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…

About the Lost Cottage
Beautifully set within 85 acres of private land in Treangarriv, County Kerry, the Lost Cottage is a little chunk of paradise.
For those of you in search of luxury, isolation and a view that’ll knock you sideways, then keep on reading.
This is the scenery that the cottage faces out onto.
And you can soak it all up right from your bed.
Or while you stand outside in the morning, gulping down fresh air and toasting the day with a strong cup of coffee.
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.
Perfect for an active break
For those of you in search of an active holiday, you’re perfectly placed to explore some of the best that Kerry has to offer.
Or just spend your time chilling by the fire and gazing out at the view.
How much a night here will set you back
A 4-night stay at the Lost Cottage in July, based on a group of 4, will set you back €2,601.
Which works our at €162 per person per night.
