Social Distancing the Wild Way!
Now may be the ideal time to purchase your perfect island retreat. Coonan Property have been instructed to sell the astounding piece of property that is the entire island of Duvillaun Beg. Situated off the coast of County Mayo, it may translate as ‘little black island’ but what we have is in fact over fifty-five acres of rich vibrant green that gives stunning views back over the west coast of Ireland and the infamous Wild Atlantic Way tourist trail. This plot is fresh to the market and will be sold by Online Auction on July 22nd, 2020 at 12pm.
The island is one of a cluster of Duvillaun islands, nestled south of the islands of Inishkea and was inhabited until the end of the 19th century. It is circa 2.4km from the mainland and is easily accessible by boat from Blacksod Pier. This location is a fine example of picturesque Atlantic coastline and a real sanctuary.
The short water crossing will bring you to the Gaeltacht town of Belmullet, which has a population of approximately 1000 (Census 2016). This big-hearted town is a well-loved host to our nation’s children during the summer months as they attend Irish language schools in the vicinity. Belmullet is also situated close to the famous Carne Golf Links, one of the world’s highest-ranking golf courses. The local area is extremely popular for those wishing to fish or partake in the host of water sports available. It is also an ideal location for people simply seeking solitude in a remarkable natural setting. Together with invigorating walks and a superb selection of food and drink establishments, you can enjoy the variety of amenities available, before retreating to the breath-taking views on your own piece of heaven.
With a reserve price of €200,000 (or just over €3,500 per acre) it is the perfect opportunity for any playboy, or girl, of the western world.
