You can now make offers online for this roomy four-bed in the Tipperary countryside
Kilcarroon comes with over two acres and has an asking price of €290,000.


SECLUSION WITHOUT TOTAL isolation will always appeal if the idea of moving to the depths of the countryside, from a large town or city, is too much of a jump.

Perhaps best known for being the ancestral home of Ronald Reagan, former president of the United States, Ballyporeen is a small village in Co Tipperary. Under a kilometre outside the village sits Kilcarroon, a four-bed bungalow that comes with two outhouses – a large 154 m² shed that’s even larger than the house itself and a stable that’s 60 m², all of which sit on more than two acres of land.

Interested buyers can place and track offers in real time on this home, using Offers by Daft. This new platform from, Ireland’s largest property search site, provides transparency and flexibility to home buyers, agents and sellers.


Brought to market as a private treaty sale by Aidan O’Brien, this family home has a floor area of 118 m². With each room leading off a central hallway, there’s an abundance of natural light throughout this home, which can be a rare find when it comes to bungalows.


The large kitchen and dining area benefits from a wide window that looks out to the garden that can be access from the small adjoining utility room. There’s also a separate dining room for more formal meals that features a solid fuel stove and some built-in shelves. The room is flooded with light thanks to two large windows. 


The sitting room with its stone front fireplace has another built-in solid fuel stove and striking ceiling beams ensuring that this is a cosy space full of character.

Venture further down the hallway and you’ll come to the four bedrooms, all of which have timber floors that are in great nick along with radiators and power points making it clear that all these rooms will need is the furniture. 


All of the bedrooms share the family bathroom, which is a mix of old and new – a modern electric shower stands to the right separated from the more traditional tub, toilet and basin.

The house is walking distance to the small village, which is serviced regularly by a bus that will bring you to Mitchelstown, Fermoy, Glanmire and Cork city.

Mitchelstown and Cahir sit 12km and 21km away and Junction 12 of the M8 Motorway is about 10km. 


With a population of under 400, there’s no doubt Ballyporeen will offer a peaceful village life and a sense of a community but also good connections to larger towns and cities.

Kilcarroon, Ballyporeen, Co Tipperary is on the market for 290,000 through Aidan O’Brien.
