An ideal romantic retreat with bags of character and a warm welcome guaranteed, this cosy cottage near Cahir is set next to the owners' home in the rural hamlet of Knockane, County Tipperary. The living accommodation in this Cahir cottage is airy and unusual, with a grand feature fireplace, high ceiling and steps up to the mezzanine bedroom area. Surrounded by imposing Irish mountains and countryside landscapes, this Cahir cottage makes a superb base for hikers, walkers or simply strollers looking to breathe in the fresh air and relish the peace and quiet of the Knockmealdown or Galty mountain ranges. Relax in the gravel garden with patio and BBQ at this Cahir cottage, with a good book or simply good conversation, or in cooler times, curl up in front of the crackling multi-fuel stove in the sitting area.

Whatever you wish from your holiday, this romantic Cahir cottage makes a wonderful Tipperary base.
