West Cork has always attracted international buyers. In 2019, 1 in 3 properties we sold at SF O’Neill was to an international buyer while the UK market accounted for 17% of our total purchasers throughout the year. With an end finally in sight for Brexit, it’s a market which we see growing in 2020 and beyond!

Sherry FitzGerald, Ireland’s leading estate agency and exclusive affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate, will once again bring its Irish Property Show to London on Thursday 23rd April 2020.   At the event which will be held in the offices of Strutt & Parker in Mayfair, we will be displaying a sample of properties from all across Ireland , giving UK purchasers an opportunity to meet property professionals from across the country in one day, and in one location.

Des O’Malley, Head of Sherry FitzGerald Countrywide said:

We have been running property shows in London on and off since 2002 but in recent times we are seeing continued interest in Irish property from the UK  We have over 1,700 UK clients registered with us and reports that  37% of London financial services companies choosing a post-Brexit base in Europe, have chosen Dublin is a very encouraging sign 

It’s not just businesses who want to relocate here from Britain. People will want to do so as they yearn to live in a more tolerant and compassionate country. Paradoxically, while businesses are being attracted to Dublin, many individuals and families moving from the UK will choose to live elsewhere in Ireland, in search of a contrasting quality of life so rarely found in the crowded world of the UK”

Con O’Neill, Director of Sherry FitzGerald O’Neill said:

” We work hard to attract international buyers. All properties we list are advertised internationally. We cover a market which stretches the length and breath of West Cork, from Clonakilty to Castletownbere. International buyers are rarely fixed to a specific location and we put a major focus on moving potential purchasers across West Cork thereby increasing the pool of purchasers for your property. The London Property Show is a unique opportunity to meet with active UK Buyers looking to purchase in Ireland and showcase our properties”
