The market is going through somewhat of a transition with prices generally static but falling in some cases. Part of this is due to an increasing level in supply. There were 5,000 properties for sale in Dublin at the end of June, which is the highest availability since mid-2015.

Strong demand has continued throughout the first six months of 2018. Perhaps not surprisingly, premises situated within population heavy districts with large tourism traffic are driving this demand. Increased interest is also stemming from growth in bank lending to the sector together with non-traditional lenders providing additional options for propsective purchasers that were previously unable to secure funding. There remains an acute shortage of supply, particularly for well-located pubs.
