The Waterfall Lodge could be the perfect place for your Irish escape in County Cork.

Irish cottages are by and large as charming as they come - but this one beside a waterfall in West Cork takes charming to a whole new level.

Boasting “the perfect combination of modern comforts and old-world charm,” The Waterfall Lodge in Bantry, Gearhies, West Cork could be where you can make all your Irish dreams come true.

For sale through REA Celtic Properties, this one-bedroom cottage has been “sensitively and practically restored” and has an asking price of €325,000.

That price includes an outbuilding which the realtors note could be converted into additional accommodation that could be potentially rented, making for a great return on investment.

Situated on the “stunningly beautiful” Sheepshead Peninsula, The Waterfall Lodge takes its name from the waterfall that bounds one side of the property:

The property is nearby to The Sheepshead Walk, where you can enjoy a leisurely stroll or horse ride amidst the beauty of the Wild Atlantic Way.

The Lodge is less than a 10-minute drive to the heart of Bantry and less than an hour and a half drive to Cork Airport.

As if the stunning scenery wasn’t enough to entice you, Bantry was voted this year to be the best-kept town in all of Ireland
