Historic Beech Tree Cottage in County Mayo Ireland offered at €179,000

Idyllic Irish registered thatched roof cottage for sale in County Mayo's countryside

Look at this iconic beauty dubbed “Beech Tree Cottage” with her white washed stone set against the pop of red trim! I’m dying over here over pretty much everything — that stable door, those slate tiles in the living room, the pitched ceilings, all the thick stone walls, and of course that roof. And can we just have a moment of silence for that fireplace insert in the most gorgeous shade of green I have ever seen?!

With a dwindling number of thatched cottages left on the whole island of Ireland, these dwellings are more precious than ever. As durable as they are environmentally friendly, Irish thatched cottages are the products of centuries of history and tradition. While they currently make up a minuscule percent of the total housing stock in Ireland, in the 1800s, as much as half of the population slept under thatched roofs. (Source:
