AS IF a gorgeous cottage in the idyllic countryside of West Cork wasn't tempting enough for anyone looking for a charming little getaway, this one has its very own waterfall.
That's right, a friggin' waterfall.
Unsurprisingly, the property is called 'Waterfall Lodge', and it's on the market for a very reasonable €325,000 ($360,000) through REA Celtic Properties.
It describes itself as an "ideal 'get away from it all' haven of relaxation," which sounds ... pretty lovely wouldn't you agree? And it's hard not to see why.
Situated on the Sheepshead Peninsula, this stunning one-bedroom cottage overlooks a sheltered pocket of Cork's Atlantic coast, with plenty of opportunities for walking, cycling and horse riding.
The interior is a blend of contemporary beauty and traditional, rural charm, with an open-plan kitchen/dining area and a stone fire-place. Outside, the garden has plenty of space for sitting, eating and relaxing.
Oh yes, and the waterfall in question runs down the side of the property, eventually reaching the Atlantic Ocean just a mile or so down the hill!
It's just a ten minute drive to Bantry (voted Ireland's best kept town in 2019), and an hour and a half from Cork City.
Altogether, this irresistible property boast a balance of rural beauty and modern practicality. Whether you're looking for a cosy getaway, tucked away in the hills, or a comfy base from which to explore the very best of Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way, this cottage could be the one you've been waiting for.
