Picture it. Curled up by the fire, a whisky in one hand, a bag of Taytos in the other. Sheep baaa-ing softly in the distance. What could be more Irish? A shillelagh rack perhaps?
This gorgeous little thatched cottage is on the market for €49,950, and is honestly one helluva good-looking bargain for anyone after a hustle-and-bustle escape-pod and with a love of the Irish countryside. It's a (very reasonably priced) dream-come-true.
Though it must be said, the place needs a little lovin', so be sure to bring plenty of elbow grease with you, but anyone looking to hark back to their traditional Irish roots, this place is sure to allow you to do that.
Located in Castletown, Neale, Co. Mayo, this cottage sits beside two stunning lakes and still has its original fireplace.
"You might need to be a little more than a DIY enthusiast to tackle this one!" The listing reads.
"We are delighted to bring the market this quaint thatched stone cottage within striking distance of Loughs Mask and Corrib. The cottage sits on circa 0.75 acres and includes stone outhouses.
"Although occupied until relatively recently, the cottage is very much in its original state and is in need of extensive renovation and modernisation. It does, however, come complete with its original inglenook fireplace."
