IF YOU’RE LOOKING for a challenge and aren’t afraid of some manual labour, one of these four fixer-uppers could be for you.

This week we’re looking at homes around the country that have great potential, but are realistically in need of complete renovation. From a farmhouse on 124 acres to a neat cottage in Clare, take a look at our fixer-upper finds…

Sneem, Co Kerry – €300,000

Located on 124 acres, this one-bed farmhouse is not for the faint-hearted. Dating back to the 1800s, the property was renovated and extended in 2008, and is now in need of repair. The lands extend up to the summit of Knocknafreaghane Mountain, and include outbuildings and a large pond.
