c. 4-acre island in Dunmanus Bay.
Mannion's Island is located in picturesque Dunmanus Bay, very close to the shoreline and is accessible all year round. There is a small cove on the eastern end, which is well sheltered and is ideal for swimming and boating activities. It is within close proximity of the main land - the nearest point being approximately 300ms. In a small boat it takes just 5 to 6 minutes from the nearest dock to the island.
The island is approximately 4 acres with most parts being very fertile. There is no infrastructure at a present but it would be easy to erect a small windmill, which would generate enough electricity and there is a fresh water supply on the island.
Any building on the island would be subject to Planning Permission where the local authorities have the final say in such matters. (Cork County Council - www.corkcoco.ie)
From the dock, it is a 5-minute walk to the picturesque village of Durrus, which has excellent facilities. The nearest market town is Bantry and its only a 10-minute journey by car. Cork International Airport & ferry port are approximately 1.15 hours away.
