The property

A delightful family cottage with far-reaching sea views across to Hook Head and close to the beach in Duncannon, County Wexford.

This semi-detached Duncannon cottage provides cosy and quality accommodation with flexible sleeping arrangements.

The ground floor double has a convenient en-suite, and the sitting room provides a homely centre featuring a sumptuous open fire.

Outside, there is an enclosed garden with furniture, ideal for enjoying late summer evenings with a glass of wine.

This Duncannon cottage is situated on a well-kept holiday home development and there are tennis courts and a play area nearby.

The stunning beach at Duncannon is suitable for swimming and despite its popularity, still remains unspoilt and tranquil.

This small town is quintessentially Irish and features a range of quaint shops and a couple of pubs that regularly feature traditional music, so why not sample the "craic" before a quiet walk with only the sound of the sea for company?

This Duncannon cottage is close to many attractions including the scenic Hook Lighthouse, a plethora of beaches such as those at Cullenstown and Curracloe, and a heritage museum.

You can also take the short ferry to Passage East, which allows easy access to Waterford City and the seaside resort of Tramore.

The area is also rich in opportunities for walking, fishing, horse riding and golf.
