You Can Buy Two Islands Off The Coast Of Cork For Just €550,000


While we normally associate island-buying with winning the lotto, you can now buy two entire islands off the coast of Cork for less than the price of many houses. 

Carbery and Cold Islands are located on the site of Dunmanus Bay in the west of Cork and are on sale for €550,000.

The secluded islands offer 34 acres of land complete with a beach and floating landing pontoon.

There’s even a 4 bedroom house, Dormer House, with its own water supply and Septic Tank Waste Disposal System and with furnishings included.

The house sits on Carbery Island while Cold Island’s 4 acres are largely covered in rock and grass, complete with a seal and otter colony. 

The rear of the house has a separate Generator House and workshop. It is made of West Cork stone with a slated roof and handmade, double glazed windows.
