Killarney-based auctioneer Tom Spillane has a c21 acre (8.50ha) parcel of land with a cottage going for public auction.

Located in the foothills of the world famous MacGillycuddy Reeks at the foot of Carrantuohill, the holding at Meallis, Beaufort, includes a 1/16th share of 999 acres of commonage (62.43 acres). This is fenced-in ground.

Set in close proximity to Cronin’s yard, the well-known starting point for many expeditions to climb Ireland’s highest peak, the traditional style single-storey cottage has electricity but is in need of repair and refurbishment. The public auction takes place at 3pm on Friday 10 February in the Royal hotel, Killarney.

The traditional cottage is in need of refurbishment but has an electricity connection.

Situated 9km from Beaufort village, it is almost equidistant between the towns of Killarney (18km) and Killorglin (15km). Guided at €300,000 overall, there are also 29.83 entitlements included in the sale.
