Gubbeen Farm is a lovely property with its own access to a sheltered bay near Schull in west Cork.
The 77ac farm comes onto the market with a traditional farmstead in need of refurbishment.
Agents Sherry FitzGerald O'Neill, Clonakilty, are selling the property by private treaty and a guide price of €8,000/ac has been quoted.
According to auctioneer Ray O'Neill, the farm has oodles of potential.
It could be used as an agriculture enterprise, as a tourism enterprise, as a permanent residential hobby farm or a holiday home.
Located on the coast at Crewe Bay (also known as Croagh Bay), which is two miles west of the famous village of Schull, the property is laid out in three divisions.
Along with the old farmstead, there is a stone-built slated building with extensive sea frontage on to Crewe Bay, a walled orchard with some ruined buildings and a block of 50ac of land. The various sections of the property with buildings or ruins can be sold separately or the property can be sold as an entire.
