Just outside the village of Kinvara on the shores of Galway Bay is this 140sq m thatched cottage that can earn its keep with two separate guest suites to rent out. The main part of the house has a lot of character with this high timbered ceiling, yellow half-door and bumpy whitewashed walls. There’s a big wood-burning stove to keep things cosy. Historic Dunguaire Castle is a stroll away.
Plus: Close to the brilliant Burren
Minus: Thatch will need maintenance
