Estate agents offering a house for sale in Cork city are hoping someone really believes in the adage "Location, Location, Location"

The tiny property is located off Barrack St on the south side of the city, is 2.44m wide and available for just €60,00 reduced from €75,000 when last offered two years ago.

The layout includes a small kitchen/living room, bedroom, hall and bathroom.

The house is in need of complete renovation but the "narrow site offers huge potential to someone with vision and imagination", according to Sherry FitzGerald.

"The location, behind St Finbarr’s Cathedral, is very central and has all essential amenities in close proximity, namely, schools, shops, bars and restaurants."

However, with mortgage repayments at under €250 a month, it may be a starter option for someone not happy paying €1,000 in rent.
