Red Lodge’, Inchydoney is a distinctive 3 bed, sunny south west facing, period residence. The property has breath-taking views of the daily changes in water levels across the strand which add to its ambience. ‘Red Lodge’ is adjacent to the famous blue flag beach and within 4km of the popular town of Clonakilty

Some of the earliest surviving maps of the island refer to ‘Red Lodge’. The red painted walls, slate and chimney stack which give the property its unique character remain. The residence, set on grounds of approximately 0.6 acre, has been carefully renovated and extended into a house ideal for family living or as a holiday home. Reroofed in 2011, the property was further renovated and redecorated in 2017 with new central heating installed through a condensing oil boiler, all windows and external doors replaced, the cavity walls pumped for insulation while a new treatment plant was also installed.

The ground floor accommodation includes entrance porch, kitchen, open plan living area and sunroom which maximise the sea views. Upstairs includes three double bedrooms, all of which overlook the water and a family bathroom.

‘Red Lodge’ holds a unique position in the history of Inchydoney island. Built c.1845, the property served as the Quarry Master’s house for the building of the causeways to Inchydoney. The causeways were built as part of the famine relief projects which attempted to provide employment locally. The causeways were constructed with ruble stone and dressed with lime stone which was quarried from various locations across Inchydoney Island and the mainland.
