Roberts Cove Coastguard House Now On The Market

#RobertsCove - Less than half a million is the asking price for the old coastguard station at Roberts Cove in Co Cork, as the Irish Examiner reports.

Situated on the scenic stretch between Cork Harbour and Kinsale, the Roberts Cove house has a history stretching back almost 200 years to the end of the Napoleonic Wars.

Part of the first phase of coastguard stations installed around the Irish coast by the British Empire, Roberts Cove is one of the finest examples of its era, coming with its own private slipway and even a small beach.

Though long since decommissioned, the waterfront property retains its boathouse and access to the Celtic Sea along with the many interior renovations made by its current owner to make it a comfortable seaside residence – and comes with potential for further expansion and improvement.

The Irish Examiner has much more on the story HERE.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
