It is said that Winston Churchill was a frequent visitor to Westropp House as a child. The owner at the time was Moreton Frewen, Churchill’s uncle by marriage. He still owned it in 1911, although by then it was leased to the local GP, Herbert Sweetnam. Churchill people were very interested in it because of the fishing as the back garden is behind the Bandon River and there is a beautiful garden overlooking the water. The home itself is 3,208 square feet and is distributed over three main floors plus a basement with offices and shops. On the entry level there is a living room as well as a dining room and kitchen and there are five bedrooms on the upper floors (two with ensuite bathrooms).

The age of this end terrace house in the center of Taghmon village is conclusively testified by a date stone above a first floor window. It was built in 1736 by an unknown builder with the initials WB. There used to be a shop here as you can see in the photo and the shop front and door still lead into the old butcher’s shop. Elsewhere, the ground floor has two living rooms, a dining room and a kitchen. The first floor has four bedrooms and the whole thing needs renovation. Unusual for a village center property, it is set on over half an acre (.581) with lawns, mature stone walls and mature trees, and an exit to Stream Street beyond.

Castle Street in Cahir is lined with pretty early 19th-century houses, culminating in the dramatic 13th-century Cahir Castle overlooking the River Suir. No. 7 is well preserved but is distinguished from its neighbors by a peculiar small carved stone head on the front elevation, believed to date from the 15th century. Inside, it measures 1,758 square feet and also has a loft stone carriage in the back garden.
The kitchen and separate breakfast room are on the lower level and on the entry level are two reception rooms with original fireplaces and sash windows with shutters. There are five bedrooms on the first and second floors.
