Adrigole House is marked as a parsonage on the first-edition Ordnance Survey Map, published in 1845, but was in private use by the time the area was surveyed for 1896 second-edition. According to the National Inventory of Architectural Heritage it was built about 1820 and later extended. It's now 2,600 sq ft with four first-floor bedrooms. Also on the ground floor are two reception rooms - a living room and a study - along with a garage and chalet out the back. It's on six acres with access to the Adrigole River.

After the River Ilen leaves Skibbereen, it makes its way west towards the sea, but before it gets there it passes close to the grounds of Cape View, a detached dormer bungalow about a mile outside the town. The house has a floor area of 2,500 sq ft with five bedrooms - two at dormer level and three downstairs. The ground floor also has a living room, an open-plan kitchen and dining room, and a conservatory. There's a study upstairs as well. It's fitted with solar panels and has a B3 energy rating. The grounds come to an acre.

Until recently, Corthna Lodge was being run as a guesthouse. But if you want to have it as a family home, you'll end up with a rambling house with sea views on lush gardens just outside the boating mecca that is Schull. There are eight en-suite bedrooms in total, along with an expensively kitted out kitchen, two living rooms, a dining room and a conservatory with French doors to the garden. There's a gym and two log cabins, one contains a sauna. The town of Schull is about a kilometre away to the east.

Orchard Cottage is on an acre of gardens with fruit trees, lawns, wild flowers, shrubs and mature trees. The property, about six kilometres northeast of Skibbereen also includes a studio and other outbuildings. The house itself is a traditional stone-built farmhouse measuring about 1,140 sq ft, with two bedrooms on the first floor. The ground floor has a kitchen with separate utility room. A couple of steps lead down from the kitchen into the dining room and from there you reach a living room and a south-facing sun room.
