The property

This 300 year-old, stone-built detached cottage is situated in a rural location, 11 miles from the old harbour town of Dungarvan, in County Waterford. This Dungarvan cottage has a wonderfully unique semi-thatched roof, giving it an interesting twist on other traditional Dungarvan cottages. This delightful cottage retains many original features and character charm, including the thatched roof, solid fuel stove and large fireplace, and makes a real country retreat for anyone seeking an Irish hideaway. Inside, this Dungarvan cottage rental is cosy and comfortable, benefiting from the peace and tranquillity of the surrounding countryside. The pool table and table football is great for keeping children, and big kids, entertained, while adults can sit out in the lawned garden sipping a glass of wine on a warm summer evening. There is fantastic golf in the area, scenic drives, and stunning mountain views to behold, and if you can bring yourself to leave the peace and sanctuary of your Dungarvan cottage, there is so much to see and do.
