The property

Blackwater 1 mile.

Dawnies Seahouse is a lovely, thatched cottage surrounded by rich, rural farmlands, just a stone's throw away from the beach, close to the village of Blackwater, County Wexford.

A traditional cottage with a thatched roof and stone walls, the cottage is adjacent to a farm, whilst the interior has been lovingly renovated with contemporary home comforts.

You'll find plenty of off-road parking on arrival, as well as a front courtyard with furniture to sit back with a cold beverage and enjoy your surroundings.

Inside, the well-equipped kitchen and utility have everything you need for a self-catering stay, whether that's whipping up delicious meals or cleaning sandy towels in the washing machine.

Relax with your loved ones in the living/dining room with a dining table, two sofas, and plenty of entertainment including a TV with FreeSat and DVD player; settle down for a film night or choose a book from the generous selection!

Alternatively, step out into your private, lawned garden to host dinner on the barbecue on summer evenings.

As night falls, freshen up in the shower room before choosing between three welcoming bedrooms; one double rests on the ground floor, whilst upstairs you'll find a twin room which leads to a family room with a king-size and single.

Start your holiday with a stroll to the nearby beach, whilst larger, sandy bays await at Ballynaclash, Ballinesker and Curracloe.

The village of Blackwater is close by with two pubs, a supermarket, and the popular Blackwater Coffee Company, alongside a children's playground, Blackwater Golf Course, and the family-friendly Blackwater open farm.

Spend the day in Enniscorthy (Inis Córthaidh) where you'll find the 16th-century Enniscorthy Castle, mutli-media exhibits at the National 1798 Rebellion Centre, and panoramic views from the top of Vinegar Hill; be sure to stop off at a traditional, riverside bar for live music and classic Irish comfort food!

The medieval town of Wexford (Loch Garman) is also nearby for The Blue Egg Gallery, a range of performances at the National Opera House, or step back in time at the Irish National Heritage Park to discover life in ancient Ireland.

From your cottage, you'll have easy access to wonderful attractions throughout County Wexford such as the ruins of Tintern Abbey, Colclough Walled Garden, and Our lady's Island Lake.

A delightful touring base to explore the sunny South East of Ireland, choose Dawnies Seahouse for your next family-friendly adventure.

About the location

BLACKWATER, COUNTY WEXFORD

The village of Blackwater is just 20 miles north of the ferry port at Rosslare. There is a busy village atmosphere with two shops and a selection of pubs. Less than 2 miles away is the stunning coastline of Wexford Bay, which boasts 20 miles of sandy Blue Flag beaches backed by dunes and nature trails. The southernmost stretch of beach at Curracloe has been voted “The best beach in Ireland” and was the location for the opening shots of the movie blockbuster Saving Private Ryan. The quaint heritage town of Wexford has narrow winding streets, a colourful quayside lined with historical buildings and a vibrant traditional Irish nightlife.
