The property

Carrigaholt 3 miles. This charming cottage is a breath of fresh air, located within the picturesque location of Carrigaholt and wrapped in sea views. Hosting three bedrooms, this retreat is ideal for a set of couples or a group of friends to visit at any time of the year. Enter into the porch and through to the sitting room where you can rest throughout the day and enjoy some peace and quiet. The characterful fireplace and wood burner bring warmth to the room, so you can feel right at home from the off-set. Two double bedrooms are knitted together with patterned bedding, and the freestanding wardrobe and bedside tables compliment the layout well. The second room comes complete with an en-suite for your convenience. If you are looking to house an extra guest or simply somewhere for the children to stay, the single bedroom is equally as pleasant. Further round a utility room holds those essentials you may need and a family bathroom hosts both a bath and a shower, elevated by all white fittings that go hand in hand with the black tiles. Lastly, a well equipped kitchen is a homely place to prepare breakfast through to dinner with enough space to socialise. French doors open to a courtyard so you can wander outside and take in this magnificent location. The village of Carrigaholt features a ruined castle and offers a shop and a handful of pubs, and a restaurant. There is also a beach, which is ideal for swimming, along with sea fishing opportunities and boat trips for dolphin watching. The town is also the starting point for the Loop Head Drive along the rugged Atlantic coastline, which offers breathtaking coastal views. Everything you need for a heart warming stay.
