Ideal for first-time buyers

CLAREVILLE is a small estate of Dutch bungalows in a great location just outside Cork’s city centre. A walk to town and the Lough in the other direction, it’s handy for UCC and the city.

Rooms include living and dining rooms, a kitchen, bedroom and bathroom on the ground floor, with two further bedrooms overhead.
