The property

Just five miles from the popular seaside resort of Courtown, this lovely annexe cottage, attached to the owner's home, is situated in the hamlet of Donaghmore, County Wexford. Set entirely over the ground floor, this Donaghmore cottage makes a perfect holiday base for a couple looking for a romantic break by the beautiful Wexford coast. This delightful Donaghmore cottage offers bright and airy accommodation with an open plan living area, where you can sit in comfort and open the patio doors to let in the bright morning air. Delight in the rural surroundings while the birds sing their call, and as you relax on the sunny patio and dine on a hearty Irish breakfast, see if you can spot the visiting hares and pheasants which often drop by to say hello. Enjoy the peaceful tranquillity offered by this cottage, where the sound of traffic becomes a distant memory, and is replaced by the soft rustling of long meadow grass. With a spectacular, private beach just five minutes' walk from your Donaghmore cottage, you can enjoy a peaceful evening walk along the shore as the sun's evening rays dance in the sea's foam. At the end of the beach at Rooney Point you can visit a colony of basking seals, watch as the sheen of their luminous bodies glistens in the sunlight, a delightful sight to lift the heart of anyone. Courtown is the perfect destination for an evening's entertainment and provides a selection of restaurants and lively bars for you to visit; during the day you can also enjoy the horse riding, fishing and golfing opportunities in the area. The Wicklow Mountains National Park is within driving distance of your Donaghmore cottage and will provide magical walking scenery for the outdoor enthusiast, and in the winter, this cottage is a cosy retreat; with underfloor heating throughout, you can kick off your walking boots and snuggle up on the couch after a long day's exploration. This Donaghmore cottage makes for a perfect romantic seaside retreat for writers, poets and anyone looking to spoil themselves with the beauty of County Wexford's coast.
