Site


Description

Enjoying a spectacular coastal setting between Newcastle Beach and a neighbouring nature reserve, this property has a rich history that will inspire a buyer with imagination and vision. The Cable Hut is closely connected with Captain Robert Halpin, the Wicklow-born mariner celebrated for his pioneering work laying trans-Atlantic submarine telegraph cables in the late 19th Century.

Call us to arrange a viewing of this very special property.
