Auctioneera is delighted to bring the Half Door B&B to the market. Being sold as an ongoing concern or family home, the Half Door is an established business and is set in a prime tourist location in Doolin on the Clare coast and well-known Wild Atlantic Way. This five-bedroom property comes in turnkey condition with all furniture and fittings included in the price.
This quaint property has charm and character in abundance. As the property’s name suggests, its entry point is a classic half door that leads into a vestibule. The cosy reception area creates a welcoming impression upon entering the property. The large dining room has extensive countertop space and receives plenty of natural light from dual aspect windows, with an adjacent lounge area that includes wicker furniture and offers a perfect space for relaxation, with direct access to the garden. The galley kitchen has excellent storage and includes a wide range of appliances, while all aspects of the work triangle are within easy reach of one another. There is an enclosed rear yard accessed directly from the road through timber gates.
There are five bedrooms in the property, four of which are double bedrooms and one large family room, all with ensuites that include pressure-pumped, energy efficient showers. Each bedroom is beautifully decorated with colourful furniture, with orthopaedic support mattresses on every bed helping to provide a comfortable night’s sleep. The first floor bedrooms have timber walls and ceilings, with the landing receiving tremendous natural light from a skylight window and accessible by a split-level staircase. One of the first floor bedrooms has access to an external stairway. There is also a dedicated laundry room and utility room/private bathroom. The property has a basement area for additional storage. There is a south-facing garden with mature trees and large off-road parking area.
The property is located in the picturesque tourist village of Doolin, a spectacular area with captivating scenery and stunning attractions. It is less than a 15-minute drive from the iconic Cliffs of Moher, the busiest tourist attraction in Ireland, and is the starting point for the magnificent Cliffs of Moher Walking Trail. Doolin is the main ferry port for access to the Aran Islands. With a tremendous selection of pubs, cafés, restaurants and crafts shops, Doolin has retained a charming traditional Irish vibe. The village is served by a bus route between Galway and Ennis with multiple services daily and is only a short drive from The Burren and the thriving seaside resort of Lahinch.
This exquisite B&B is recommended in the world famous Rick Steves travel guides and the Guide du Routard. Currently, all business comes directly through the B&B website from these guides; and by using other platforms such as booking engines, this B&B has the potential to turnover in excess of €100,000 annually.
Viewing is highly recommended for this fabulous property, which would suit an investor looking to purchase a commercial B&B and would also be ideal for anyone seeking to combine a family home with a seasonal business.
