County Kerry

A thoroughly modern twist on the traditional Kerry cottage, comfortable with restrained styling.

Contemporary and commodious

One of five architect designed houses in a stunning new private gated development.
The south and western elevations offer a surprising contrast; contemporary, glazed walls, sharp angled exteriors that hint at the bright modernity of the interior.

Entry through a small glazed lobby reveals a shimmering open plan ground-floor, minimalist in style with elegant detailing.

You are immediately welcomed by a contemporary woodburning stove that faces into one of two seating areas at opposite ends of the home. Both have substantial full height corner windows that oversee a generous shared terrace.

In the centre of the house, the refectory-style dining area flows directly onto that sunny terrace through sweeping glass doors that slide.

The space is shared with a stylishly handle-free fitted kitchen in slate-grey, separated by a large preparation island.

Beyond the kitchen, and a step down, is an expansive and double sofa-ed TV room, with that second corner wall of glazing.

Throughout the home internal views provide clean, fine perspectives out to the garden and vistas beyond; eclectic paintings charm; and underfloor heating ensures a comfortable ambient temperature.

Bedrooms

The first of two large double bedrooms is located on the ground floor, with an ensuite bathroom equipped with monsoon power shower.



Stairs from the entrance hallway reach a landing accessing two kids bedrooms – each with a pair of bunk beds. Alternatively, one of these rooms can be set up with two single beds.

A shared family bathroom with bath and modern power shower, is also off the landing.

The master bedroom is south facing with fantastic views to the Kerry mountains, and its own ensuite shower room.

Out & About

 
Anywhere along the Ring of Kerry you will be spoiled for things to do, and nowhere more so than in Glenbeigh. Often referred to as “the Jewel in the ring of Kerry”, there are truly amazing blue flag beaches for surfing and kiting, fabulous golf courses, incredible lake and river fishing and brilliant restaurants.​

Here are some of our favourites…

 

The Locality

 

 

​Just over half an hour from Killarney on the Ring of Kerry, itself one of the highlights of Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way, Dooks is home of one of the country’s most charming golf links and one of three magnificent beaches that straddle Dingle Bay.

The house is adjacent to both.
Wild Atlantic Way
Click here to find out more…

With a charming clubhouse and bar, Dooks is one of Ireland’s oldest and more challenging links. It is also home to the protected Natterjack Toad, the only species native to Ireland which features on the club’s logo. They are active at night with a very loud and distinctive mating call.

Dooks beach is just a stone’s throw from the house and looks directly across to the seven glorious kilometres of sand-spit that is Rossbeigh Strand. Ideal for swimming, windsurfing, sailing, horse-trekking, and sea fishing. It also has an excellent children’s playground – Tir na Nog

Directly across Dingle Bay is the extremely popular narrow peninsula of Inch Strand – 45 minutes by car.

The local town of Glenbeigh, just 4km from the house, is a corruption of the Gaelic word meaning “valley of the Birch trees”. Here you will find a small supermarket plus a number of excellent pubs and restaurants.

Caragh Lake in the hills above, above is a beautiful expanse of water 4 miles long, set among broom and heather with majestic mountains for background, it is well known to anglers for excellent fishing.

Coomasaharn Lake, the largest of the lakes in Glenbeigh, is enclosed on three sides by high rocky mountains protecting it from modern polluters and is known for its trout fishing.

Strange things happened when the last Ice Age receded – some creatures became marooned- and this is one of the lakes in Ireland which has the Sliver Blue Char, a rare example of a remnant fish from that period.

Like the Connemara Pony of Galway, the Kerry Bog Pony originated in Ireland. The breed developed physical characteristics including an unusual footfall pattern, which helped it move on soft ground such as peat bogs. These ponies are known for hardiness and an ability to survive in harsh conditions.

Near the village is the ruin of “Wynne’s Folly”, a castle mansion built by Lord Headley Wynne in 1867. The barbarity and brutality of these land owners in pressing the locals for funds is notorious.In the late 1880’s there were numerous evictions, as tenants were just not able to afford an increased rent of a massive 50% in most cases, to pay for the construction of the Wynne castle.However, Wynn eventually drifted into insolvency, and he made his exit from the Glenbeigh. In 1921 Republican forces burned the castle to the ground and it was never rebuilt.

