About Us

Photography by Emma Jervis

Established in business in Skibbereen for four generations, we are over fifty years in estate agency and auctioneering. We handle all types of property – residential, coastal, period, agricultural and commercial. Due to our unique ocean side location on the gulf stream, coastal and holiday properties form a substantial part of our business.

Our offices are situated on Bridge Street in the town of Skibbereen – the capital of West Cork, servicing a huge hinterland, from The Mizen Head to Rosscarbery in the east, from Baltimore to the south and Dunmanway to the north. It is also the service town for the inhabited islands of Sherkin, Heir and Cape Clear.

At Charles McCarthy, we are committed to providing you with all the information you will need to find a home in the tranquil and beautiful countryside that frames the south west coast of Ireland.

The Charles McCarthy Team

We are the leading agency for West Cork properties and we pride ourselves in having some of the best staff in the profession. We look for the same three qualities as those which you are hopefully looking for in an agent, a leading expert in your type of property, considerable negotiation skills, and of course a strong sense of professional ethics.

The team members who will be specifically involved with your property are:
