The space
A charming and cozy three bedroom cottage in the heart of rural Ireland situated in the Burren Lowlands.

On entering the cottage there is a small porch to the front where in the mornings you can catch the sun whilst watching the birds.

Off the living room are two of the bedrooms both having double beds, bedside lockers and lamps, and wardrobe space. The hot-press is located in one of these bedrooms. In the hot-press is an immersion water heater which heats water for both the kitchen sink and bathroom sink and it also heats the water for the bath. It needs to be switched on for about 10 minutes to heat water for sinks and about 30 minutes for the bath.

Also off the main living room area is another sitting/dining area. There is another small wood burning stove here to heat room. This room has another television with Playstation 3 and some games to use in it. There are some board games here also. There are couches and this room also has a dining table and six chairs. It can also be used as a quiet room away from kitchen and living area if there is a group of people staying.

It has a dining table with six chairs and double french doors which open out to the back garden.