The Dingle Peninsula is littered with much, much older monuments, mostly cross-pillars and standing-stones, and it would take at least three days non-stop to visit everything worth seeing, but if you pass one – have a look, because these carvings put the a in ancient.

image Snalwibna

Tearaght Island, the most westerly of the Blasket Islands, at the mouth of Dingle Bay, is the most westerly point of the British Isles, and the closest point in Europe to America.

Nobody lives there, it is essentially a bird sanctuary, but the stories of a community living on the edge of the world have become classic writing throughout the world.

Killorglin 19km away is the first town on the Ring of Kerry. First, because coaches touring the route are obliged to travel around in one direction to avoid congesting the narrow roads.

The town is renowned for holding the three-day annual Puck Fair – the oldest traditional fair in Ireland, in which a live mountain goat is crowned King, and then put into a small cage on a high stand in the middle of the town square for the duration of the festivities. Starts 10th August.

This region has a rich and ancient heritage of Dukes and Earls, Bishops and brewing.
There’s so much to taste and see, we just can’t list them all.

The Locality

 

 

Thomastown at 5km upstream is the nearest town to the house. There are two large supermarkets, restaurants, coffee shops, pubs and a selection of craft shops to browse.

At one stage there were 12 water-powered mills, for grain and cloth, working locally. Several mills can still be seen upstream from the bridge in Thomastown.

Fourpenny Rock House gets its name from a toll that was levied on the flat-bottom boats known as Cots that transported goods along the River Nore to the ports of Ross and Waterford, and were obliged to pass a particular rock below the house.

Dysart Castle, on the opposite side of the river, was the birth place of George Berkeley.  George, the eponymous philosopher of Berkeley University California, was active in the first half of the 18th century.

The medieval city of Kilkenny – 25km distant – is often referred to as the Marble City due to its unique black marble mining. It is the smallest city in Ireland.

image Kilkenny-castle Sabrina O’Brien

Work on Kilkenny Castle was begun in 1204 and took 9 years to complete.  The Castle became the seat to the Butler family, a very powerful dynasty who lived there until 1935.
Lady Margaret Butler who was born there, was the grandmother of Anne Boleyn, second wife of King Henry VIII of England.

St Canice’s Cathedral with its Round Tower were founded in the 6th century – Cill Channigh (pr. Kil-kenny) is the Gaelic for the Church of Canice. The Round Tower – one of only two that people can climb in Ireland – is the city’s oldest building, with excellent views for those brave enough to reach the top.

The highest air temperature ever recorded in Ireland was 33.3 °C (91.9 °F), at Kilkenny Castle on 26 June 1887.

The extensive ruins of Jerpoint Abbey – 6km from the house – is another ecclesiastical site notable for its stone carvings. Built in 1180, it survived till Henry the VIII got hold of it during the period of the dissolution of the monasteries in the 1500’s.

A replica famine ship, the Dunbrody, is now berthed on the quay in New Ross and offers visitors an insight into life as a passenger during the 19th century when emigration to America was at its peak.

It was from a farm here in New Ross that President John F. Kennedy’s great-grandfather emigrated to America in 1848 on just such a ship.

A short passage, punctuated with French doors to the rear garden, opens into a more recent and unanticipated addition – an expansive and airy, living space.

The kitchen zone spans one side of the room, with appliances and storage tucked under a stony white work surface, behind stainless steel doors.

A generous eight-seater circular dining table occupies the centre, but the centrepiece of the room is undoubtably the dramatic luminous brushed-scarlet, modular corner-seating, that will bring a smile to your face.

French doors in the end wall open onto a white flagged patio – for those sultry summer sunsets.

At the opposite end of the room, a broad archway framed in a teal green wood panelling unveils a cosy carpeted sitting room, with an open-hearth fireplace and wall mounted TV.

You also get to see where that stable half door from the entrance hall leads…

Bedrooms

Sumptuous double bedrooms are located at either end of this long cottage.

The master bedroom boasts French doors that open onto a small side yard.

A splendid wood-panelled walkthrough bathroom, with double monsoon showers and his-and-her basins, is neatly concealed around the back of the truncated bed head.


 Following the peachy colour theme, the second double bedroom is delightful.

Softly feminine, the adjacent ensuite bathroom has a fabulous, deep if short slipper bath, in addition to a more traditional shower.

Decidedly steep stairs climb to a diminutive nursery-style kid’s room that utilises the attic space above the bathroom. It comes with sub-adult ceiling and door heights, and a vivid citrus paintjob.

Above the bunk room, occupying the loft space, is a TV den ideally suited for kids, and furnished accordingly. 

