If you’ve always loved the idea of living in a cottage, here are three that might pique your interest. 


Even if you’re a dedicated city dweller, there’s something about a cottage that makes even the most urban among us long a little for the countryside. Perhaps it’s their picturesque appearances, or the idyllic settings they’re often found in, surrounded by natural beauty.

If you’re taking your cottagecore obsession to the next level, there are some gorgeous properties around the country that would make excellent homes. Here are three in Wexford that have us daydreaming of country walks and cosy evenings in.

Tara Ballaisc, Ballask, Kilmore, €210,000

cottages for sale

There’s something so appealing about a traditional thatched cottage, and this one is no exception. It’s located close to the south coast, just a 15 minute drive to some beautiful sandy beaches, including Ballyteige Burrow, and 20 minutes from Wexford town.

Inside, there are three bedrooms, and the interiors have been nicely finished, and feel modern. There is also a gravelled area to the rear that would be perfect for outdoor dining in the summer months.

 

The Hill, Kilmore, €199,000

cottages for sale

Not far away is this property, situated just outside Kilmore village. It has three bedrooms, and inside feels clean and bright, as well as spacious, making it ideal for a young family.

Set on half an acre of land, this home also has the potential to extend if required (subject to planning permission), and would also give children plenty of place to play outdoors.

 

Ballinlug, Killann, Enniscorthy, €150,000

cottages for sale

Set within a well-cared for garden that only adds to its charm, this three-bed cottage has elevated views over the surrounding landscape. Inside, it is in need of some modernisation, but is in good condition, ready for a new owner to add their own stamp.

A shed, garage, and coal store attached to the house provide plenty of storage, and also offer the opportunity for expanding the accommodation. Located just 15 minutes from Enniscorthy and 35 minutes from Wexford town, local amenities are easily accessed.
