3 bed Farmhouse in Ireland
This beautifully restored, vernacular cottage is a real gem. Situated amid lush green pastures it boasts rural solitude while at the same time being close to a town. This charming 19th century cottage retains all its character with its living-room/kitchen, three bedrooms, large bathroom, utility and lots of easily accessed attic space. Traditionally restored to the highest standard and with all mod cons. Outside there is a large, airy, high roofed shed which, keeping in character with the main building, is also fronted with traditional slate. Surrounded by lush green fields, the property includes an acre of grassland to the front which slopes down to a rippling river and bridge.
River Cottage is three miles from the historic town of Kilrush- the gateway to the west Clare peninsula. Amid many festivals and family activities held throughout the year the town boasts a beautiful marina, dolphin watching trips on the Shannon Estuary, visits to the monastic settlement on Scattery Island, nightly traditional music sessions in its pubs, restaurants offering the best of local sea-food, many boutiques for the discerning shopper and the exquisite Vandeleur Gardens. Sailing, horse-riding and golf are among the many sporting pursuits the town has to offer.
The cottage is within an hour's drive of the Victorian sea-side resort of Kilkee, the botanically diverse Burren, the world renowned Aillwee Caves, the Lodge at Doonbeg golf course, the fishing village of Doolin and Aran Islands, the surfers paradise of Lahinch, the majestic Cliffs of Moher and all that North Kerry has to offer via the Kilimer/Tarbert car ferry.
This property is a true gem offering a quiet rural retreat and yet a few minutes drive from a bustling, market town. It is within easy reach of all attractions being two miles off the main Kilrush/Ennis road. Truly a gem, offering splendid value for money and well worth enquiring about.
