West Cork Property

West Cork is a place apart. It has a mild climate – an ideal place to rear a family. It is also very private with great beaches, shops, restaurants and pubs.

The surrounding coastal villages are quaint and unspoilt, with a wide range of water sports readily available.

Overseas purchasers especially from the United Kingdom are continuing to be enticed to West Cork by the attractions of glorious sea views, rural tranquility – and greatly reduced prices.

West Cork is almost a global brand, promoting its food, its relaxed way of life, walks and breath-taking vistas.

Apart from its indigenous strengths for local and Irish buyers, it has also had a draw for Europeans for several decades, and it’s as multi-cultural a spot as you’ll find anywhere on the island of Ireland.

Here, at Charles McCarthy Estate Agents, Auctioneers and Valuers, we have been finding the perfect properties for our customers since 1968. Established in business in Skibbereen for four generations, we are over fifty years in estate agency and auctioneering.

I recently sold my property in West Cork and engaged Maeve McCarthy. Maeve provided an excellent service. I was very happy with how the marketing, viewings and biddings were managed. Maeve has great commercial acumen and a very pragmatic approach. She was a trusted advisor and always kept me well informed on how the sale was progressing. She had a great turnaround time in respect of any queries that I had as well as keeping momentum by progressing the sale of my property. Maeve helped me overcome many twists in the journey as a vendor and helped the house achieve over the valuation amount. I would highly recommend her.

I highly recommend Maeve McCarthy as an Estate Agent. I interviewed three and Maeve stood out. She had done her homework and knew all of the intricacies of my property. Additionally she sat with me and went through the steps that needed to be prepared for the sale saving me time and energy. No one else did either. During the showings and sales process she was always very professional and there to answer any questions. She made the sales process transparent and easy. From my point of view she is the premier choice for Estate Agent in the West Cork area.

Brilliant service from super nice people. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Maeve McCarthy and the team were so helpful, straightforward and understanding. From the start, nothing was too much trouble and I found their high level of experience and knowledge extremely reassuring. Everyone was friendly and easy to deal with: excellent communication, always quick to get back to my queries and so on. It made all the difference. I felt they really went the extra mile to make the process as easy as possible for me. It was great to deal with a family run business and people who take a lot of care and pride in what they do. Thank you so much Maeve and all the team for making my dream move possible! I'm sure I could not have done it without you. From a very happy customer!
