Clonakilty Townhouse ready to trade

A 1990s-built, yet traditional looking 14-bedroomed townhouse accommodation business in West Cork’s Clonakilty has a guide price of €600,000 as it comes for sale, all ready to trade: even the bedrooms are prepped for guests.

So says estate agent Henry O’Leary of the attractive-looking Clonakilty Townhouse on Wolfe Tone Street, which has been closed for the past season but “could be open for business with a new owner for this season; we are expecting a quick sale as it is one of the best built buildings in town, a great location and the beds are made up and it is ready to go.”

Purpose built in the late 1990s, the main street guest house is near the Imperial Hotel and close to SuperValu on the Cork side of the thriving tourist town.

It has underfloor heating, mains services, lift access, commercial kitchen, a dining room and reception, along with 12 double en suite bedrooms, two large family suites on the top floor, plus an owner/manager’s apartment across an arched entrance to off-street parking and a small sitting out area.

There’s some 7,000 sq ft in all in the property, which is expected to have a wide appeal given the Clonakilty town setting, on the Wild Atlantic Way.

The award-winning town 30 miles west of Cork city has a strong seasonal and weekend tourist trade, and is near Inchydoney beach which was voted Ireland’s best by international visitors on Tripadvisor.

The boutique-style Clonakilty Townhouse B&B itself has been a winner of Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence in 2012 and 2013 and was a winner in the “Best Small Hotel in Ireland” for 2014.
