The Lost Cottage: Ireland’s Most Unique, Luxurious & Stunning Self-Catering Cottage

Where luxury and charm meet an out-of-this-world view

I came across the Lost Cottage a few weeks back while doing some research on our guide to the most unusual places to stay in Ireland.

Finding places like this make me happy.

They also give me painful levels of #GaffEnvy (House Envy, for our non-Irish readers).

Can you see why…

The ridiculously stylish interior

The Lost Cottage was recently nominated for a Mies van der Rohe Award.

Now, I’ve no idea who Mies van der Rohe actually is, but it’s clear that the people dishing out the awards in his name clearly known their stuff.

The interior of the structure is stylish and luxurious thanks to an extensive renovation.

However, the charm of this Irish cottage, which was once a winter refuge to a herd of mountain goats, remains in-tact.

The white-washed walls, the wooden floors (the original mud floor was stripped back and furnished from local Douglas Fir), the cosy blanketed chairs and couches, and the other minimalist features give this cottage the perfect mix of old world and new.
