Hopefully, you’ve been enjoying our recent travel series that’s shining the spotlight on some of the best places to stay in Ireland.
Over the past couple of weeks, we’ve looked at:
Today’s post is all about a beautiful old thatch cottage in Thurles
There’s something wonderfully iconic about a thatched Irish cottage.
It’s probably due to the fact that I associate them with happy memories of getting lost in rural Ireland, but it could just as easily be the sheer charm that they tend to emit by the bucket-load.
Who cares… look at this place ??
This little beauty is like something that’s been plucked straight from a time that Ireland has long forgotten.
The freshly painted white walls and the yellowy-orange window trims are slick, but the thatch is the icing on the cake.
I may have fallen in love with this place…
This cottage still boasts all of its original features, each of which have been lovingly restored and preserved by owners Grace and Tom.
What the host has to say:
‘This is the perfect place for a romantic escape! It is a very private cottage with lots of space and comfort for 2 people.
Guests can enjoy complimentary scones on arrival and a bottle of wine to share by the fire. It boasts some of the oldest thatch features found in Ireland with its original exposed roof inside. There is a large stove in the open fireplace, a shower and bath, wardrobe space and comfortable bed with excellent quality bed linen.’
I can easily picture myself kicking back here with a bottle of beer on a wet and windy Saturday night, as a storm blasts away outside.
A little slice of magic.
Fancy staying here?
A night in this thatch cottage will set you back around €76 (check their listing for more info).
The cottage is finely place near The Rock of Cashel, Holycross Abbey and the GAA museum. for anyone visiting in search of some things to do.
