This cosy cottage along the Wild Atlantic Way is on the market for €165,000

If it’s peace and tranquillity you’re after, this beautiful little cottage in Ballina, Co Mayo will make your heart sing.

A lovingly restored 1700s era home nestled along the rugged Mayo coastline, The Cottage is privy to some of the most spectacular views around. Only a short walk from the ocean and the wild Atlantic coastline, the property stays true to its traditional roots while also incorporating more modern features.

Inside, the entrance opens right into the warm and spacious living room which has a vaulted ceiling and beautiful stone window seat from which you can admire the landscape. An ornate stone fireplace stands at the heart, making it the perfect place to enjoy a cosy night in front of the TV. 

Move further inside and you’ll find the kitchen extension which features fitted units, a Belfast sink and a gas stove. The wood floors continue into this room, leading out to the back hall where there is a shower room with double electric shower.

Both bedrooms are located off the living room. The master has a vaulted ceiling with painted ceiling boards, also boasting another stone window seat to the foot of the bed. Carpet has been fitted in this room for comfort. The other bedroom is bright and airy with wooden floors and one window to let the sunlight trickle in. 

Outside there is a large enclosed courtyard with patio area, ideal for entertaining friends and family during the warmer months as there is a picnic table and plenty of space for a barbeque. Step outside the walled garden, and you’re surrounded by nature on all sides with fields of lush green as far as the eye can see – a nature lover’s paradise! 

Situated right near Back Beach which overlooks Lacken Strand, Kilcummin village is also nearby as are The Kilcummin Heritage Loop Walks for when you fancy an adventure to blow the cobwebs off.
