Who hasn’t thought about chucking in city living and moving to the countryside? Especially over these last few months. Maybe you’d get some chickens, start a vegetable patch, maybe even an easel and some watercolours.

If you’re seriously considering taking flight for more rural surrounds or still simply dreaming of it, these cottages in Kerry, Cork and Leitrim have oodles of charm to offer, and at a reasonable price point too.

 

Coornameana, Beaufort, Co Kerry
€150,000

Overlooking Lough Acoose on Kerry’s Iveragh Peninsula, this little stone cottage is about a half hour’s drive from Killarney. The cottage itself is thought to be at least 150 years old and has been slowly renovated by its current owners.

The cottage has two bedrooms, a bathroom and an open-plan area typical of cottages of this era. It retains all of its original charm, with a solid-fuel stove in the fireplace also containing a backburner, which heats the water. The roof has been recently re-corrugated and there’s a small storage area for timber outside. But really, you’re here for the view and peace and quiet that this one-acre property offers.

 

Deffier, Drumshanbo, Co Leitrim
€85,000

This house is going for online auction on September 30 so you’ll need to think fast! Set in the scenic countryside between Boyle, Co Roscommon and Drumshambo, Co Leitrim, this adorable cottage is a perfect escape from the world.

Set on almost 1.5 acres, this two-bed cottage has plenty of charm and has clearly been much loved by its current owners. A large open-plan space near the front hosts the living and dining rooms alongside a solid fuel stove and backboiler, while a music room and kitchen sit to the side and rear. There’s a bathroom with shower also located on the ground floor.  Upstairs are two double bedrooms that both have picture windows overlooking the calm countryside. 

Coolmountain, Dunmanway, West Cork
€145,000

Perched on a levelled-off piece of ground surrounded by trees, this gorgeous south-facing house is a remote haven. Currently used as a yoga studio and retreat, the house has three bedrooms plus an open-plan space upstairs.

As well as a comfy kitchen and snug living area, the house also includes a small office, bathroom, and utility. The property also boasts a cabin that has been connected to electricity and numerous other outbuildings, all on two acres of land.
