The property

12 Sandeel Bay Cottage can be found resting on the outskirts of Fethard-On-Sea on the eastern side of the Hook Peninsula, a truly magical corner of Ireland that can be enjoyed all year around.

With three generous bedrooms, a spacious lawn area and its close position to the coastline, this detached holiday home is perfect for families and those alike to enjoy a relaxing holiday and to enjoy the abundance of things to do in this southeast corner of Ireland.

Take a moment to soak up the far-reaching sea views before entering into the holiday cottage, which has been furnished and decorated with a sense of home in mind, with a warming open fire setting the ambiance during the winter months.

Look forward to rustling up home-cooked meals within the kitchen, as you make the most of the electric oven, gas hob, fridge and dishwasher, with large windows flooding in natural light and offering pretty views as dinner simmers on the hob.

The dining table makes a great spot for gathering together to enjoy meals, a wine or two, a board game brought from home or for mapping out the next day’s adventures, before you sink into the sofa and flick on the TV.

Once the evening has drawn to a close, retire to one of the three bedrooms, comprising of a double bedroom with an en-suite, a family bedroom with a double bed and a single bed and a single bedroom, designed to ensure a flexible sleeping arrangement to suit the needs of any group type.

Summer afternoons can be spent enjoying lunch on the private decking, where glorious views can be admired, strolling through the well-kept manicured grounds or challenging a loved one to a game of tennis!

For local amenities, take a venture into the nearby village, where you will find a number of takeaways, a pub and a shop for picking up any essentials.

Notable places to visit whilst staying here include the nearby Loftus Hall, reputedly Ireland’s most haunted house, where you can enjoy guided walks or venture to Hook Lighthouse, the world’s oldest operational lighthouse for breath-taking scenery.

During the warmer months, spend some time at the nearby Grange Beach or brush up on the local history further by visiting the remains of the 13th century Tintern Abbey before admiring the Colclough Walled Garden.

Further afield, there is the Ballyteige Burrow, a 9km-long, narrow, coastal townland which makes a great spot for walking or you could spend the day in the bustling town of Wexford, which is known for its medieval lanes and the opera festival which is held in the National Opera House.

12 Sandeel Bay Cottage is a wonderful retreat for you and your family to enjoy this part of Ireland.

About the location


Duncannon 5.5 miles; New Ross 17 miles; Waterford 31.5 miles.

Fethard-on-Sea is a village nestling to the east of the Hook Peninsula, in the south-west of lovely County Wexford. Fethard-on-Sea has a colourful history, including the lifeboat tragedy of 1914, and the Fethard-on-Sea Boycott, which has been immortalised in print and on film. Now a quiet fishing and holiday village, Fethard makes a great base to enjoy sandy beaches, shops and pubs. The Hook Peninsula continues to attract visitors due to the ancient lighthouse and a multitude of beaches. There is a beach a day for a fortnight on the Peninsula, plus there are a variety of watersports, such as diving, snorkelling and shore angling, along with painting and birdwatching. There are many interesting historical sites to visit, such as Tintern Abbey with its walled garden, guided tour and forest walk and medieval abbeys in Dunbrody and Graiguenamanagh, plus the star shaped Elizabethan Fort at Duncannon houses a military and maritime museum, and The Cockleshell Art Gallery. Head up to New Ross and visit the JFK Arboretum or the Dunbrody Famine Ship, or travel over to Waterford in the west or Wexford in the east to take in all they have to offer, from the Wexford Opera House, Johnstown Castle and The Heritage Park to Waterford Castle and Waterford Crystal.
