It's blast from the past

The Old Thatch, a little yellow cottage in Lemybrien, Co Waterford, is reportedly about 400 years old. So while it may seem small, at only 885 sq ft, just imagine how many children you would have had to raise there back in the 17th century.

The cottage is in good nick, with a living room and kitchen on its ground floor, separated by one of those massive, old-style double chimneys.

Also on the lower level are two bedrooms and a shower room. The third bedroom, much bigger at 14ft by 15ft, 6in, is up the stairs that lead from the kitchen.

The Old Thatch is in the village of Lemybrien in the foothills of the Monavullagh Mountains, and about half an hour's drive from Waterford city. The closest town is the seaside resort of Dungarvan.

It's on the market for €95,000 with agent Sherry FitzGerald Reynolds in Dungarvan (058 23444).
