The town of Dungarvan lies on Ireland’s southeast coast, in the county of Waterford. Dungarvan has a pleasant harbor that is dotted with sailboats, since mooring is free here. In town, Dungarvan’s main streets are lined with two- and three-story, colorfully-painted buildings whose storefronts house restaurants, pubs, and shops. The town also has a few medieval buildings—evidence of its long history.
The town runs right to the water’s edge, with streets that curve along the retaining wall above the water. Here you’ll find a number of small terrace homes as well as apartments, all with sea views. Across an estuary accessed via a bridge, there is another part of town with larger, modern homes. And prices are reasonable: Real estate agents list numerous two- and three-bedroom homes in the area starting as low as about $175,000.
