Irish-American Maureen Erde began running Barrow House as a guesthouse in the 1980s, and later recounted her adventures in 'Help! I'm an Irish Innkeeper' published in 1997. Barrow House sits on the water's edge at Barrow Harbour and has a private driveway by the sea. Built around 1750, it's been added to over the years, so that it now stands at 4,000 sq ft with two storeys over a raised basement and a converted attic. Inside there are eight bedrooms. It will be auctioned on March 16 at the Imperial Hotel in Cork.

Although it's described as dating from 1880, the old convent in Borrisoleigh is conspicuously absent from the second-edition Ordnance Survey Map, published in 1904. It was one of several properties sold by the Sisters of Mercy, and fetched €435,645 in 2001, according to local reports. The property consists of the 4,163 sq ft main building, with seven bedrooms and four reception rooms, and a chapel. There's also a 1,769 sq ft single-storey building on the grounds with four rooms. The grounds come to two acres.
