This traditional thatch cottage is nestled in the foothills of the Slieve Bloom Mountains, 3 miles from Mountrath, 5 miles from the heritage town of Abbeyleix and within 1 hour of Dublin city. The property has been lovingly restored yet retains original features including a traditional Irish fireplace in the lounge, exposed oak beams, traditional oak dresser and low doors (not of standard height) which blend in with all modern conveniences which include free Wi-Fi internet access.
