We all have different definitions of “turnkey condition”. To some of us, it means functioning plumbing and running water that’ll allow you to live there as you gradually make it your own. For others, the thought of putting up a TV bracket is too much. 

Whether you’re looking forward to cracking open the paint pot or only want to unpack and relax in your new rural retreat, these homes in Leitrim, Mayo and Wexford have scenic views and charming interiors to add to their fresh rewiring and modern plumbing.

 

Clonmore Cottage, Enniscorthy, Co Wexford
€129,000

This little one-bed cottage is about as walk-in ready as you will ever see. Impeccably finished, the 49-square-metre house has everything you could need, from a tidy little kitchen to ample built-in wardrobe space in the bedroom. 

Located just 10 kilometres from Enniscorthy and coming with ¾ of an acre, it’s the perfect country escape, with all the amenities close by yet all the rural views available from its neatly decked patio overlooking its own orchard.

 

Mohercregg, Drumshanbo, Co Leitrim
€155,000

If quaint country living is what you have in mind for the whole family, then this adorably shuttered house outside of Drumshanbo, Co Leitrim could be the one. The three-bedroom house enjoys panoramic views of the mountains and nearby lake with all the comforts of home including a bespoke country kitchen, high-speed internet and a cosy living room stove.

The property also comes with an adjoining two-bed apartment, so if family decide to visit everyone can enjoy their own space. 

5 Ard Na Mara, Killadoon, Louisburgh, Co. Mayo
€160,000

For many, the only view worth paying for is a view of the sea, and this house has that in spades. Located in Mayo’s surf capital, Louisburgh, has the Atlantic Ocean at its doorsteps with Inisbofin, Inisturk and Clare Island visible on the horizon.

The four-bedroom house is tucked amongst just a handful of others and the open-plan, double-height living room and kitchen would make a great spot for summer gatherings, with double doors opening onto a scenic patio.
