Waterside location for apartment

LIVING right by the sea has its attractions and when the location is the inner harbour of Cork, then gales and blustering winds aren’t going to be a problem.

Built on the site of the old Club Hotel in Glenbrook, Co Cork, Glenbrook Wharf is a settled apartment scheme with a lovely, waterside location. And space-wise, this two-bed unit is also pretty good, with a large kitchen, the same size living room, two bedrooms and a main bathroom.

Facing over the water towards Cobh, (with the ferry just up the road), there are good amenities locally, with Douglas or Carrigaline for a big shop.

Jackie Cohalan of Cohalan Downing and Associates is selling no 8 Glenbrook Wharf and is open to offers in the region of €185,000.
