€59,000 for Mayo cottage with ‘oodles of charm’ and traditional character

Mayo Cottage for Sale

A “charming” cottage has just hit the property market in Meelickmore, Claremorris, Co Mayo.

According to the selling agent, this is a “gorgeous” traditional Irish stone cottage in a “tranquil, pastoral” setting.

This cottage has what the agent described as “oodles of character” and is “very attractive” as you approach with its whitewashed walls and red galvanised roof.

Its accommodation, traditional in its layout, has three separate rooms, a living room in the centre of the house with two bedrooms on either end.

The open-plan living room in the centre of the house is completed by the ‘hag’. This is an add-on to the house which was used for sleeping and is adjacent to the fire.

The large open fire has a working ‘crane’ which holds pots that swing in and out of the open fire for cooking.

The selling agent said:

“Heart of the home is the inscription over the fireplace which is the focal point of the room.”

“There is an attic space accessed from the living room which was used for storage,” the spokesperson added.

Furthermore, there is an electricity supply connected to the house and a water supply from a local scheme. However, according to the agent, it is not connected.

Beside the house, you will find a grove of 450 trees planted in recent years, consisting of birch, mountain ash and alder.

Furthermore, there is also a stone shed which you could utilise as a fuel store.



The property is just three miles from the town of Claremorris and two miles from the N17 Galway to Sligo Road.

Meelickmore National school is within walking distance, approximately 800m away.

There are approximately two-acres to the rear of the cottage available to purchase separately.

The property firm is seeking €59,000 for this cottage.
