If you're looking for a deal on your own personal Irish oasis, a pair of Irish islands are on the market, and the asking price for the pair was recently lowered to $650K.
That's, what, the price of a one-bedroom apartment in Manhattan?
Whereas in Manhattan you'd be sharing walls with your neighbors, on Carbery and Cold Islands, located on the south side of peaceful Dunmanus Bay in West Cork, your closest neighbors would be a colony of seals and otters.
Carbery Island is the main island, and comes with a recently constructed two-storey Dormer House, furnishings included. The house has four bedrooms and comes with its private water supply and septic tank waste disposal system and a separate generator house.
Cold Island, just to the east of Carbery, is little more than a scattered rock outcrop of c. 4 acres with some grass. But it is also home to that seal and otter colony!
You'll get your own private beach on Carbery, complete with a floating pontoon dock. On the mainland, Dunmanus and Kilcrohane are the two nearest towns.
