Ever dream of owning a hideaway in the country? Well, look no further than this beauty.
A small pink cottage, overlooking a lake in County Clare, is trending on the property website myhome.ie, and could be yours for the low, low price of €65,000.
The house is built on 0.27 acres and sits in the heart of Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way, with a clear view of Ballyvelaghan Lough. This pretty pink cottage on Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way is a steal of a deal.
A country retreat
The cosy cottage would be perfect as a holiday home or a rural getaway. It has been painted a striking shade of pink to give it a unique charm, and comes with land around it for potential further development.
With nobody living in the house for approximately 50 years, it will need modernising, but at the cost of just €65,000, there should be plenty of change for refurbishments.
The property is located 1.5 km from New Quay village, making shops, restaurants, and bars accessible. And for those flying over for a weekend break, Shannon airport is only one hour’s drive away.
Breath-taking scenery, endless walking routes, and the coast just 10 km away, the cottage oozes appeal for potential buyers who enjoy the great outdoors. Clare is a super county to explore with lots of flat land for walking and plenty of water activities to try.
Or for those who crave a dose of city life, Galway is just one hour away and perfect for shopping, dining, and nightlife.
Location, location, location!
It is often difficult to find the best of everything in a property, but this cute cottage has it all. It offers a rural retreat for those who want to get away from it all, surrounded by abundant wildlife, historic villages, and Atlantic shores.
Not to mention, being just a stone’s throw from several beaches, the stunning Cliffs of Moher, and the unique Burren landscape.
New Quay was originally the village of Burrin before a quay was built in 1837. It is home to ‘The Flaggy Shore’, made famous by Irish writer, Seamus Heaney, and two late 18th-century Martello towers, one on nearby Finavarra Point, and the other on Aughinish island.
More recently, the village has become popular among tourists exploring the area and those with a keen interest in local produce. The Burren Food Trail reveals the field-to-fork journey of local dishes with Linnane’s Lobster Bar in the village particularly famous for its delectable seafood menu.
And if that wasn’t enough, The Russell Art Gallery has a gorgeous little café, and ice-cream at Linnalla’s is an excellent spot during the summer.
The coastal village of Kinvara is slightly further away in the southwest of County Galway, but definitely worth the trip. It has more shops, supermarkets, and a few lively spots perfect for mingling with the locals.
Continue to Galway city for a dose of the bright lights, shopping, and adventure, before heading home to your perfect pink cottage in the country.
