Green fields and open spaces are still very much calling to those of us who have been city bound during the pandemic. For many, the pull of the west of Ireland has never been stronger.

The cottages below will require some serious love, attention, and cash to bring them back to life. But if you have the time and are looking for a project, your hard work will reap rewards in the west.

Glengad, Pullathomas, Belmullet, Co. Mayo, €37,000

There are doer uppers, and then there are doer uppers. This will take a lot of work, make no qualms about it. But look.at.those.views. This one bedroom property is located in the village of Glengad, which is 20 kilometres from Belmullet. This is a truly remote area and the perfect place if you really want to get away from it all. The house is on 0.56 of an acre and Broadhaven Bay stretches out in front of you, ready to be framed through the perfect cottage window.

Cloonnahulty, Kiltimagh, Co. Mayo, €60,000

This three bed house will need some flair and imagination to bring it back to life, but the quiet rural setting provides the perfect backdrop for a unique family home, approximately 6km from Kiltimagh. It also has the benefit of a small extension that was added to the original cottage.

Garrymore, Claremorris, Co. Mayo, €50,000

This three bedroom cottage is found down a country lane on 0.75 of an acre. While the inside needs a complete overhaul, the estate agent reports that the structure is solid, and comes with a new roof. It is located right in the heart of the countryside on the border between Galway and Mayo, while still only a two and a half hour drive from Dublin.
