Michael Lavelle Estate Agents are delighted to be offering for sale this detached cottage on a c half acre site - and if you're looking for the opportunity to create your own dream home in a lovely coastal location - you will be too!

Rathcor is the lesser known side of the Cooley Peninsula! Situated away from the busier and better known areas like Carlingford and Greenore, Rathcor is the quiet cousin, if you will, of the ever beautiful Cooley Peninsula. And this property has a massive amount to offer...

This property is tucked away along a very quit little road: it's 15 km and 15 minutes from the M1 (junction 18) and also c 15 minutes' drive from Carlingford. Rathcor National School is a mere 550 metres away (maybe 1 minute in the car?)

This is a 1 bed 50 sq m compact little cottage, built mid 40's, on a c half acre site. Local needs? None! Massive refurb potential? Absolutely? Shore 200 metres away. What's the catch? No catch! Yes folks: this is indeed the opportunity that many of you have been waiting on.

By way of a little bit of local history, according to author, journalist, astronomer and photographer Anthony Murphy (, Rathcor beach is said by geologists to have been the place where the builders of Newgrange sourced the granite cobble stones which are interspersed with white quartz on the front of the monument. Over 5,000 years ago, our ancestors came to this spot to carefully select water-rolled granite cobbles which can still be found scattered about this remarkable rock beach in large numbers. Archaeologists believe they transported stones to Newgrange by boat, down the Irish Sea and up the Boyne River.

Murphy continues: Rathcor is a most incredible beach. it is little visited by humans - precisely because of all the stones there.There is a sense of something untouched down there - something that has remained the same for five millennia. A journey to Rathcor, to see one of the sites from which the Newgrange builders got their stone, will send shivers up the spine and give you goosebumps. You can almost imagine meeting one of your ancestors there, picking up stones ...
