Appraisal

This prominently sited house makes a fine contribution to the streetscape of Castletownbere. The retention of timber sliding sash windows and the panelled door with fixings adds to the building's character, while the excellent craftsmanship of the fa├žade attests to the importance and prosperity of the town during the early twentieth century.
