Property Description:

Colman Grimes Estate Agents present the splendid 'Slade Cottage' to the market. Currently owned by an Irish family for a summer getaway, this seaside thatched cottage was brought back to life by an American couple in 1991. It was stripped and tastefully restored with a large architecturally designed extension added to give the space and comfort of modern living. Relax in the Finnish Sauna after a hard day in the garden or long walk on the beach. 

'Slade Cottage' 

It's hard to find a retreat like this; 20 metres above sea level and only metres down a one track lane to a mostly deserted beach. This 200 year old Irish Country Cottage has half doors and other finishing's to keep the old world character. However the cottage has luxury finishes throughout including a Finnish Sauna, Liscannor slate flooring, integrated skylight on both sides of the ridge in the main room of the extension, French Godin stove, Danish wooden window cills, relaxing bay window seat etc. Everything has been done down to gas heating and dual American & European voltage. 

And it's all nestled on almost an acre of mature gardens. With views over neighbouring pastures, the flora and fauna come to life in the summer. The little brook flowing through the gardens add to the tranquillity of the place. Just over 2 hours from Dublin makes it an easily accessible get away. 


This property is located on a secluded lane right at Blackhall Beach on the Bannow Bay Peninsula, South County Wexford. It is only a short drive to the village of Carrig-on-Bannow and the town Wellington Bridge is also close by. The area has an abundance of activities to cater for endless holidays; Coastal and Country walks, Swimming, Shore fishing, Horse riding, golfing etc. Experience Hook Lighthouse, Tintern Abbey and Kilmore Quay. It also benefits from having the Cities of Waterford (West) and Wexford (East) within 30 minute drive. It is only a 2 hour drive from Dublin.