Outside

Stradbally Cove, with its sheltered sandy beach is just 50 metres down the narrow lane that cuts through the property. Across the lane is a spacious and well-maintained garden bordering the river for your exclusive use.

Around the cliff side of the cottage, an outdoor shower is being fitted – very handy for sandy people and wetsuits.

Aside from the lawn and patio, the gardens to the rear of the house feature a delightful rose arched walkway. There is a large gravelled parking area with dedicated access beyond that.

Within the portico at the back entrance, there is a separate laundry room.

The cottage is adjacent to an historic Estate which ranges for 340 acres West of Stradbally Village and is bisected by the twisting river Tay. It is home to 156 acres of woodland comprising of more than 150,000 trees – some dating back to the mid-18th century.

The owners occupy the eponymous Georgian mansion at the centre of this private estate, but visitors are free to enjoy the walled garden, impeccably reproduced Victorian glasshouse, and paddocks of grazing red deer.

Reviews

 

Yes, we all enjoyed our stay at Cove Lodge..

We would have appreciated nicer weather but we still enjoyed our short visit. The one very good day we had showed just how beautiful county Waterford is. The house was amazing and so well equipped. We all enjoyed being so close to the sea and the lovely river. My husband and I enjoyed watching the birds on the river and on the cove. My 2 granddaughters loved the extra rooms up the staircases.

Out & About

 
This stretch of Southern Coastline known as the Copper Coast, just buzzes with undiscovered gems

We just can’t list them all, so here are a few of our favourites…

For unique ways to experience the hidden gems on the Copper Coast we recommend you contact Waterford Camino Tours

 

The Locality

 

 
Stradbally is a short uphill walk from the cottage, and has a grocery shop and a couple of pubs, but for a full range of shops, Dungarvan, a 15-minute drive along the coast is your best bet.

Above Stradbally, there is the substantial ruin of the largest medieval church in rural Ireland. It contains a fortified presbytery, probably built for protection during the 13th century disputes between two noble Waterford dynasties, the Powers and Fitzgeralds, whose boundary lands ran through the area.

This region known as the Copper Coast gets its name from the copper mines that were active in the 19th century. It is a 20km stretch of sometimes-stormy cliffs and beachy coves that has more than its fair share of ship wrecks.

About half an hour away, the magnificent Lismore Castle with its long and distinguished history, has splendid gardens open to the public during the summer months, and compelling cultural events are held in the town throughout the year.

They are mad about cycling in Dungarvan, and it was here that the first cycling club in Ireland was founded in 1869. The local club went on to win the first ever bike race in the British Isles. They still have the cup to prove it. It is fitting that one of the country’s most loved cycle route the Waterford Greenway runs through the region.

In Dungarvan, King John’s Castle, an Anglo-Norman fortification ( 1185) would have originally been entered by drawbridge. It is undergoing reconstruction but there are guided tours, an audio-visual show and exhibitions during the summer season.

Tramore is about 35 minutes away, and is a popular resort for tourists in the summer. It has a 5km beach, sand dunes looking out onto the Atlantic Ocean, and a well-deserved reputation for surfing, kitesurfing and windsurfing.

Clonea Strand is much closer, is one of the finest blue flag beaches in the region, and also has a growing reputation as a good surfing beach.

Road Bowling is a traditional and popular local sport that requires hours of practice and technique to master. 28oz steel balls are rolled in turn for just over a mile along roads from Fenor to Annestown.

Mahon Falls is a dramatic 80m waterfall nestled in the Comeragh Mountains surrounded by breathtaking scenery. There is a car park near Lemybrien 15 minutes away from the house with a not too strenuous thereafter, so don’t miss it.

Waterford, about 45 minutes away, is Ireland’s oldest city. Originally a Viking settlement, it is now a major port with much to see and do. Glass, or crystal, was manufactured in the city from 1783 until early 2009, when the factory there was eventually shut down. There is a great annual Viking marathon in June.

Pipers Cottage

“Oh Danny Boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling……..”

Book this home

Ardgroom Co. Cork

 

A very special, private home set above the sheltered shores of Ardgroom harbour, Pipers Cottage is surrounded by its own 11 acres of pasture and woodland with its own shoreline and private beach.

But more than that, it’s glorious secluded location and stunning private views makes Pipers the perfect spot to simply unwind and enjoy and explore the extraordinary natural power and beauty that is here in Beara.

 

A Musical Rest..

