Two 'Wild Atlantic Way' Properties Put on the Market

Two properties in the west of Ireland along the Wild Atlantic Way tourist trail have been placed on the market this week.

Westport House in Co. Mayo and the Cahernane House Hotel in Co. Kerry are up for sale for €10 million and €3 million, respectively.

Westport House (pictured) has been put up for sale by owners the Browne family as a going tourist concern. The 183-hectare site, originally built in 1730, has been open to the public since 1961 offering various attractions and activities.

The owners of the property delayed selling the property as they hoped the Government would buy the House. In a statement, the family said: "The Browne family has regretfully accepted that as a result of this inaction there is now no choice but to put the entire property at Westport House up for sale."

The four-star the Cahernane House Hotel in Kerry is situated just 2km from Killarney town centre. The hotel boasts 38 bedrooms, restaurant, cellar bar and tennis and croquet facilities.

Speaking to the Irish Independent, selling agent CBRE described the property as "a magnificent and historic property with the ability to further develop a luxurious boutique hotel business". The hotel is expected to generate significant interest from Irish and international buyers.
