Tastefully-decorated throughout, this Ballyhack cottage exudes style and comfort for everyone. For flexibility and convenience, this beautiful Wexford cottage has four immaculate bedrooms, one of which has an en-suite shower room, and a pull-out bed for added flexibility. The entire cottage is bright and airy and wonderful social evenings can be had over a delicious home-cooked meal in the stylish kitchen which opens out to the rear garden so on those sunny afternoons you can take your lunch outside alfresco style! For those slightly colder evenings you can retire to the sitting room with a glass of wine and curl up in front of the woodburning stove. The rear garden offers a safe place for the kids to play whilst you enjoy a local paper or your favourite book before planning the next day’s activities. The coastal village of Ballyhack exudes all the charm and character that you would expect from an Irish fishing village, with a traditional pub and shop and many picturesque boats moored in the harbour.