The house is built within the grounds of the 19th century home of Canon Goodman, the ruins of which provide a magical backdrop to views over Ardgroom harbour towards the Kerry and Caha mountains.

Glorious mature stands of beech, oak and plane trees line the drive and stand proudly in the surrounding meadows. We will tell you later of the great and good Canon, but first to the home, Pipers.

To set the scene, here are just some of the views from the house, sunporch and garden: private, intimate, glorious, unchanged and special.

Pipers is a kilometre and a half from the village of Ardgroom with its excellent shop, cafe and pub (Village Inn).

The home provides modern and comfortable accommodation for up to four in two bedrooms, one a double and the other with twin beds.

The south-facing terrace overlooking the harbour is well sheltered and is an absolute sun trap. A glorious spot to spend the day with the cows grazing on the green hills beyond and wonderful and often rarely seen seabirds and wildlife hunting in the waters below (Gannets, Terns, Guillemots, Sandpipers, Great Northern Divers, Herons, Sea Otters and Hares to name but a few).

The terrace entrance leads into the open plan living area through a convenient and spacious porch.

The living area comfortably accommodates six around a Scandinavian wood burning stove that combines with central heating to ensure maximum snugness on those very occasional dampish days !

Leading from the dining area is a fully equipped modern kitchen. Bright, a delight to use and spacious with views out into the surrounding gardens.

The back door into the house leads from the kitchen providing easy and direct access for car loading and unloading. A well-equipped laundry is also provided next to the kitchen

Bedrooms

The stairs to the bedrooms lead from the living area to a landing above with the master bedroom to the right and the second bedroom to the left.

The master bedroom is spacious and cosey. Three windows offer lovely views across the harbour to the hills and mountains beyond.
The sky light above the bed ensures that the room is always well and softly lit. And on the odd blowy night allows you to really hear the wind. Just magic.

The second bedroom consists of two single beds.

The bright and airy bathroom at the top of the stairs provides a power shower with lashings of hot water. Compact, spotless, with all that you need.

 

Pipers was built in 1900 but has been sensitively modernised while remaining true to its proud Beara roots. The house is full of lovely touches which reach back and connect you to the years gone by.

Beara has many fine resident artists and potters. Their work is exhibited in Kenmare, Castletown and Bantry or better still, follow the booklet “Beara Art Trail” and you can visit them in their own studios. Well worth doing, as they are close by.

So now to Canon Goodman; who was truly well named.
Pipers is situated in the grounds of a former rectory that once was his home.

Born in Dingle in 1828 he spent a life-time devoted to the well-being of Ireland and all its people. A fluent Irish speaker from childhood his life was one of service, education and music. Indeed he became renowned for his playing of the Uileann pipes.

His unique collection of over 2000 traditional Irish melodies for the pipe in volumes known as ‘The tunes of the Munster Pipers’ are now housed in the library of Trinity College, Dublin.

It was while in Ardgroom that the Canon commenced this collection.
And so it is that Pipers Cottage came to be named in memory of a very remarkable and good man.
His funeral in January 1896 was of “enormous proportions” and bore testimony to his life of devotion to Ireland, its people and music. “His generosity to the poor left him without wealth at the end. Yet he died rich, for money could not buy the esteem and respect of his countrymen which were without limit or reserve.”

Reflect on this exemplary life, listen to the message in the Piper’s call as you sit by his once fine home and take in, as he surely often did himself, the unspoilt beauty and peace of Ardgroom harbour with Collorus and the Caha mountains beyond.
It has changed little in 200 years and remains an inspiration.

The fine old stone buildings around the Canon’s former home to-day form a beautiful sheltered quadrangle ideal for outside dining. A barbeque is of course provided.

 

Restrictions

Smoking – No, sorry!
Parties – The owners regret Stag, Hen, Wedding or 21st parties are not admissible.
Children – The property is not suitable for children under the age of 12.
Pets – No, sorry!

 

Pipers Cottage is a very special place. And it continues to reach out and touches all those who have had the good fortune to track it down and stay in this lovely place on this beautiful peninsula.

If you would be so good.

 Piper’s Cottage is new to Unique Irish Homes Summer 2021. If you visit and feel the need; let us know how it went…

The Cottage is deeply appreciated by past guests…

 

“The place is very special. The cottage the best bolthole ever. We could not have asked for more. And the views…………!!!” 

(Sept 2017, Neil and Alan, Lancashire UK.)

