Fairytale living in a picture-perfect €395,000 Offaly cottage

It even has a feature round tower and water fountains.

ONLY A SHORT DRIVE from Tullamore town and just over an hour from Dublin lies a thatched Offaly home that is nothing short of a fairytale.

Packed with medieval charm, the three-bedroom home has stone external walls, a thatched roof and a water fountain, all built on 0.9 acres of landscaped, split-level gardens.
