Additional Information


A period property on an exceptional site, the cliff offers breathtaking views along Tramore's golden stretch of sands, all the way to Brownstown Head.

Extended to add a substantial accommodation wing, both building and site have obvious potential for a variety of uses, or simply to be remade as a prominent and unforgettable home.

The original core of The Cliff has all the hallmarks of a classic Irish period country house. It would have stood on its prominent site for more than a century, commanding views along the strand, and across the town and the bay. Perhaps the home of a wealthy merchant, or the country house of a landowner, brought to Tramore by the opening of the railway in 1853, the site alone would have made this a very special spot.

Over the years, the property has been extended and altered. There is a sun room off the original building to one side, and a large accommodation wing to the other. This brings the total number of bedrooms at The Cliff to twenty four, many with en-suite bathrooms.

The building had been in use as a Retreat, and where better to find a calm mood of contemplation than in such a breath-taking place. This part of the property needs upgrading to bring it up to today's standards, or you might want to start from scratch and create something truly spectacular to make the most of such an extraordinary site.

With that in mind, the period house is ripe for renovation, and, subject to planning, you can have a home to conjure with, whether as a period restoration or a contemporary classic. Overall there is 677sq.m (7,287sq.ft) on a c0.38ha (0.94acre) site.

One of the most special things about the house is its aspect. From many rooms, and from much of the grounds, you can forget the world around you, as you enjoy uninterrupted views of one of the most renowned scenic spots in Ireland's Ancient East

The current layout of the Cliff gives accommodation over three floors. On the ground floor, a central spine runs the length of the house, with a wide hallway in the original period building leading from the breakfast room / sunroom, past the dining room and on to the large kitchen to one side. On the other is a store room, office and very generous living room that opens on to an exceptionally spacious reception room. The former has French windows to a sunny patio, while the later has picture windows with views across the strand and bay.

Six bedrooms, four of them en-suite are on this floor. The next level has ten bedrooms, three in the original part of the house, plus a large study. There is also a substantial store room and utility room on this floor, in the original part of the house, which could be converted back to bedroom use to retain accommodation in the historic part of the building.

Eight further bedrooms are on the third floor, all of which are in the new wing. Views from this top level are sublime, giving a literal bird's eye view of the scene beyond. Some imagination is needed to complete a renovation of this, newer, part of The Cliff, but no imagination at all is required to fall in love with the setting and sightlines.


Set above the town of Tramore, just a five minute stroll away, The Cliff boasts one of the most extraordinary aspects in the area. Breathtaking views along the golden sands that give Tramore its name (literally Trá Mhór / big strand) reach all the way to Brownstown Head, famed for its variety of bird life.

With just under an acre of sun-soaked grounds, including a sun trap patio, and terraced lawns, The Cliff 's site has obvious potential for a significant family home.

Alongside the large, more recently added, accommodation wing, there is ample parking. The aspect is also pleasingly private, as judiciously placed boundary walls, and mature trees focus the attention on the turquoise waters below, and the marvellous vista beyond.

Once on site, find pleasing paths through a charming wrought iron gate, to a secret garden and lower terrace: a hideaway at the edge of the ocean. The Cliff offers its buyer an unparalleled opportunity to create a magical place to live in this exceptionally beautiful part of the world.
