Do you dream of owning a bookshop? You might find just the thing in Kinsale
Are you a bookworm with big, romantic dreams?
If one of them is to run an adorable bookshop in a scenic seaside village, a very unique opportunity has arisen in one of Ireland’s most popular tourist towns.
Located at No 8, Main Street, Kinsale Bookshop is for sale, complete with traditional shop windows and a sunshine yellow exterior.
The property, which is guiding at €495,000, includes the commercial premises on the ground floor and a spacious three-bedroom apartment with separate access upstairs.
While it’s in need of some modernisation, with a little updating the apartment could make a cosy hideaway right in the middle of Cork’s gourmet capital, just a stone’s throw from the Michelin-Starred Bastion restaurant and countless excellent bistros, cafes, and artisan shops.
There’s a small yard to the rear too where you could create a private outdoor retreat for the summer months.
“The property currently trading as Kinsale Bookshop is well presented and maintained throughout and has potential for expansion, subject to planning permission, as it has the benefit of a large open area to the rear of the property.” says the agent, Michael McKenna.
“The property is set in an area of niche businesses and restaurants with excellent footfall.”
