There is something so attractive about the notion of living in a small cottage in rural Ireland and escaping the rat race and higher prices in the bigger cities.

So, we've been looking around the country and playing with a top budget of €250,000 to see what we could find in terms of dream homes. 

Hopefully, you'll be able to work remotely, find a job rurally, commute or maybe not even need to work anymore.

Either way, it's time to improve your lifestyle in one of these amazing cottages...

1. Ballyconnigar, Blackwater, Co. Wexford - €230,000
