From a thatched cottage in Co Kerry to a five-bed by a lake in Co Limerick.

WHETHER IT’S FOR relaxing as a family or hosting dinner with friends, sunrooms are a popular solution for adding space to a home without losing natural light.

This week we’re looking at four properties around the country with bright sunrooms – from a thatched cottage in Co Kerry to a five-bed by a lake in Co Limerick.

Glenbeigh, Co Kerry – €350,000

Located off the Ring of Kerry, this three-bed thatched cottage is the perfect escape from everyday life. The property boasts beautiful views of Dooks Bay, Caragh River and the Seefin Mountains, while there’s a quiet beach just a 10-minute walk away. Rossbeigh Beach is a 10-minute drive away.

The house itself has been recently renovated and enjoys plenty of natural light thanks to Velux and picture windows throughout, while floor-to-ceiling windows in the sunroom allow for views of the bay. Outside, a large decking area is the perfect spot to dine al fresco.
