Traditional Irish cottages have so charm to them. low-slung ceilings, exposed beams, huge fireplaces and deep-set sash windows, there is much to love.

However, if you love the aesthetic but couldn’t face the idea of tackling your own cottage ruin, then we have good news. There’s a plethora of gorgeous cottages on the market that have already been lovingly restored, we’ve selected three stunning homes on the market for under €200,000

Mountdruid Cottage, Castlerea, Co Roscommon
€120,000

This quaint two-bedroom bungalow thatched cottage sits on half an acre just 30 minutes outside of Roscommon town.

SImply restored, the living room boasts oak flooring and a timber fireplace with electric hearth, while the bright kitchen rises right up the ceiling with windows on three walls.

Outside, there are two thatched canopies and a large shed for storage.

 

Cloonkeely, Headford, Co Galway
€195,000

A more traditional thatched cottage than the first, this three-bed cottage sits on three-quarters of an acre in Headford, Co Galway. Within walking distance of Lough Corrib, it’s got plenty of character with a wood-burning stove, as well as modern benefits like radiators and under-floor heating.

The bathrooms and kitchen have been very recently renovated and there’s fresh flooring through the house. The kitchen/diner is fully equipped and includes traditional dresser and Belfast sink.

Outside, there are a total of three gardens surrounding the cottage, as well as a field, a ruin and outbuildings, part of which has been converted into a utility room and sheds.

 

Knockmore, Kilmihil, Co Clare
€145,000

The smallest of our three picks is this little 77-square-metre cottage in Co Clare. The interiors are dreamy, both period and yet very homely and snug. The stone cottage has two bedrooms and one bathroom and was fully renovated in 2003, retaining much of its original features.

The open-plan kitchen/living space reaches to the roof and with a wide stone fireplace dividing it from the main bedroom with a solid-fuel stove in the hearth. The bedrooms and large and bright and the bathroom has a bathtub and it is modern and neat.

The property also includes a detached studio with its own living quarters, including a kitchen and bathrooms, located in one of the outbuildings. The rest of the exteriors includes a lawned garden with a view over a small lake, more outhouses, a wooded area and ample parking.
