These three homes in Cork, Mayo and Donegal all have two things in common: the sea less than 100 metres away and a reasonable pricetag.
Has the warm weather got you craving a little outdoor space? What if you have the sea lapping up at the end of the garden? Never mind packing up the car to head to a mobbed (and definitely not socially distanced) beach, instead you can just bring a few kitchen chairs right down the shore.
These three homes in Cork, Mayo and Donegal not only come with an enviable location, but also have a reasonable price tag – all coming in under the €200,000. Take a look for yourself.
3 Coastguard Station, Moville, Co Donegal
Just up from Carrickarory pier on Lough Foyle, this 19th-century former coastguard station is now a terrace of homes. Number Three is currently on the market with three bedrooms.
It has a kitchen, living room utility and shower room on the ground floor, and upstairs are three bedrooms, one with a walk-in wardrobe. The house is undoubtedly in need of work but with that view, and just a short walk into the town of Moville, it has a lot going for it.
7 Sirius Warf, Cobh, Co Cork
One of the most iconic seashores in the country, this duplex apartment in Cobh, Co Cork has some pretty incredible views. The 70-square metre apartment occupies the top two floors with its own front door on ground level. The apartment has a large open-plan kitchen/diner/living room with a large window looking across the water to Spike Island.
Upstairs are two bedrooms and two bathrooms, as well as ample storage and parking out front.
Shoreline Cottage, Sraheens, Achill, Co Mayo
Nestled close the coast of Mayo’s Achill Island, this cottage has two bedrooms and two bathrooms. With the sea lapping at the end of the garden, it’s in need of a little TLC but could make for a beautiful seaside escape or full-time home in Achill.
If you’re thinking of keeping up this working from home malarky too, there’s a detached chalet that currently works as a granny flat with a bedroom, bathroom and kitchen, but could easily be converted into a home office space.
