There’s every chance its southerly aspect played a part in naming the town land where the circa 45ac holding for sale is – Tooreenagrena, Trafrask, Co Cork.

One kilometre off the main Glengariff to Castletownbere road along the Wild Atlantic Way, this traditional holding on the Beara Peninsula may suit someone wishing to leave urban life behind and chase a rural idyll.

On the books of Hodnett Forde Property Services Clonakilty, this tidy little holding is situated on an elevated site with magnificent views over Bantry Bay.

There are a number of stone outbuildings and a three-bay hay shed to the rear of the property.


The lands are typical of the area, rugged and of mixed quality, mainly suited to grazing. Alternatively, the nature value of the property could be capitalised on depending on how current CAP negotiations pan out. Either way there are entitlements to the tune of €2,000 attached to the sale.

The house is located on a south-facing elevated site, over looking Bantry Bay.


The house is a traditional-style dwelling with a kitchen, living room, bathroom and bedroom downstairs with an additional two bedrooms upstairs.

Away from the house there is a selection of old stone farm buildings in the yard area and an old three-bay hay shed to the rear.

The house was fully renovated to a high standard in recent years.

Sales agent John Hodnett said: “The residence is presented in immaculate condition, it was renovated to a high standard back in 2015. There’s a new roof, new windows, new doors, the works. A new oil-fired central heating system and water pump were also installed as part of the renovation.”

This compact old-style residential land block is guided at €325,000.
