We are an independently owned and managed auctioneering company and estate agency owned and managed by Elaine Spillane and based in the charming coastal village of Kilcrohane on the Sheep’s Head Peninsula near Bantry in West Cork.

We provide a wide range of services and aim to help you find that little piece of ‘West Cork Heaven’ with the least amount of stress or hassle.

Our services include the following:

The building and construction services are provided by Noel Spillane who has worked in this field for over 35 years and who has hands-on experience in the construction industries of Ireland, the UK, Germany and the US.


“The most straight talking honest agent in the country. Tells it as it is and allows client to make up his/her own mind. She gets to know the client’s needs and is astute in matching the client to the most suitable property. She pays great attention to detail and gives each client time - one never gets the feeling of being rushed. As Peninsula has focused on one area, namely the Sheep’s Head, the local knowledge encompassed in the company is enormous and unmatched. The communication from the company is excellent.”
Jean L, Cork

“The most professional, friendly and helpful service I have ever received from an estate agent – Peninsula Properties leaves the competition in the dust”
Noreen A, Bristol, UK

“Elaine Spillane of Peninsula Properties is an outstanding person who performs her work seriously and with ease. She sold a property for us on the Sheep’s Head and efficiently either e-mailed or telephoned us to keep us continually updated on the progress of the sale. We would recommend her”.
Bill and Barbara O’S., Michigan, USA

“I have no hesitation in recommending Peninsula Properties and Elaine Spillane to anyone who owns, or wants to own, property on the Sheep’s Head Peninsula. Elaine, having lived there for many years, is very knowledgeable about the area and the local community. I am currently a U.S. resident who recently purchased my retirement home just outside Durrus. Elaine has rented the property for me and has gone above the call of duty in handling some unforeseen problems with the rental. It is always a pleasure dealing with her”.
Mary M., Florida, USA

“Elaine Spillane has to be the very best estate agent in West cork for foreigners buying a house in Ireland. She found us the perfect Irish farmhouse, helped us at all stages of the negotiations with the vendors and steered us through the unfamiliar vagaries of home-purchasing in Ireland. We couldn’t have done it without her. As a long-time resident and property holder in San Francisco, she brings sensitivity and experience to responding to the concerns of Americans entering the Irish real estate market and she knows the Sheep’s Head Peninsula like her own backyard”.
John and Betsey C., Mill Valley, California, USA
