If I ever win the lotto, one of the first things that I’ll be forking out for is a gaff like this one.
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.
This. Place. Is. DEADLY. But it’s also pretty damn expensive unless you visit with a group of 4 (info on price at the end).
Below, you’ll find out everything you need to know if you fancy spending a few nights isolated in one of the most picturesque corners in Ireland in a very unique cottage.
Welcome to the Lost Cottage in Kerry
Beautifully set within 85 acres of private land in Treangarriv in County Kerry, the Lost Cottage is a little chunk of isolated paradise.
For those of you in search of luxury, peace and quiet and a view that’ll knock you sideways, this place should tickle your fancy. Hit play on the video above and then get scrolling!
The views from this place are special
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 piping hot cup of coffee.
The interior is slick
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 know their stuff.
The interior of the structure is stylish and luxurious thanks to an extensive renovation, yet 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 cosy blanketed chairs and couches, and the other minimalist features give this cottage the perfect mix of old world and new.
How much a night here will set you back
The Lost Cottage isn’t cheap. I whacked in a three-night stay (Thursday to Sunday) in November 2020 for 4 people.
- The total was an eye-watering €1,136.40
- This breaks down to €284.10 per person
- This breaks down to €94.70 per person per night
€94.70 per person per night really isn’t that bad considering how unique the cottage is. You also have access to a fully kitted out kitchen, so you’ll save on eating out!
