Coachman's Inn is a hub for sport in West Cork

If you’re into your sports in West Cork, you’ve probably been into the Coachman’s Inn, north of Skibbereen on the main Drimoleague road, at Bauravilla.

It’s been run since the late 1990s by Richie and Sarah Fitzgerald, and has catered for participants in road bowling’s Ból Chumann na hÉireann national championships, and is supported by patrons of local GAA clubs such as Tadhg MacCarthaigh’s and O’Donovan Rossa’s, as well as featuring pool, darts and cards.

Now, the popular local bar, with five-bed private living accommodation on a profile roadside setting, is for sale, listed at €295,000 this month by agent Brian McCarthy of Hodnett Forde in Clonakilty.

He says the family-run business, in a 3,250 sq ft property, gets a strong local trade as well as that from tourism and passing custom, being only a few miles inland of Skibbereen and the Wild Atlantic Way.
