This is a two storey detached family home located in Old Parish, which is close to Ring, Ardmore and Dungarvan town. It has a number of buildings on over two acres of land. All buildings have been renovated in the last 15 years.
The main house was built over 200 years ago but has been extensively renovated. It has three to four bedrooms. The Barn is converted into a four bedroom self-contained home. The old milking parlour has been converted into four rooms that have multiple uses. Ideal for a home office/business or for leisure usage. There is an old dairy that is converted into a self-contained apartment/accommodation. There are also a number of stables and kennels.
Rarely will a property of this calibre come on the market in this condition, with so many potential revenue streams. It has an abundance of character throughout and is a unique and exclusive property. This has been loved and nurtured by the current owners over the last twenty years. The outbuildings, barn and milking parlour have a beautiful stone frontage on all the external walls. The drive way into this property is very impressive and there is a large yard with a mini roundabout located in the centre to allow for a large number of vehicles using the property at any one time.
This property must be viewed to be appreciated. It is located in a well sought after location. Six miles west of the friendly town of Dún Garbhán (Dungarvan) and overlooking Dungarvan Harbour and Muggort's Bay lies the small coastal Gaeltacht area of Waterford. Nestling against the backdrop of the lovely Comeragh Mountains this Gaeltacht region embraces the Parish of Rinn Ua gCuanach (Ring) and An Sean Phobal (Old Parish).
It is a world apart, in its welcoming people, its scenery, its landscapes, seascapes and above all its cultural vitality. The love of Irish music, song, dance and language is infectious in An Rinn. A spontaneous desire to share tradition with the visitor can erupt at any time in any of the welcoming local hostelries. An Rinn is home to founding members of the internationally acclaimed Irish music group, Danú and world famous singer, writer and Irish folklorist Liam Clancy.
An Sean Phobal (Old Parish) is a quiet, undulating rural area between Ring and the lovely seaside village of Ardmore. Rising high above the sea, the land is interspersed with numerous quiet glens, running down to small, secluded beaches. An Caille Beara in Old Parish is a megalithic tomb dating from around 2,000 BC. Mine Head Lighthouse, dating from 1851 warns "ships that pass in the night" of the dangerous cliffs below while Reilig an tSleibhe (The Hill Cemetry) is a reminder of famine days in Ireland. You can draw inspiration from the colour, the culture and the vitality of this vibrant Gaeltacht.
An Rinn and An Sean Phobal have some of the most beautiful, unspoilt beaches in the South East of Ireland. An Coinigear in An Rinn, is perhaps the most famous, and when the tide is favourable, it is possible to walk out along the spit across Dungarvan Bay, practically as far as Dungarvan town, with spectacular views. The property itself is situated only a few minutes’ walk from a small, secluded, almost ‘secret’ beach set at the end of a beautiful country path.
Other beaches in An Rinn include Baile na nGall and the Cove in Heilbhic, a lovely secluded, pebbled beach near Heilbhic Pier. More remote and secluded spots include Faill a Staicin, a quiet strip of stand, accessible over a cliff walk, which is also a very popular spot for on shore angling. Baile Mhic Airt Strand in An Sean Phobal is less widely known and therefore an ideal place for a secluded picnic or sunbathing. The rock formations and coastal views from this strand are truly spectacular. Glenn Cairn/ Ballyquinn strand boasts miles of wide, sandy beaches.
