New Quay Real Estate is very excited to bring to the market this truly outstanding highly successful award-winning boutique style fifteen-bedroom guesthouse and adjacent cottage on the outskirts of the picturesque coastal village of Ballyvaughan just a stone's throw from Bishops Quarter Blue Flag Beach in one of the most sought-after locations on Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way. This fantastic property lovingly and meticulously maintained by its beyond dedicated owners can only be described as immaculate and second to absolutely none. As agents we strive to show properties in their best light and as such spend countless hours not only comprehensively snag-listing but physically assisting our clients in presenting their property for sale. This is one of those rare instances where we had not a single task to perform in this regard. The state of repair, the attention to detail, the gorgeous interior design, the top-class management and continuous investment have placed this landmark property head and shoulders above the rest and set a standard that other establishments can only strive to and in fact to call the property 'turn key' is an understatement. While the property is being sold with vacant possession it can be considered as a going concern as the vendors are prepared to assist in the transition and the passing on of the benefit of established and continued custom including strong and loyal relationships developed over 23 years with high-profile tour operators in Germany, Switzerland and Holland, amounting to a substantial amount of the business, should the successful purchaser so wish.
