The nation's most expensive St. Patrick themed street names

Posted on Thursday, March 17, 2022

St. Patrick’s Day is here again and countless celebrations will be held throughout the British Isles and beyond, so much so that it’s estimated that 13 million pints of Guinness are sold worldwide each and every Paddy’s Day.

To help celebrate the day, estate agent, Barrows and Forrester, reveals the effect that this global popularity has on St. Patrick-themed street names here in Britain.

The firm's research revealed that street names including the word ‘Guinness’ command the highest Paddy’s house price, at an average of £335,000. The most expensive of them all is Guinness Drive in Wainscott, Rochester, which, with an average asking price of £425,000 must surely be the most expensive Guinness in the land.

Street names containing the word ‘Green’ have the second-highest average house price at £287,000, with the most expensive of them being Greencroft Gardens in Camden where the average house sells for a heady £6.2 million.

Next up are street names containing ‘Saint’ which command an average price of £280,000, the most expensive of which is All Saints Road in Kensington & Chelsea with an average price of £1.5 million.

Properties selling on roads with ‘Emerald’ in the name are home to an average price of £258,500, the most expensive example being Emerald Avenue in Fleet, Hampshire at £660,000.


‘Clover’ commands an average price of £247,500, with Clover Road in Altrincham, Greater Manchester leading the way with a sold price of £715,000.

‘Patrick’ comes next with an average of £239,000 and ‘Irish’ completes the list with an average asking price of £139,000.

James Forrester, Managing Director of Barrows and Forrester, commented: “While Guinness is the name of the most famous Irish drink in the world, it's also one of the most popular surnames in Ireland, stretching back to 3BC.

"In fact, it’s a name shared by some of the country’s most powerful historical figures, from owners of land to rulers of people. This heritage continues today with their namesake streets boasting the most expensive St. Patrick’s-themed homes in the land, even this side of the Irish Sea.

"So if you prefer your Guinness to be made of bricks and mortar rather than yeast and barley, you’re gonna have to pay a handsome price.”
