From a detached five-bed in Tipperary to a three-bed in Kildare.

WITH RESTRICTIONS LIFTED and better weather on the way, no doubt many of us will be entertaining at home this summer. Even if we live in a country that gets, on average, 225 days of rain a year, we certainly know how to barbecue.

For those of us who get a hankering for grilled food as soon as summer hits, here are four large homes that have incorporated handy outdoor cooking areas for al fresco entertaining that’s sure to impress. 

Thurles, Co Tipperary – €475,000

Ashfield is a five-bed detached home that’s 191 sq m in size and surrounded by lawns shrubs and flowerbeds, along with a cut-stone pergola to the back of the house. There’s also a detached 52 sq m garage, which would be perfect as a workshop or extra accommodation.

The main house includes an entrance porch, entrance hall, kitchen, dining room, sitting room and five bedrooms with one currently being used as an office. This property is ideal for a large or growing family that needs access to the M8 making journeys to Cork or Dublin easy.

Sallins, Co Kildare – €450,000

No 57 Willouise is a three-bed, semi-detached family home set over three floors thanks to the attic room, which is in great condition. Once a four-bedroom house, the owners converted it to a three-bed to extend the master bedroom that enjoys views of the Grand Canal. Downstairs, you’ll find the long entrance hall that leads to the downstairs toilet, the living room, and the large, open plan space for cooking, dining and relaxing in. A utility room also makes up the ground floor.

The three bedrooms, including the aforementioned master suite, reside on the first floor. There’s plenty of parking thanks to the corner site location, along with a spilt-level rear garden with outdoor lighting, sandstone patio area, pergola and decked area for hosting great barbecues.
