The property

This delightful, semi-detached cottage is wonderfully situated at the water's edge, on the harbour, in the fishing village of Slade, 5.5 miles from Fethard-on-Sea in County Wexford. Lovingly refurbished by the owners, this listed building is nearly 200 years old, and makes a comfortable, welcoming Fethard-on-Sea cottage for friends or families. Boasting spacious accommodation, this lovely cottage has two sitting rooms, a lovely kitchen with dining area as well as three comfortable bedrooms. The main sitting room at this Fethard-on-Sea cottage has a quaint nautical theme, and even incorporates wood from ships that once sailed the high seas, while the smaller second sitting room enjoys harbour views and makes the perfect place to sit and relax after a long day exploring, as you watch the waves crash against the harbour wall, and see the boats land their catch after a long day at sea. Perhaps buy some freshly caught fish and cook up a storm in the well-equipped kitchen, or on the BBQ outside on a sunny afternoon. Take a stroll down the coastal road to Hook Lighthouse and marvel atits splendour, and on dark nights, perhaps see it working. This Fethard-on-Sea cottage is adjacent to the 15th century Slade Castle, so you can enjoy a slice of Ireland's history, literally on your doorstep. This delightful Fethard-on-Sea cottage is a great place to explore this part of Ireland, at any time of year.
