Coldwood, Co Galway
€325k O’Donnellan & Joyce (091) 564 212
The farmhouse at Coldwood, about seven kilometres from Craughwell, is said to be 300 years old, and certainly there's a cottage on the site on the 1838 first-edition OS map. The thatched roof is gone, which means it now has skylights and a mezzanine at each gable end. There's a bedroom at one end and a seating area at the other. The main living room downstairs has the original stone fireplace. There's also a small kitchen and one ground-floor bedroom. Total floor area is 1,200 sq ft. It comes with three acres of land.
Finny Meadow Farm, Co Cork
€350k REA Celtic Properties (027) 52290
Finny Meadow Farm in Ballybane East is on five acres, and situated at the end of a long driveway, so it's well secluded. Not that there are any neighbours.

The master is on the first floor and has a balcony and an en-suite shower. Two other bedrooms are downstairs.
