Large wood burning stove and a classic country fireplace, when both are lit it’s magical. Large sitting room overlooking rear garden and rockery. Large simply landscaped front garden.

Where is it?


Our beautiful home is nestled by the sea, on the west coast of Ireland along the southern direction of the Wild Atlantic Way. Small village atmosphere with access to Portnoo links golf course and club house. A blue flag beach with body boarding, surf the waves on more blustery days or walk the beautiful 5km beach. At low tide access the wonderfully spiritual uninhabited island of Inishkeel, the home of two church ruins and a very old burial ground overlooking the sea.
