Starter home: Youghal, East Cork €165,000

The sea should be almost within earshot of this East Cork two-bed bungalow called Robin Hill, at Gortroe, near Redbarn and Youghal.

In clean order and with about 1,300 sq ft all-in, it’s on a very well kept half acre of grounds, with two block-built sheds, plus decking.

Midleton estate agent Adrianna Hegarty guides at €165,000 and says the setting is tranquil, about four miles from Youghal, within a walk of a local national school St Ita’s and near also to Gortroe village.

VERDICT: Home to the garden-proud
