The number of homeowners in Ireland whose property is worth €1m or more has shot up, driven by year-on-year house growth of 9.4%.
The research shows there are now on average 12 properties sold nationwide every week that are worth €1m or more.
It also says that based on the 1.7m occupied dwellings, the combined total residential property value in the country is worth almost €392 billion.
At the top end of the market there were 2,686 transactions of at least €1m since January 2010, equating to just over 1% of the total market.
The highest concentration of property millionaires is in Dalkey with 609, followed by Blackrock (576), and Foxrock (540).
By location, the most expensive markets are all in Dublin.
The average house asking price in Sandycove is now €787,000, followed by Foxrock at €759,000, and Mount Merrion (€748,000).

Commenting on the figures, Ronan Lyons, economist at Trinity College Dublin and author of the report, said: "What is clear from the figures published in this report is that housing wealth is concentrated in urban areas.
"By connecting this with information on public spending, it is possible to see whether all areas are getting their fair share of public monies."
