Matt O’Sullivan, Estate Agents are delighted to present the once in a lifetime opportunity to become part of this truly exceptional community and are offering for sale not one, but two, charming fisherman’s cottages overlooking Inishbofin’s famous East End Beach.


Oyster & Seagull Cottages have stood watch over Cloonamore Strand – a safe and sheltered Green Coast awarded beach – for over 200 years and have been popular self-catering holiday lets since the early 1990ies. Renovated and sympathetically upgraded by their current owners in 2010, they have direct beach access and sweeping views across the sea to Croagh Patrick – Ireland’s sacred mountain – and Connemara’s Twelve Bens. With their unrivalled location, beach access, spectacular ocean views and sublime sun-rises daily these cottages will be of interest to investors, holiday-makers and relocators alike. Boasting solid hardwood floors throughout, external insulation, half-doors front and back and OFCH, these light filled cottages sleep 11 between them (Seagull, seven; Oyster four)

Initially being offered as a single package, the sale includes a large private sun-trap garden to the rear with a modern service building with obvious potential SPP (comprising an outside toilet, washroom, store/games’ room and children’s den). Also included is a plot to the front overlooking the beach with potential to create seating areas and steps directly down to the beach.

Viewing by prior arrangement with sole agents only is highly recommended.
