Here’s a chance to own a little piece of West Cork history.
Drimoleague’s adorable Parochial Hall is for sale, offering a unique opportunity to live in a three-bedroom, two-bathroom family home that has been part of the community for over a century.
Now listed at €180,000, back in its heyday, the Parochial Hall would have been the place to be at the weekend for the traditional céilí, usually overseen by the local parish priest.
Built in 1906, the red brick Arts and Crafts-style property has been renovated in recent years for use as a holiday cottage, but it retains its cute front porch and plenty of original character.
Inside, the ground floor opens into a cosy hallway, complete with wood-burning stove for ensuring a warm welcome during those chilly West Cork winters.
There’s also a shower room on this level and wood-floors in the kitchen and living room, which features a balcony, where you can sit and take in the countryside views.
Upstairs there are three good sized bedrooms and a family bathroom.
Perched on the edge of Drimoleague village, you won’t need to worry about feeling lonely – the pubs, shops and restaurants are a 300-metre walk from the front door, with some of the world’s most picturesque walking routes and fishing spots to be found just beyond.
