When we asked expats in Ireland if foreigners are allowed to own property, they answered...

"Yes, foreigners are allowed to own property in Ireland. Non-EU citizens must obtain permission from the Irish government before they can purchase property in Ireland. EU citizens are allowed to purchase property in Ireland without any restrictions. However, all foreign buyers must pay the same taxes and fees as Irish citizens when purchasing property. Additionally, foreign buyers must also comply with the same regulations and laws as Irish citizens when it comes to owning property in Ireland," remarked another expat who made the move to Ireland.
