The property

Perched on the Irish coast in Kilmore Quay is the inviting, semi-detached cottage of Gannet Cottage.

Showcasing sea and harbour views, along with being within easy reach of Ireland's seaside towns and villages, this is a fantastic dwelling for a family of four's beachfront break.

After parking in the in-demand space, head inside to be welcomed by this characterful abode with laminate, wood floors and exposed beams throughout.

The open-plan living space is home to a sitting room that has been designed for relaxation, with ample seating for you to unwind on in front of a toasty electric fire and TV with Freeview.

Close-by is the fabulous kitchen, a space that is home to all the essentials required to create fantastic meals for all the family; including a handy dishwasher!

After the designated chef has rustled up some culinary delights, enjoy them at the nearby dining table with your loved ones as you plan your holiday itinerary.

In the evening, head to bed in the ground-floor double room with its ample, wooden storage and a nearby, tiled bathroom with a fantastic bath with shower over; or continue upstairs to find a mezzanine twin room that is perfect for the kids or friends.

In the morning, relax in the pleasant sunroom with a cup of tea, before venturing out into the delightful courtyard to take in the sea breeze.

Wander down the flower-filled walkway from the property to access the stunning sandy cove and Kilmore Beach.

A short stroll away from the centre of the picture-postcard village of Kilmore Quay, where a selection of seafood restaurants featuring fresh produce and a vibrant marina with boat trips to the Saltee Islands and Ballyteigue Burrow Nature Reserve await.

Spend the day in Rosslare Harbour where you can walk through the pretty Kirwans Garden, view the panoramic vista from the Small Boat Harbour or enjoy a game of putty at the nearby village of St. Helens Bay's golf club; before ending the day with catching the sun's rays at Burrow Bay Beach.

Travel a little further for an outing in the county town of Wexford, a place steeped in history with brilliant landmarks, including Selskar Abbey, as well as a renowned Racecourse and National Opera House; a place home to the International Opera Festival.

For a memorable stay by the seaside, choose Gannet Cottage.

About the location


Rosslare 12 miles; Wexford 14 miles.

Kilmore Quay is a small fishing village situated in the south east corner of County Wexford, 14 miles from Wexford town and just 12 miles from the international ferry port of Rosslare. Famous for its numerous whitewashed thatched cottages and its state-of-the art marina, Kilmore Quay is also an established angling centre with many species of fish in abundance, and the seafood festival in July is the perfect example of it! The area is ideal for a spot of diving as the seas from Hook Head to Carnsore Point have been known as "the graveyard of a thousand ships". Beautiful unspoilt sandy beaches are within easy reach of the village, with nearby Ballyteigue offering beautiful walks along some of the finest sand dunes in the south-east of the country. A day trip to the Great Saltee Island and its famous bird sanctuary is an absolute must!
