pobalscoil Inbhear Sceine Choir Kenmare and all proceeds from this concert will be allocated to local causes – the Children’s Disability Network Team for South Kerry, Brothers of Charity Services Kerry, CanTeen Ireland and the Gleneagle Concert Band Music Education Programme instrument loan scheme.

The concert will cater for all musical tastes and will include military marches, classical music, jazz numbers, film music, choral music and vocal hits.

Gleneagle Concert Band Music Development Officer Vincent Condon said:
“We are delighted to collaborate with local charities and hope the public will come out in great numbers again this year to support this worthwhile fundraising venture.
The Children’s Disability Network Team for South Kerry, in partnership with Brothers of Charity Services Kerry, provides essential services to children and young people with complex needs and support for their families. CanTeen Ireland is a support group for young people between the ages of 12 and 25 years who have cancer or had cancer in the past. A large audience on the night of the concert will raise much-needed funds to support the wonderful work being done by both charities to empower and help young people who need support.
The band and choir musically are in excellent form and I extend an open invitation to music enthusiasts and all to come and join us for what will be an evening of great entertainment.”

The Gleneagle Concert Band has performed with distinction for former President Mary McAleese and President Michael D. Higgins on their visits to Kerry in recent years and has been proud ambassadors on tours to Germany, Holland, Sweden, Austria, Portugal, Paris, Lisbon, Monaco and Cannes over the past four decades.
Band manager Ciaran Lynch added:

“These are very exciting times for the band which would not be possible without the encouragement and support we receive from the political, business sector and general public in Kerry. This concert will be a highlight and a celebration of the voluntary work, community service and musical excellence that exists here in Kerry. “

Tickets are priced at €18 for adults and €12 for children/OAP and are available from the INEC Box Office, band members, Brothers of Charity Office 7 Countess Road Killarney, St. Francis Special School Beaufort, Pobalscoil Inbhear Sceine office in Kenmare and at the door on the night of the concert.
