Does city life get a little too much for you at times? Dream of escaping it all and having a quieter life? Then moving to a charming cottage in the country may be the way to go. 

There really is something incredibly romantic about living in a cosy thatched home, and we think you'll agree these are five of the best you'll ever find in the country. 

Gorgeous.

1. Sandpiper Cottage, Mannin Bay, Ballyconneely, Co. Galway

An absolutely stunning little cottage that sits on 4 acres where you will enjoy some of the very best views in the county. Includes four bedrooms and three bathrooms, a barn and all the mod cons you'd expect in a modern house.

2. West Skeam Island, Roaring Water Bay, Skibbereen, Co. Cork

An iconic island, situated about 1.5 miles off the south west coast of Ireland. You'll have all the time in the world out here to fix up the cottage to your liking. The only downside is that obviously you'll have to bring everything you need in by boat, and there's the small matter of needing €2 million to buy the island. 

Still, some spot for a bit of privacy.

3. Furbo, Co Galway

Not to be confused with a popular Christmas toy from the '90s, Furbo is pretty much as far west as you can go and exactly what you'd think a Galway cottage should look like. Absolutely gorgeous spot to live and relatively affordable enough at €340,000.

4. Killinick, Co. Wexford

The property itself might be tidy and small, but you get to live on 4 hectares. You'll have five bedrooms and two bathrooms, all for €475,000.

5. Dargle Lodge 

Located in Bray, this cottage is like something out of a fairytale. It's surrounded by water and beautifully kitted out inside. The only drawback? That €800,000 price tag.
