Starter homes: Rosscarbery, West Cork €140,000

Sq m: 84 (900 sq ft)

A recently renovated mid-terraced home in West Cork’s Rosscarbery village has also had a slight extension — but still only comes to about 900 sq ft in all.

Right on the edge of the village by a beach, causeway and leisure lagoon, the Church Street house has been finished to a very high standard, says selling agent Derek Dorgan in Ballincollig, who adds that it is within a walk of the Warren strand, and the pier for fishing.

VERDICT: Lovely village setting for a starter home, a trading-down option, or a second home.
