Irish B&Bs bounce back from Airbnb challenges, says auctioneer Kerry
guesthouse, which follows another recent guesthouse sale in the same top tourist county for 1 million euros.
On sale with a price tag of £1.1million, Grove Lodge, country house style accommodation on the banks of the River Laune in the picturesque setting of Killorglin, the Ring of Kerry is home to Puck Fair, a international fame which resumes in August after a two-year break.
He is being guided at €1.1m by Donal Culloty of REA Coyne & Culloty, who recently completed the sale of Muckross, Killarney guesthouse Oaklawn House, another 10-bed B&B at €1m. He says he had more than 10 interested parties on this offer. Now it’s the turn of Killorglin’s Grove House.
The grounds are also an asset, says Mr Culloty (he sells jointly with Kerry Property Management) with attractive paths through groves of mature trees including oak, beech, holly, rhododendron and many flowering shrubs and other trees, including ginkos.
