Beautiful Irish thatched cottage could just be your dream home

Take a look inside this beautiful thatched roof cottage in Co Waterford. It’s the kind of fairytale home you dream about, yet ‘The Old Farmhouse’ of Sheskin was put the market for an affordable €219,000.

That makes it an absolute snip in our opinion. The two-bedroom detached cottage has undergone an extensive renovation over the past three years, with the owners paying special care to preserve many of the historic features whilst adding modern comforts.

The roof was professionally rethatched in 2014, using hardwearing Turkish Reed.

Throughout the home there is a strong feeling of tradition, with the original design of solid timber staircase, sash windows and solid fuel stove.

The cottage is situated in a beautiful area of the countryside, hidden away on a tranquil and peaceful cul de sac.
