Description

Nestled in the farmland beneath the Slieve Bloom Mountains and located 3 miles from the market town of Mountrath and 5 miles from the heritage town of Abbeyleix and within 1 hour of Dublin city, this traditional thatch cottage which has been estimated to date back to around 1600 makes the perfect cottage holiday location.This unique cottage has recently been lovingly restored but not at the expense of it's original features and character.It retains a traditional Irish fireplace with beams in the lounge, exposed hand cut bog oak beams to the ceiling in the living room and in the oldest bedroom. Light filters in through the little sash windows (which need to be propped open), and the low doors leading off the living room gives a hint to the cottages true age. There are wonderfully uneven walls with nooks and crannies, wall lanterns and traditional light fittings all blending in with modern conveniences which include free Wifi internet access.This cottage really has the WOW factor!

Location description from owner

The Province of Leinster region

Traditional Farming community. Close to the Slieve Bloom Mountains where there are marked trails to follow for all levels of walkers/ramblers.

Mountrath

Not a heavily frequented tourist area, but lots of things to so and see, so a great place to immerse yourself into the real Ireland.
