#WaterfrontProperty - A modern commercial property in a prominent location overlooking Howth Harbour is a snap at €600,000.

Harbour House is on Harbour Road at the heart of the North Co Dublin fishing village, located opposite the busy Howth Yacht Club.

The four-storey property comprises 336sqm of floor space, and is currently producing €40,000 from its current tenants.

And The Irish Times says the overall rent should increase to at least €63,000 once an additional second retail unit and an office on the premises are let.

The former Techrete site at Howth Harbour, bought at the peak of the property boom by the crisis-hit Glenkerrin Group, will not return to the market any time soon for fears of only making a fraction of the original cost.
The Irish Times reports that Glenkerrin Group's extensive property portfolio is now under day-to-day management by receivers at Grant Thornton, which is devising an asset management plan with NAMA and estate agents Hooke & MacDonald.
However the 6.5-acre former concrete factory, purchased in 2007 for a total of €62 million, will not be one of those sites put back on the market, as it is expected to only make €10 million today.
Architect Duignan Dooley is currently awaiting planning permission for a development of 250 apartments with a mixture of shopping, offices, leisure and a community centre for the site, adjacent to Howth village.
But there is no indication of when construction might start on the scheme should it be given the go ahead.

Three private islands off Ireland's west coast are now up for sale - with the cheapest being a snip at just €150,000.
Irish Central reports that the three islands are currently offered via the website privateislandonline.com which aims at the rich-and-famous market.
Mannions Island, in west Cork's Dunmanus Bay, is priced less than the average family home in Dublin. For €150,000 the buyer gets a four-acre island that's 60% fertile just 200m from the shore (the catch is that there are no buildings).
Further up the coast at Clew Bay in Co Mayo is Island Mor, a 70-acre gem with views of the Inish Gort lighthouse and Croagh Patrick, which is going for €902,000. The location is a popular one for celebs - John Lennon was once an owner in Clew Bay.
Last but not least is Mutton Island, a mile from Seafield Harbour in Co Clare and just 20 miles south of the Aran Islands. The largest of the three at 185 acres, it also has a storied history, with the first recorded human settlement in 548 AD. Price is available on request.

Coastal Notes Coastal Notes covers a broad spectrum of stories, events and developments in which some can be quirky and local in nature, while other stories are of national importance and are on-going, but whatever they are about, they need to be told.

Stories can be diverse and they can be influential, albeit some are more subtle than others in nature, while other events can be immediately felt. No more so felt, is firstly to those living along the coastal rim and rural isolated communities. Here the impact poses is increased to those directly linked with the sea, where daily lives are made from earning an income ashore and within coastal waters.

The topics in Coastal Notes can also be about the rare finding of sea-life creatures, a historic shipwreck lost to the passage of time and which has yet many a secret to tell. A trawler's net caught hauling more than fish but cannon balls dating to the Napoleonic era.

Also focusing the attention of Coastal Notes, are the maritime museums which are of national importance to maintaining access and knowledge of historical exhibits for future generations.

Equally to keep an eye on the present day, with activities of existing and planned projects in the pipeline from the wind and wave renewables sector and those of the energy exploration industry.

In addition Coastal Notes has many more angles to cover, be it the weekend boat leisure user taking a sedate cruise off a long straight beach on the coast beach and making a friend with a feathered companion along the way.

In complete contrast is to those who harvest the sea, using small boats based in harbours where infrastructure and safety poses an issue, before they set off to ply their trade at the foot of our highest sea cliffs along the rugged wild western seaboard.

It's all there, as Coastal Notes tells the stories that are arguably as varied to the environment from which they came from and indeed which shape people's interaction with the surrounding environment that is the natural world and our relationship with the sea.
