There’s something so romantic about an Irish cottage, surrounded by acres of emerald green. Feast your eyes on these beauties — and feel free to daydream your heart away on this St. Patrick’s Day!
This grazing property, located on the Southwest coast of Ireland and only 70 minutes from Cork City (aka the “Irish Riviera”), is as far away from trouble as one can get. The land itself (.5 acres) would prove an ideal organic farm and comes with the remains of a stone cottage. You could rebuild the home, preserve it in glass or use it as the foundation of a garden.
Located close to the villages of Bodyke and O’Callaghan’s Mills in County Clare, this old stone cottage is nestled on a half acre. Mind you, the home needs a complete renovation, but with views like this and proximity to exquisite countryside, you may just be more than happy to take the leap.
Located in the town of Carrick-on-Shannon, the largest town in the county, this three-bedroom beauty boasts views and proximity to the town center and the River Shannon. Perfect for expansion, this home could serve as a holiday getaway or primary residence.
Perhaps the best of the bunch, this old stone farmhouse is surrounded by lush farmland and mature trees. The River Brandon runs right through the property, which features an outbuilding and paved yard. The entire home, complete with expansive open hearth, requires a complete renovation (and modernization). Thankfully, you’d be located just three miles north of Brandon, known as the gateway to West Cork, to gather much-needed home improvement supplies.
Nestled near the town of Tralee, the largest town in County Kerry, this thatched-roof stone cottage comes with … wait for it … 12 acres of land, six outbuildings and its own hay barn. Gentlemen farmers, you’ve met your match! Major improvements will be necessary, but you can always warm yourself by the humongous open hearth while a construction crew transforms this magical space for you.
Saving the best for last, this three-bedroom stone home (once a creamery) is located within walking distance of the coastal town and picturesque harbor of Dungarvan. The beautifully renovated home, complete with open hearth and solid timber floors, is being sold with all its contents and furniture. Seaside getaway, here we come!