What a beautiful cottage Pipers is. On the website it looked great already, but in real life the views, the atmosphere and the house itself are even better.”

(May 2015, Dick, Carolyn and family. Boston USA)

“We could not have picked a better place to stay in Ireland. These wonderful views from the terrace and cosy cottage will stay in our hearts forever.”

(July, 2020. Karin, Radic, Vaclav. Pila Czech Republic.)

 

Out & About

 

Isolated but not remote, the Beara Peninsula defies analysis.
The sea, the air, the history, there’s so much to explore …

Here are some of our favourites…

 

The Locality

 

 

The nearest town for basic requirements is Ardgroom just 3km away. Close to the village there is a picturesque stone circle, one of a plethora of megalithic monuments to be found in the region.

For more serious shopping, gourmet restaurants, and an informal farmers market on Wednesdays, Kenmare is a delightful 30 minute drive back up the Bay.

The rugged Beara peninsular is shared by counties Cork and Kerry – Cove Lodge is balanced on the border. The Ring of Beara road twists its way around this headland, exposing colourful hamlets in its path. Narrow, but with minimal traffic, it is a splendid tour, and the views are spectacular. For Cyclists or walkers the Beara Way offers a safer route.

Wild Atlantic Way
Click here to find out more…

At the tip of the peninsula a spur off the loop road continues to Ballaghboy. From here you can catch Irelands only cable car for the ten minute ride to Dursey Island. The rickety car carries six passengers (or the equivalent in sheep) about 250m above infamous Dursey Sound, where strong tides make travelling by boat hazardous.

photo – Nigel Cox

With magnificent views stretching from the Skelligs to Mizen Head, only a handful of inhabitants brave this wild and windy island. Dolphins, whales and innocent basking sharks are frequently seen in the surrounding seas.

The Caha Mountain range runs down the spine of Beara, and Hungry Hill is the highest of its peaks. The panorama at the top is of course staggering, but the route is a bit all-terrain and needs fine weather.

To cross back to Cove Lodge, don’t miss the Tim Healy Pass. This zigzag road is worth it for the wonderful scenery, and is one of the classic Irish Car Rally stages.

photo – John Gibson

For a period during the 19th century copper mining was the major industry in the area, and much evidence still exists in the small town of Allihies where there is an interesting museum.

Castletownbere on the southern side of the peninsula is Irelands largest white fish port. The harbour is deep and is reputed to be one of the safest in the world. Sheltered by Bear Island, it has a long military history.

The tiny Garnish Island, just off the town of Glengarrif demonstrates this in a series of gardens flush with rhododendrons, azaleas and other surprising plants.

There are ample sites for fishing into deep water straight off the rocky Beara shoreline. Glenbeg Lake, is also teeming with trout and the short Glenmore river spate is extremely prolific, with runs of Spring Salmon coming in March, and Sea-Trout in mid June to late July.

How to get there – Car advised…


By Air: Cheap flights to Kerry Airport (Farrenfore) Cork, Dublin or Shannon.
Kerry Airport – approx 1.5 hour from house.
Cork Airport – approx 2 hours from house.
Shannon Airport – approx 3 hours from house.
Dublin Airport – approx 4.5 hours from house.

By Sea: Ferry crossings from Pembroke/Fishguard to Rosslare.

Dublin City Port/Holyhead has a fast crossing and is approx 4.5 hours from house

Drombeg is centrally heated throughout supplemented by a simple to use and very effective Scandinavian wood-burning stove (Yotul). So sunny and bright on those fine days and snug and warm at other times.

The fully equipped, modern kitchen leads from the dining room and includes a delightful bright breakfast area.

A wonderful place coffee in hand to ease into the day while immersed in the views north over the sea to the Kerry mountains and east over Ardgroom harbour to the Caha mountains beyond.

The upstairs bedrooms are accessed by stairs leading from the living area.

The second bedroom (to the right) provides two single beds. Lit by sky lights the snug space is bright and airey with views over the fields and hedgerows towards Ardgroom and Glenbeg lake.

The bathroom on the landing between both bedrooms offers a power-shower supplied with lashings of hot water. As with the rest of the house the bathroom is airy and spotless.

Fully modernised Drombeg offers totally comfortable modern day living while freshly painted thick stone walls and traditional furnishing hark back to its proud, traditional Beara roots.

Enjoy the lovely paintings by local artists in Beara which can be further experienced in galleries in Kenmare and by following the Beara artists trail guide which will take you right to their studios

Outside

Given its wonderful position, the gardens of Drombeg surrounding the house offer sheltered sitting areas to the east, north and west.

