From a three-bed in Wexford to a home by the coast in Galway.

IF YOU’RE LOOKING for a unique property with plenty of charm in a peaceful location, a thatched cottage could be your answer.

This week we’re looking at four thatched cottages around the country – from a three-bed in Wexford to a home by the coast in Galway.

Ballyedmond, Co Wexford – €225,000

Situated on a site of 0.45 acres, this three-bed cottage has plenty of appeal. It retains much of its original features and the traditional hand-crafted thatched roof, as well as benefitting from a modern extension. Features include wooden floors, a solid fuel stove and panelled ceilings. Gorey town is a 20-minute drive away.
