Properties in high tourism areas are holding their value and a glance at the property prices quoted for coastal or scenic inland holdings show values in sometimes sharp contrast to those quoted and paid in places off the tourist trail.

Typical of properties in areas of high amenity is Kealfadda Bridge House, located between Schull and Goleen in West Cork.

With two stable blocks and guest accommodation on 23ac, the holding is on the market for €550,000. It is undoubtedly a tasty little place carefully renovated and developed with Teutonic attention to detail thanks to its German owner.


The property consists of a dwelling house with accommodation that includes three bedrooms, a bathroom and ensuite, a living room, an extensive sunroom and a kitchen dining area.

In addition, there is a guest cottage extending to 400sqft along with a 375sqft building that could be used as a study or an office.

The stables are finished to a standard at least equal to that of the house and guest area. The two stable blocks include 11 boxes, a feed room, tack rooms a machinery shed and a workshop with attic spaces finished and ready for use.

The 23ac are comprised of coarser, coastal upland territory, but the views make up for any shortcomings looking out across the waters of the Atlantic at Fastnet lighthouse and Fastnet Rock.

Auctioneer, Henry O'Leary would argue that the views from the property and the finish make it one of the more attractive rural properties on the market.
