4 quaint thatched cottages for sale in Mayo, Clare and Wexford for less than €180,000

Embrace the rough-hewn walls, cosy fireside seats and old-world charm of these thatched cottages for sale in Ireland.


There is something so endearing about a thatched cottage. A rambling rose usually climbing up it, a meandering path leading to a primary-painted stable door.

Located in Mayo, Clare and Wexford, these cottages have all the charms you would expect, from stone fireplaces and timber beams to rough white-washed walls and deep-set windows.

So while yes, insuring a thatched cottage can come at a higher price, that doesn’t mean you can’t get one for a reasonable sum to make it worthwhile.

 

Shanvally, Kiltimagh, Co Mayo
€159,500

This thatched cottage in North Mayo comes with 9 acres of surrounding land.

Despite its historical appearance, the cottage has plenty of modern amenities including new windows, a modern kitchen and oil fire central heating.

 

Barleycove, Scarriff, Co Clare
€179,000

This three-bedroom, two-bathroom home is a 19th century stone cottage that was completely renovated in 2009.

With a large stove with stone surround, slate floors and timber beams, this cottage has lots of character, while the large windows and skylights give it plenty of light, unusual for a cottage of this era.

It has its own well from which it draws water and the current owners are flexible about including some furniture and equipment in the sale, if you were interested.

 

Larkfield, Camolin, Co Wexford
€169,000

This 200-year-old thatched cottage has got tonnes of old-world charm. With three bedrooms, one of the ground floor and two upstairs, it boasts a surprising amount of space for a traditional cottage.

Outside it is surrounded by mature trees and shrubs encircling a large garden, as well as some outhouses and sheds included in the property.

 

2 Thatched Cottages, Feakle, Co Clare
€125,000

This three-bed cottage is just under 70 square metres and comes on 0.2 acres. It’s part of a collection of cottages, and this one has just been rethatched.

With all the traditional trimmings of a cottage, it’s a snug little space and is within walking distance of Feakle village, known for its traditional music.

Are you tempted any of these thatched cottages for sale in Ireland?
