Ballinacourty Thatch Cottage

Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 4
Dungarvan, County Waterford
Situated just 3 miles from the lovely seaside town of Dungarvan in the south east coast of Ireland. The property is cosy and is ideal for a getaway. It is just 300 yards from the beach, perfect for swimming or surfing and also for fishing. If you feel energetic enough you can walk or cycle into Dungarvan town on the cycling / walking paths only 200 yards from the cottage. The Deise Greenway is a must. Travel through tunnels and over viaducts at your leisure or on bikes. The Greenway goes the whole way from Dungarvan to Waterford with breath taking views.

There are 3 golf courses locally. Gold Coa...

We have our summer house next door to the cottage. We will be there when you arrive to meet you and will be there for the first few days of your stay. We are always at the end of a phone line. Just down the road is a small beach. As you walk down towards the beach the golf course is on your right and the start of the greenway is on your left.
