That's above the national average increase of 8.9%.
House prices in the midlands have jumped by nearly 10%.
The CSO analysed figures from November 2021 to November 2022, and found the regional increase is above the national average of 8.9%.
The average cost of a home in the midlands is €230,000.
Westmeath remains the most expensive county in the region to buy a home, with the average price €235,000.
Offaly is slightly behind that number, at €230,000, while Laois is the cheapest among the three counties, at €225,000.
However, prospective home buyers may want to take a trip to Birr, where a house can be scooped up for €180,000, the cheapest town in the midlands.
That's in comparison to Tullamore, which takes the crown for the most costly town in the region, where the average house price is €250,250.
The CSO also revealed house prices in the country have risen by 135% since the historical low, in May 2013.
