This charming cottage is best described by its owner.........

This vernacular Irish fisherman’s cottage’s quaint, shy charm is a bit of a curiosity in Dalkey. It remains a small, proud, almost forgotten specimen of rural Ireland among the Mansions and Castles of Coliemore Road.

The main room with two turf fires, black iron cranes, yellow dresser, settle bed, and loft, it’s 18th century harnen stands for toasting oatcakes, pre-famine black pots, Staffordshire dogs and Sacred Heart are synonymous with Irish heritage. This magical setting is so rare you will find it impossible to replicate it anywhere in Ireland. A one minute walk from the sea and Coliemore Harbour with a five minute ferry ride to Dalkey's ancient 7th Century monastic island which the Vikings used as a base - it is picture postcard but authentic.

My father restored the entire cottage over a period of six years.

Outside the main room there is a superb professional kitchen that uses marble and shiny copper to give it a funky edge. The bathroom and bedroom are luxurious and unusual. The cottage is less than an hour by car from Dublin airport, hospitals and Dublin City Centre. The Dart from Dalkey brings you straight into the City Centre.
