Killer Dwyer's former home on market for €595,000

The three-bedroom house in the south Dublin suburb of Foxrock was put up for sale yesterday at a price of €595,000.

The asking price is slightly lower than typical properties in the area, where similar properties can fetch up to €700,000.

Dwyer was arrested at the house for the murder of Elaine O’Hara, as he answered the door to gardaí, on October 17, 2013.

The murderer has been in custody since his arrest that day, a month after Ms O’Hara’s remains were found in the Dublin mountains.

The Cork-born architect is currently serving a life sentence at the Midlands Prison in Portlaoise.

He is in the process of appealing his murder conviction, however this is currently on hold awaiting a Supreme Court judgment regarding the State’s appeal of a High Court finding on its data-retention laws.

Dwyer is arguing that data gathered from his phone should not have been used at his trial.

This information played a key part in his conviction.

The house, at Kerrymount Close in Foxrock, has been placed on the market by Wyse Estate Agents.

It has been described as a “spacious three-bed detached family home situated in a quiet residential cul-de-sac in this much sought-after location”.

Viewings can be made only by appointment.

The “generous accommodation” extends to 159 sq m and has off-street parking to the front and side access to the rear garden.

The listing adds that the property “benefits from a large private garden to the rear”.

It also highlights how the property is “within walking distance of all amenities in Cornelscourt Village, Cabinteely and Foxrock”.

The property is also a short walk from Cabinteely Park.

The house was broken into a number of times around the time of Dwyer’s murder trial in 2015.
