From Meath and Mayo to Carrigtwohill in Cork, these three properties exude a cosy countryside charm that you just can’t beat. If you want to embrace a slower pace of life, or are on the hunt for a family home with oodles of character and even more potential, you might just find what you’re looking for within the houses listed below.

Here are three beautiful Irish cottages currently on the market for under €325,000…

Killawalla, Westport, Co Mayo, €215,000

Irish cottages

Currently on the market for €215,000 through Sherry Fitzgerald Crowley, this traditional thatched cottage has been lovingly restored while retaining its original character. Having been modernised and extended without losing any of its original charm, this countryside cottage features vaulted painted timber ceilings, exposed stone to the side of the windows, a traditional half door and a Caillaich alcove bed space to the side of the fire.

Having been refurbished a year ago, there is also the added appeal of a number of furnishings, which have been sourced to enhance the property’s original character, are included in the sale. The site itself measures approximately 2.05 acres, most of which has been left in a natural state to encourage biodiversity. The surrounding gardens feature a stone paved terrace, a raised terrace overlooking Lake Nageltia and planting of native flowers. The property is accessed via a tree lined driveway giving privacy. A small stream runs along one of the boundaries.

The Stone Cottage, Dublin Road, Dunshaughlin, Co. Meath, €325,000

Irish cottages

Located on the Dublin Road, Dunshaughlin in county Meath, The Stone Cottage is the perfect family home just waiting for someone to make it their own. On the market for €325,000 with Coonan Property (Maynooth), this property is set on a large site with plenty of room for potential for further development, subject to the necessary planning permission. Whether that be an extension to the rear to make room for more bedrooms, or the addition of a dedicated work studio, the opportunities are endless.

The neatly packaged, recently refurbished property opens onto an entrance hall with tiled flooring and ample lighting, which then leads on to the generously proportioned living and kitchen area. In the living room, there is laminate flooring, recessed lighting, television points and a beautiful fireplace with a granite hearth. Located on Dunshaughlin main street, just a short walk from all local amenities including schools, shops and public transport, this beautiful Meath Cottage would make for a fabulous family home.

The Cottage Brambleton, Terrysland, Carrigtwohill, Co Cork

Irish cottages

Wander down the garden path at Terrysland, Carrigtwohill, county Cork and you’ll find The Cottage Brambleton, a gorgeous stone property currently on the market through Hegarty Properties for €235,000. A period-style build, this detached stone cottage was built circa 1909, and is filled with plenty of character and infinite possibilities. Comprising a beautiful bright sitting room, a well-lit kitchen, two bedrooms and a bathroom, the entire property covers about 450 square foot.

Irish cottages

Located on a lovely tree-lined road in Carrigtwohill, The Cottage Brambleton requires some modernisation and refurbishment, and is, therefore, best suited to a purchaser who wishes to put their own personal stamp on something a little different. To the front of the property, there is off-street parking and wiring in place for an electric vehicle charging point. To the rear, there is a lawned garden with apple trees, a plum tree and a fig tree, along with blueberry, raspberry, loganberry and red currant bushes. There is also a wonderfully secluded patio area, garden shed and raised beds ready for vegetables.
