Take our money! We’re sold! Imagine the tranquility of spending time in this thatched cottage on 2.05 acres of garden in the wild and beautiful Donegal.
What can we say?! We’re in love. This thatched cottage has to be top our list of #ThatchedThursday choices at IrishCentral so far. This hideaway, quaint thatched cottage at Cluainte Cro, Glencolmcille, in County Donegal is just perfect.
Even its name is adorable. It’s called “The Bird's Nest”.
The cottage is on the market for $291,987 (€250,000). The house dates back to the 18th century and is set on 2.05 acres of gardens and woodland. The property also features a two-story detached art studio and a large stone outbuilding, which could be converted into extra accommodation.
The brochure says it all: “If you are looking for a change of lifestyle and a change of pace, this beautifully presented and unique property could fulfill your dreams.”
More great news, the house has been recently refurbished and extended, “retaining all the charm and character of a residence built in this era.”
As if the house itself isn’t enough it’s in Donegal, officially the coolest place in the world according to National Geographic.
The house is located on the outskirts of the Glencolmcille in an area renowned for its sandy beaches and rugged coastal features. The majestic Slieve League is just about 15 kilometers away and is a highly popular tourist destination attracting a large volume of visitors from all over the world.
