Hegarty Properties are thrilled to offer The Trawl Door to the market. This is an excellent opportunity to acquire a well-presented commercial enterprise on the Main Street of Ballycotton. Ballycotton has become a major tourist attraction in recent years, popular for fishing, Lighthouse tours, well known cliff walk, numerous beaches near-by and yet only 15 kms from Midleton and 38 kms from Cork. The nearby Ballymaloe House & Cookery School renowned worldwide for its top class hospitality, fresh seasonal local food has set the standard for many years but it is not alone anymore. The excellent "Cush" restaurant was recently awarded a Michelin "Bib" and "Sea Church", a new music & entertainment venue was recently featured in RTE's "The Ballycotton Sessions"...not to mention numerous other welcoming & lively pubs. Another venture making waves is "The Trawl Door", a caf-deli & artisan food store with an integrated ice cream parlour that re-invented itself three years ago and has built up a strong reputation for homemade, delicious food & coffee.
Built in 1860, the building started as two residential houses but has since successfully hosted many businesses including a restaurant, grocery shop & post office. It is now for sale; after 15 years at the helm, the current owners are ready to retire and hand over the reins of this very successful business in the heart of the village.
This property includes a charming self-contained two bedroom apartment overhead with independent access, with open plan living area & large first floor decking area to the rear.
If living in a vibrant coastal village, working independently, having a relaxed lifestyle with stunning sea views are on your wish list - then this property could make your dreams come true!!
