Rosscarbery – join the Maul

ROSSCARBERY – the place where Cork people go to retire. Or to holiday, or to visit for a bracing Sunday walk.

Either way, the town has a consistently strong pull, even in a downturn and with prices low and getting lower, there’s good reason to purchase that second home on the west Cork coast.

Jeremy Murphy of Jeremy Murphy and Associates is currently selling a three-bed bungalow called Ocean View at Maul, Rosscarbery for offers in the region of €225,000.

And at that price, it even has sea views as far as Galley Head and the countryside around.

On an elevated site, Ocean View offers 1,050 square feet of space divided into a good living room, spacious kitchen/diner, three bedrooms and a main bathroom.
