While being a quarter of a millennia old, the home is a wonderful insight into earlier times, it also has modern comforts of electricity and running water (via private well and septic tank located on site).

Given the time it was built, plenty of natural light is also able to shine through.

The property is being sold through myhome.ie and is priced at €385,000.

The listing says: “The cottage which is approx. 250 years old has been restored and is lovingly maintained by its current architect owner and his wife keeping all the traditional features.

“Each room is the width of the house and therefore benefits from having windows to front and the rear. The main living room has stone flooring which was sourced in the nearby beach and a large stone fireplace with gas fire.

“This room leads into the dining area which has another stone fireplace which was restored by local blacksmith and has a stove.

“The Kitchen is fully equipped and has an Aga range. Each room has traditional sash type windows and benefits from the amazing views across the bay.”

The property is within a site of around one acre of land. The site also includes a stone out building to and an old traditional ruin.

The cottage is situated along the Ring of Kerry, which is one of the most popular beauty spots in Ireland.
