Try to find the spot where the photographer was standing.
That is an unusually low catalogue number "L_ROY_00036".
Nearby in the catalogue are several from Renny, Co. Cork, including https://www.flickr.com/photos/nlireland/35091949556
Or possibly Ballyhooly, Co. Cork ? https://www.flickr.com/photos/nlireland/7406536002/
[https://www.flickr.com/photos/beachcomberaustralia] Ballyhooly, you say?
Cork Constitution - Tuesday 15 January 1895
I had a streetview amble round the outskirts of Ballyhooly and found a candidate, (same number of downstairs windows, same shape porch, low eaves) but wasn't sure, even allowing for alterations in the last 125 years (rebuilding the porch in stone, dormer windows, removal of chimneys, new downstairs windows) and the roof apex looks higher.
And now I can't find it.
Edit: but it certainly wasn't this wood cottage: ie.geoview.info/wood_cottage,3300409 (which if you look on satellite view doesn't exist)
https://www.flickr.com/photos/johnspooner Keep at it!
Found it. And the roof's a different shape, but ... alterations over 125 years
https://www.flickr.com/photos/johnspooner Good work there, but sorry, I am not convinced with your streetview. Chimneys tend to stay put, like the building's skeleton. And the chimneys' shadows seem to show the old building is facing north or east -ish; the streetview one is facing south.
https://www.flickr.com/photos/beachcomberaustralia I'm certainly not convinced. Good point on the shadows.
from irishgeneology dot ie: the death of Richard Wake, Medical Doctor, not practicing? aged 71, bachelor.
The copy is not very clear, but address looks like Wood Cottage Ballytague?
Here is the house in the mid distance (use megazoom) at Renny -

Wood Cottage is on the now unlinkable 25". Yes, the Google maps aerial view (which the beachcomber found first!) is a match.
https://www.flickr.com/photos/beachcomberaustralia Well spotted!
The good doctor's middle name appears to be Heathcote
aka Kylenahoura House according to this 2010 for sale blurb -
"... Formerly known as Wood Cottage and built as a hunting lodge for Lord Listowel, Kylenahoura House has been superbly restored, with five bedrooms in the expanded main house, three bedrooms in the gate lodge, and future potential in its range of stone-built, courtyard buildings ..."
See - www.irishexaminer.com/property/arid-20118583.html
Wake is listed as owning 14 acres at Kylenahoory, Ballyhooly in 1876 on this Mallow history page. Kylenahoory is the townland with Wood Cottage on the OSI maps.
A Dr Wake gets mentions in the press for his angling prowess e.g. Cork Constitution - Friday 14 February 1868 on catches with the fly on the Blackwater: "... and Doctor Wake, an excellent angler, landed several, and amongst them a very new weighty one."
I noticed that fishing rods were included in the auction of his goods.
I would imagine that the photo would not be labelled Dr. Wake's Lodge if Dr. Wake was dead? So dated before 1894.
Paging back through the catalogue, the first concrete date I see is a headstone at Cashel dated at 1902 in L_ROY_00027
I propose this location for Wood Cottage
Not named on 25", but a search on both the 25" and Google maps points here
Its plan matches the photo as does it's location beside river.
It also has a handy pier for the good doctors boat fishing.
http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/ check the beachcomber upthread, he found the house in another shot at Renny
https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/ Yes, I see it now, good catch. as the doctor would have said.
The Property Price Register records it’s sale in 2010 for 450k, a lot less than in the earlier Examiner article, perhaps it had lost some of its acres
