The price of the little blue cottage on half an acre between Clonakilty and Rosscarbery - 100m from the dunes from the mile-long Long Strand - has been reduced by €21,000, just ahead of summer.
With the lifting of some lockdown restrictions, new owners might be able to enjoy a staycation by the sea before autumn.
The cottage has two bedrooms, one bathroom, a kitchen/dining room and a sitting room, with 65sqm of living space in total. The bungalow is modernised, but prospective purchasers may wish to think about updating and seeking planning permission to extend.
In the meantime, though, the location is nigh on perfect, overlooking the grounds of Castlefreke, a walker's paradise. Long Strand is one of Ireland's best surfing beaches, and home to the Fish Basket, the kind of cafe you wish you could find on every beach.
There's no sea view, but you can hear the waves crashing as you drift off to sleep.

The number of first-time buyers is falling year on year. Blame the Central Bank rules, blame lack of supply or high property prices or any one of the current market's idiosyncrasies. But as a result, those wanting to get a foot on the ladder are having to think outside the box.
