The property

This fresh, modern-style detached cottage is nestled within a patchwork of dramatic countryside providing wonderful views out towards the sea and Scattery Island. Interestingly, the house used to be part of an old railway from which the occupier would open the big gates to let the trains pass through. Set back in this quiet, secluded location near the coastal town of Kilrush is a comfortable, spacious interior boasting contemporary fixtures and cool colour schemes. Walk in from the rear of the property and step straight into the large, opulent kitchen providing lots of space to prepare and cook deliciously homemade meals. The dining room is very light and airy whilst the sitting room features a TV to entertain you through a winter's evening. Conveniently, one of the double rooms rests on the ground floor highlighting the original beams of the cottage in the arched ceiling, along with the wonderfully presented family bathroom next door. Down the sizeable hallway and up to the first floor you will find the second double room boasting majestic vistas of sweeping fields and the waters out to Scattery Island. From here, you can take a ferry and tour the wonderful island steeped in history, dating back to the 6th century. Kilrush offers much to do in the town with restaurants, pubs and an 18-hole golf course. Visit the horse-shoe bay at nearby Kilkee and travel the rugged Atlantic coastline from Loop Head Drive. There are numerous exciting attractions to be explored of County Clare from this delightful three-bed property.
