Peninsula Properties is committed to providing a personal, professional and confidential service from the initial contact through to completion of the transaction. We are a specialised property services company and every client is important to us. Because we are an independent property company specialising and concentrating in a specific geographic region, The Sheepshea Peninsula, we are very knowledgeable about that region - to quote a client ...
"...Elaine Spillane knows the Sheepshead Peninsula like her own backyard!"
We are flexible and can give our clients a great deal of attention. Sadly, all too often, the 'personal touch' is lost in larger organisations and the client becomes just another 'cog in the wheel'. To quote a client .....
"...Elaine is a knowledgeable, professional realtor who offers personal service. She is willing to work through any problem with great patience and creative solutions..."
Peninsula Properties is owned and managed by Elaine Spillane, MIPAV (member of the Institute of Professional Auctioneers and Valuers) who has full responsibility for sales, valuations, rentals and property management.
Our Property services include, but are not limited to:
- land and property sales
- property rentals
- short term holiday lets/holiday cottage rentals
- property management
- building services
The Property Quest:
"When you have nothing more to say, just drive
For a day all around the peninsula"
An extract from the poem, 'The Peninsula' by the Late Seamus Heaney - why not take his advice and come drive around our Peninsula - the Sheepshead Peninsula - there are lots of properties for sale and we'd like to show them to you...
Peninsula Properties is aware that searching for that special property and going through the financial, legal and planning processes to close a deal can be a daunting experience - especially if you have not purchased a property before or if you have never purchased a property in Ireland. To quote a client ,...
"...Peninsula Properties made me feel in safe hands from the start and Elaine's practical advice and warm friendly service was a key factor in choosing to buy in the area."
However, we are here to guide you through the process and can provide the names of:
- surveyors & engineers
- BER (Building Energy Rating) assessors
- planners & architects
- accountants & tax advisors
- contractors, tradesmen
- painters & decorators
- interior designers
- landscape gardeners
- moving companies
If you are buying an investment or buy-to-let property, we can assist with:
- advertising & marketing
- bookings & rentals
- management & letting
If you are relocating here from another country, we can provide or source information, on life in Ireland and matters relating to taxation, employment, education, medical services, benefits, pensions, etc. If you are moving here from another part of Ireland, we can fill you in on life in West Cork.
Why not combine your property search with a mini-break and sample what the region has to offer?
Peninsula Properties can arrange discounted accommodation at Bay View Cottages in Kilcrohane for prospective purchasers travelling to West Cork to view any of our listings. If you'd rather stay at a B&B we can recommend several in the area.
For those interested in availing of what West Cork and the Sheepshead has to offer, we can arrange hill walking trips on the Sheep's Head Way; a guided tour of the Peninsula; a local archaeological tour or a sailing trip around the bays on 'The Merlin' (details on www.carberysailing.com). Bicycle rentals can also be arranged.
We look forward to hearing from you and helping you find your very own piece of ‘West Cork Heaven!’
