Carbery & Cold Islands are situated on the south side of Dunmanus Bay, West Cork, on c. 34 acres with its own beach and floating landing pontoon.  New 4-bedroomed, 2-storey with own private water supply and Septic Tank Waste Disposal System.  Separate Generator House.  House finished in attractive West Cork stone.


The principal island, Carbery, has a new, 2-storey Dormer House that has recently been constructed.  Cold Island, just to the east of Carbery, is little more than a scattered rock outcrop of c. 4 acres with some grass.  It is also home to a Seal & Otter Colony.

Carbery Island is in the Bay but at its western end there are rocky ledges that give considerable protection to the island.  One the eastern end, there is a small sandy beach on which landings can be made upon at any time with the floating pontoon.  The newly built Dormer House has also been built at the eastern end of the island overlooking this sandy beach.  This house has recently been constructed and I am assured enjoys the benefit of ad complies with full Planning Permission, has its own Private Water Supply from a private well nearby and also a Septic Tank Waste Disposal System.

To the rear of the house, on the western side, is a separate, newly-built, single-storey Generator House/workshop.  The residence is constructed of attractive West Cork stone, slated roof and pitch pine, handmade, double-glazed windows.  The Generator House is wooden with slated roof.  There is also a deep water, swinging, heavy mooring just off the beach.

Polished, sprung, wooden flooring throughout.

Within the Generator House, which is timber built with a slated roof in keeping with the main house, is an elaborate electrical system driven by both 500AM Wind Generator and also a separate 37.5KRB heavy duty Generator driven by a 4-cylinder Petta Engine.  There is also a provision for the installation of Solar Cells to provide an alternative source.  The whole system appears to be quite sophisticated and well thought out.  Adjoining this are 2 tanks providing 500 gallons water storage for the private well, which has been filtered and tested and approved as for for human consumption.  There are proposals to fence off the area around the house in order to undertake some landscaping and tree planting.


There is a paved, stone pathway and Patio surrounding the house enclosed by a small, knee-high wall.  34 acres of good grazing.


Stove in Sitting Room and Stanley cooker in Kitchen heats the house.