The terrace provides views to the east over Ardgroom harbour and the Caha mountains and north across Kenmare Bay to the Kerry mountains. The terrace is equipped with comfortable outdoor seating and large table. A portable barbeque is provided. A perfect place to watch the sun set and the moon rise, or the sun rise and the moon set depending on how you have chosen to spend your days.

To the east a private garden provides a second secluded and sheltered area.

It also features beautiful traditional farm outbuildings that have recently been finely restored.

A wonderful magic place-both this cottage and Beara. The view was incredible and our cow neighbours fun and friendly. Beara itself was beyond words: the beauty, not touristy, just a beautiful, haunting, spectacular world that we will always cherish and hopefully come back to.” (June 2019, John and Karen, Vermont, USA).

To Sheila and Jo, Thank you. All expectations came true ! This cottage, this place, the surroundings, the mountains, the view, the sky, the clouds, the rain, the sun, the waterfalls, the ocean…It all came together and we loved it. (August 2019. Erik and Aline, Holland)”.

Well, what can we say that has not been said by the many who have already stayed here? We don’t want to leave…..ever…… ( July, 2017. Angela and Angus, Rotheram, UK).

The cottage became home, the second we stepped in. We enjoyed the peace and the tranquility- the bumble bees being the noisiest sound. And on our last night we  watched the Milky Way and falling stars. We will carry all this back with us, especially the most beautiful views ever…… (August 2017, Vendulka and family, NYC, USA).

For more serious shopping, working port town Castletown-Bearhaven is just 17 minutes by car.

Beara is a landscape of rolling grasslands and jagged hills, split centrally between Cork and Kerry. Kerry’s foodie hotspot Kenmare and Cork’s mountain valley retreat, Glengarriff are nearly equidistant from Drombeg Cottage, each about 40 minutes by car.

County Waterford

This impressive old Georgian country house sits on a bluff with commanding views of the woodlands, walled gardens and walkways that make up Waterford’s Woodhouse Estate.
Capacious enough to cater for a large family, it is ideally placed for cycling trips around the headlands and coves of Ireland’s Copper Coast, hill-walking in the Comeragh Mountains, or just traipsing around this elegant estate.

 

Space for all the family

A finely proportioned building with generous room sizes, Walkers Cottage has recently been extended to the rear, and completely refurbished to a very high standard.

A house of two halves, the original 19th century home which first greets you has thick walls with the original six over six, three section sash windows bracketed by simple solid shutters.

The living room to one side of the lobby is perfect for family games, both board and more high-tech.

There is an abundance of logs from the estate to power the wood burning stove.

To the opposite side of the hall, a rustic dining table seats eight for large meals or entertaining on with painted Van Gogh chairs. There’s even a blackboard for murals or menus.

Moulded ceiling friezes and solid panel doors are of traditional country house style, augmented by a beautiful white limestone floor, soft buttermilk tones and flush lighting.

A deep arch to the rear opens seamlessly through to the bright family kitchen of the extended house.
The two rooms are united by walls of pale pumpkin, and bleached oak floor boards.

French doors open southwards from the kitchen into the panoramic gardens.

The remainder of the ground floor consists of a large stylish bathroom and a spacious utility room and boot lobby.

You encounter an idiosyncratic collection of artworks in key locations throughout the house.

 

A carpeted winder stair takes you up to the bedrooms – one on each corner of the house – and a second family bathroom complete with dual head shower.

Children get an irresistible twin bedroom of their own. Candy pink with very special AA Milne wallpaper.

A winged headboard tops the sumptuous double bed in the crimson bedroom, where floor boards creak with age from a previous century.

Outside

Walkers Cottage is perched above the parklands of the historic Woodhouse Estate ranging for 340 acres West from Stradbally village. The property is bisected by the meandering river Tay, which swirls right past the Lodge and escapes under the road bridge for a final dash to the Atlantic. 156 acres of woodland comprising of more than 150,000 trees – some dating back to the mid 18th century – await exploration either on foot or on cycle tracks.

 

Stradbally Cove with its sheltered sandy beach is across the road from the Gate Lodge.

The owners occupy the eponymous Georgian mansion at the centre of this private estate, but visitors are free to enjoy the walled garden, impeccably reproduced Victorian glasshouse, and paddocks of grazing red deer.

Please enquire about fishing rights or other activities on the estate.
