The back of the house opens out into a large dining area and conservatory with sweeping views across the harbor, pier, and village. There is a large patio area looking out to sea and a large garden offers endless possibilities,
The property has been a private home for the past few decades but was once run as a high-end quirky restaurant by its previous owners, referred to locally as "Ina and Peter's."

The guest list of former diners at this Crookhaven, West Cork home ranged from former Taoiseach Charles Haughey and President Mary Robinson.
