I love accommodation that’s a little bit different.
The more unique the better.
This type of rental is generally a little bit off the beaten path, but the experience you’ll have when you spend a night in one generally packs a mighty punch.
Enter the pre-famine cottage
This beautifully restored Pre-Famine cottage should appeal to those of you that fancy stepping into a bit of ‘old-world’ Ireland.
You can’t bate an aul thatch roof!
Listed on The Financial Times as ‘a tranquil escape from the bustle of modern life’, this is a cosy little getaway for those of you looking to abandon the city and embrace the countryside for a few nights.
There’s no TV or WiFi, so bring a book to chill with.

What the hosts say
‘The most important thing for us is warm Irish hospitality which we have been complimented on many times. We are a family business and started our great adventure in 1990 when we first bought the property.’
‘All the cottages were ruins and we restored them very carefully throughout the years trying to respect their history and authenticity. Of course we had to add the modern amenities for your comfort. We promise to deliver warmth, relaxation and reconnection with yourself which makes this place so unique.’
How much a night here will cost you
Thinking about staying in this pre-famine cottage?
I slapped in dates for 2 nights in October and, with cleaning feed, the price worked out at €250.
So, €62.50 per night, per person.
