120,000 Euros for an Irish Beach Hut

In yet another sign that the Irish property market is hyper-inflated and unsustainable a beach hut in county Wicklow has gone on sale, for 120,000 Euros. For that you get 1/6 of an acre, a timber framed structure with a felt foot and an outdoor chemical toilet. Oh and while it does face a beach it backs onto the Dublin-Rosslare rail line.

It measures 15 feet 6 inches by 12 feet 8 inches (4.7 by 3.9 metres) and is divided into two little rooms, one with a kitchen and a bed while the "living room" sleeps three, on a sofa and a divan bed, O'Grady said.

Check out the estate agents website for photos. You have to see this to believe it.
