The property

This three-bedroom detached cottage lies on a beautiful complex in the village of Fethard-on-Sea, a peaceful yet varied location with assorted attractions and notable places of interest. The open-plan set-up oozes nothing less than character, with its cream coloured sofas and open fire sitting amongst quirky accessories. The lounge is backed by a modern kitchen area, whilst a charming dining table is situated in the corner of the room, perfect for an evening meal. The vibrant features are perfect to uplift your mornings, and after a long day, this is a lovely base to calm your thoughts. The first floor is home to two bedrooms; the twin is charmingly styled, dressed in pinstripe bedding with lovely finishing touches. Close by, the double bedroom boasts an almost seaside theme with blues and whites to promote a peaceful night's sleep, while bringing a sense of the outside in. The ground floor double is also softly furnished and features an en-suite shower room. A traditional bathroom completes the interior. Outside, you can relax on the decked platforms, situated to the front and rear of the cottage, a perfect spot to enjoy the location at its finest. You can even access the beach from the estate and make the most of the sunshine, or keep the children entertained, by joining them on the tennis court, soccer pitch, or playground. 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. Travel over to Waterford in the west or Wexford in the east to take in all they have to offer. A getaway not to be missed.

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.
