The property

Set on a working organic and livestock farm next to the owner’s home, this cosy cottage is just a few miles from Kingscourt in Count Cavan. This cottage is ideal for a peaceful retreat in a rural location and acts as a fantastic base as you explore this part of Ireland. With a lovely open plan living space, the cottage is set all on the ground floor. The well-equipped kitchen has a dining area and is perfect for the whole group to gather together and have a home-cooked meal in the evenings while making plans for the following days. The sitting area has a solid fuel stove, providing a homely and comfortable spot to relax with a good movie after a hard day’s walking. With two comfortable bedrooms, you will be well-rested to make the most of your holiday. There is furniture outside in the yard where you can take your morning coffee while reading the paper, before heading out and enjoying the good weather. On a clear day, head up to the top of Lough an Leagh Mountain where you are able to see up to fourteen counties. With the town of Kingscourt nearby, everything you may need is within easy reach, and there are plenty of things to see and do with Cabra Castle, which has a 9 hole golf course and tennis court, and Dún na Rí Forest Park, with plenty of colourful plants and array of wildlife. Why not travel a little further and take a day trip to Dublin where you can enjoy the Irish culture, walk the range of shops, and have a good meal in one of the pubs or restaurants? This is a beautiful cottage in a fantastic location to explore everything Ireland has to offer.
