This stunning waterfront site presents a fantastic opportunity for investment to any potential buyer.
Located approximately 1 mile from Durrus village, this c. 2.5 acre site is south facing and has direct access to the sea.

The unique location of The Old Forge affords idyllic views over Dunmanus Bay stretching out towards Mizen Head, while also being part of the famous Sheeps Head Way.
The opportunity to make this site a home as well as a functioning business will appeal to many looking to relocate and enjoy a very special slice of the West Cork coast.
It is equidistant to Cork and Kerry airports, both approximately a 1hr 30min drive away and benefits from a large passing trade generated from the Wild Atlantic Way route.
Closer to home Durrus, Ahakista and Kilcrohane are colourful vibrant villages offering great outdoor activities such as watersports, hillwalking and hiking as well as great local bars, cafes and restaurants. The market town of Bantry is just a 20 minute drive away with all the amenities you would expect, as well as, golf, sailing, horse riding, shopping and the historic Bantry House and Gardens.

Building Energy Ratings (BERs) give information on how to make your property more energy efficient and reduce your energy costs. All properties bought, sold or rented require an BER. BERs carry ratings that compare the current energy efficiency and estimated costs of energy use with potential figures that your property could achieve. Potential figures are calculated by estimating what the energy efficiency and energy costs could be if energy saving measures were put in place. The rating measures the energy efficiency of your home using a grade from ‘A’ to ‘G’. An ‘A’ rating is the most efficient, while ‘G’ is the least efficient. The average efficiency grade to date is ‘D’. All properties are measured using the same calculations, so you can compare the energy efficiency of different properties.
