Inside Saoirse Ronan’s quaint and cosy two-bed stone cottage in West Cork

Inside Saoirse Ronan’s quaint and cosy two-bed stone cottage in West Cork

While we're still waiting to catch a glimpse of Paul Mescal and Phoebe Bridgers' new abode, we're taking a look back at Saoirse Ronan's quaint and cosy two-bed stone cottage on the waterfront in West Cork.

Having sold her Greystones home in 2019 for €1.6 million, Saoirse Ronan snapped up a highly sought after water front property in West Cork during lockdown in 2020. Located in Ballydehob, overlooking the scenic Roaring Water Bay, the property was on the market for a reported €795,000 from James Lyons O’Keefe, and was sold for €650,000 according to the property register.

The award-winning actress has been seen in the West Cork area quite a lot over the last few years. However, it now appears that the trips were more than just a holiday. 

The modest house is a quaint two-bedroom stone overlooking the water. The ground floor is mostly given over to a cosy kitchen/living diner, divided by a staircase that also acts as an area of built-in storage. 

The living area is centred around a traditional stove, framed on either side by alcove windows that show the garden tumbling into the sea. There’s also a small conservatory to capture the best of the West Cork sunshine.

On the other side of the kitchen is a large double bedroom with a dual aspect and a free-standing tub. The room also has access to the garden via a glass sliding door.

Upstairs is a second double bedroom, tucked into eaves with two dormer windows giving it plenty of light. There’s also a small study, bathroom and storage room on this floor. 

The house also comes with its own mooring in Roaring Water Bay, as well as access to a local pier. On the 1.25 acres shoreline plot, there’s also another stone building adjacent to the house that is waiting for a purpose. It’s smaller than the house, just 70 square metres, but could make for a sweet guesthouse, so long as the actress can get planning…

Take a look at the gallery below for a more in depth look at Saoirse Ronan’s West Cork home.
