Óstan Thóraigh has been the centre of life on Tory Island for over 100 years, and once hosted Irish revolutionary Roger Casement as a guest.
And it remains the biggest employer on the Gaeltacht island, some nine miles off the Donegal mainland.
The property is being sold as a going concern by Sean Doherty, who is also Tory Island’s former lighthouse keeper.
Access to the island is by ferry, a connection that had been under threat until islanders reached agreement with the State over the contract last year.
Glen Estates is handling the sale of Óstan Thóraigh, which is priced at €400,000 — less than a three-bed semi-detached home in parts of the capital. Offers are open until Wednesday 31 July.
