It sits on the Kerry coast and could be made into a wonderful hotel or guest house for visitors to Ireland.

The property once slept more than 60 nuns at its busiest.

The dormitories were converted into single bedrooms as part of a 1980s refurbishment project and the 7,000 square feet home could now be the perfect resting spot for travellers and tourists.

The property is surrounded by various attractions including the St Michael’s Holy Well, McCarthy’s Castle and Skelligs Chocolate Factory.

Skellig Michael, where several scenes from the Star Wars films are recorded, is just a short boat ride from the coast.

There are also several outdoor activities such as golf, walking and boating readily available nearby.

St Michael’s is available for €649,000 via Jim Burns Auctioneers.
