Allsop are the auctioneers taking care of the property, with the budget price surprising many, considering Daft.ie's recent report that the average cost of a house in Clare is €149,999.

Speaking about the upcoming sale, Elaine Tubridy, a local resident, said:

“Of course I’m shocked at the price – €10,000 is nothing to pay for a house.

“No matter what state the house might be in, it’s an incredible bargain.

“West Clare is a beautiful part of the county – this house is a stone’s throw from the Wild Atlantic Way and I’d shocked if it is not snapped up immediately.

“It is so close to all the beautiful parts of Clare, like the Burren and the Cliffs of Moher, it is an incredible bargain.”

The property is located near well-known Clare landmarks, including Donald Trump's gold course in Doonbeg, as well as the Cliffs of Moher.
