3 cute cottages around the country for €200,000

3 cute cottages around the country for €200,000

These three cottages each have something to offer, whether that’s a great location or aesthetic charm.

Whether it’s out in the countryside or surrounded by other homes, there’s no denying the appeal of a cottage. If your lifestyle suits their small proportions, they’re cosy and full of charm.

Here are three around the country currently on the market for €200,000

96 College Rd, Galway City

It’s rare to find a cottage so close to a city centre, but this home is located in the heart of Galway. With three bedrooms, it’s in need of full renovation, but it has the potential to be an incredible home with good looks and great location.

Part of the plot looks out to the waterfront of Lough Atalia, and there is potential to extend the existing building.

Bridia Valley, Killarney, Kerry

This beautiful stone cottage sits within the McGuillycuddy Reeks Mountain Range and along the Kerry Way. It has recently been refurbished, adding modern features like picture windows to frame the incredible views.

There are two bedrooms, and a feature stone hearth in the living space is a definite selling point. Its rural location means that you’re guaranteed peace and quiet, while the nearest town, Killorglin, is around 25 kilometres away.

‘Gardenia Cottage’, Ballinagranagh, Kilteely, Limerick

This cottage has been extended, and so is in fact much larger than it appears from the front. It has four bedrooms in total, as well as a living room, kitchen and two bathrooms. 

Just 20 minutes’ drive from Limerick city, it’s perfect for those who enjoy a rural location but want easy access to amenities.
