Atmospheric Charms of Village Life

This vacation home rental in Ireland invites you to settle in and bask in the atmospheric charm and centuries old history of the emerald isle. A fun, lighthearted restoration has given this ancient cottage and barn new life with a nostalgic sweetness and sense of belonging in the village.

Description

Dating back to the 17th century, this vacation home rental in Ireland is  located directly on the village green in the town of Duleek. Part of some of the most ancient settlements along the island’s eastern coast, it’s said that the building stood here during the epic Battle of the Boyne.  

Built from stone with a thatched roof, the home was in a state of disrepair before the current restoration brought it back to life.

Beautifully restored to retain much of its traditional character, the whitewashed exteriors look much as they have for hundreds of years, while the interiors have been brightened and modernized with a cheerful and rather eclectic update.  

The cozy sitting room has an electric hearth that warms the space while the large eat-in kitchen which opens out to a side garden is a bright and thoroughly modernized space.

The cottage has room for up to ten guests. There is a double bedroom with an adjacent bathroom on the ground floor, this bedroom can also include a single foldaway bed. There are three double bedrooms upstairs. Two bedrooms can be made up with double OR twin beds (plus one single foldaway bed) and a third bedroom with twin beds and an en-suite shower room. 

The house features an eclectic mix of period and new furniture, fixtures and fittings and all of the comforts of home.

There is a lovely patio garden with picnic tables for dining alfresco and enjoying the summer sun. 

The adjacent barn is also available to rent  through BoutiqueHomes.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Wifi throughout, TV with Google Chromecast and DVD player, games, toys, kitchen and bath amenities, laundry facilities, free on street parking.

    This house from the outside does not do it justice . Once inside you are amazed with everything and all the room available to relax in . This cottage is centrally located to visit a lot of historical monuments and places of interest within the Boyne Valley . We would like to visit the area again when the weather is warmer in the summer months.

    Connel’s House was a real pleasure to stay in. A group of 7 of us have just spent a really lovely St Patrick’s weekend there. The old 17th century thatched cottage has been sensitively renovated to provide wonderful, comfortable, modern accomodation with all the amenities you could wish for, whilst still keeping the feeling of the old cottage. One thing to note is that two bedrooms share a bathroom ‘Jack and Jill’ style (both bedrooms have access to the bathroom from opposite sides, with lockable doors). Two of our couples used it perfectly well though … does just need a little organisation in the mornings!! There is parking right outside, and a bus service to Dublin (and probably other places) on the road very close to the cottage, shops nearby for daily provisions, a lovely restaurant just around the corner, and lots of interesting things to see and do in the area. Karla helped us a lot with suggestions of where to eat, and local attractions, and always responded very quickly to any messages we sent. Couldn’t fault it – lovely holiday – thank you Karla!

    We stayed in Karla’s beautiful cottage for two days with a large group of our closest friends. The cottage is spacious, cosy, beautifully decorated and was perfect for us to hang out, have a tasty BBQ and catch up. We cooked for lots of people multiple times throughout the few days we were there and the kitchen is very well stocked with top class appliances. The bedrooms are warm and cosy and the beds were plush. Communication with Karla was quick and easy at all times. She was clear and very accommodating and recommended local caterers to help supply our large group. She even left us so delicious homemade biscuits and some sweeties. In short she spoiled us! The area is a delightful combination of quietness and closeness to local shops. All our guests were very impressed with the cottage and we would very happily stay there again. 5 stars all-round!

    I knew this place would be good – from the photos, the reviews, and Karla’s quick responses. She was more than willing to accommodate little extras we needed for babies in our group. Her provision of local info etc is concise but comprehensive – just what you need. She was also very adaptable when we weren’t sure what time we would arrive. And the property is an absolute delight in terms of space, cleanliness and tasteful interior decor – we returned home from a two-day break with 7 children feeling totally relaxed. Another plus – excellent mattresses on all beds. Makes all the difference. I’d recommend this property without hesitation! Ideal for exploring Dublin and its environs.

    Everything was absolutely wonderful at Karla’s. She has thought of everything. There were even adapters for us to use for our American electronics. She was gracious enough to let us check in early and stay a bit later on check out since we had car rental troubles. Everything was absolutely wonderful! Thank you so much for the wonderful stay. It was just great!

    My family and I had the most amazing time in Karla’s thatched cottage! It was so warm, cozy and beautifully decorated! Karla couldn’t have been sweeter and even left us with a homemade carrot cake. Make sure to explore the ruins around the corner. Overall it was an absolutely fabulous place to stay for the 7 of us. Highly recommend it without hesitation!!

    If your hearts desire is to spend time in Ireland in a beautiful, unique, thatched, 300 year old cottage that has been restored to the highest of standards, tastefully decorated, spacious and spotlessly clean, then this is the place to stay. Can’t speak highly enough of my family and extended families time there. We all agreed this unique place made our holiday. Nothing has been chosen randomly. Every detail from the quality bed linen to the beautiful cutlery, to the gorgeous interiors and spacious living area, has been meticulously thought out. If you think of something that you would love in a holiday home, don’t worry, it’s already there. Thank goodness Karla was the one who rescued a piece of Ireland’s National Heritage. Can’t say enough about the place and Karla, well, she is a rare find. A truly talented lady, of good taste, high standards and a lovely, genuine, warm and friendly person. Do yourself a favour whilst there and dine at the Spire restaurant….fabulous meal, very reasonable and once again a unique experience.
