Imposing 8 bedroom, 6 bathroom, 3 storey detached property known as 'Avoca House B&B centrally located in Durrus village - gateway to the Mizen and Sheepshead Peninsulas. This property successfully traded as an Irish Tourist Board approved B&B for several years and is large enough to be both a family home and a B&B/guest house/hostel. There is an opening for a hostel in Durrus to accommodate walkers of the ever increasingly popular Sheeps Head Way.
The property is located in Durrus village and is walking distance to the village's shops, bars and restaurants. There is a pre-school, primary school, playground, community field and church within walking distance and public transportation to Bantry and school buses to secondary schools in Bantry and Schull stop close to the premises. The sea is a 5 minute stroll from the property and the sandy beach at Toormore is 20 minutes by car.
Bantry is a 10 minute journey by car and Cork city and airport are just over an hour by car.

The property would be suitable for use as a B&B/hostel type business as there is currently no B&B or hostel in Durrus village. There is a demand for accommodation from walkers and cyclists walking and cycling the Sheep's Head Way as well as from other visitors to the area. The property sucessfully operated as a B&B until 4 years ago when family commitments forced the current owners to cease trading (babies!). There are 3 restaurants within walking distance so the B&B would not have to provide lunch or evening meals (if it didn't want to). There are 4 bars within walking distance - so there would be no need for guests to worry about driving or a taxi, etc. If the property were run as a hostel, public transportation passes the door 3 times per week.
