A Famine-era cottage for sale in County Galway could be yours for just €145,000 ($170,000).

The three-bedroom thatched cottage, located in Tynagh outside Loughrea, dates back to the 1850s and retains many of the original features and character of the era. 

The house's exterior has been expertly maintained and remains in excellent condition, while it boasts a newly thatched roof completed two years ago. 

The cottage is a listed Heritage building and features a one-acre field and a road frontage of 80 meters. 

An adjacent building that once served as Tynagh's cinema in the 1950s and '60s is also included in the sale. The building still retains the seating, stage, and screen of the old cinema.
