Thatch Cottage, Laght, Rathcool, Mallow, Millstreet, Co. Cork, P51 PKR6

Nestled on the outskirts of Millstreet Town in County Cork lies a charming piece of history – a thatched cottage that has stood the test of time. Today, it stands not only as a testament to the architectural beauty of the past but also as a beacon of meticulous restoration and loving care.

This picturesque thatched cottage, with its traditional whitewashed walls and pristine thatched roof, embodies the essence of rural Ireland. The thatch, carefully restored to its former glory, glistens under the Irish sun, showcasing the intricate craftsmanship that has gone into its revival.

Thatching, an ancient craft, has been lovingly preserved here, with each reed carefully placed to create a waterproof and durable covering that is as practical as it is beautiful.

The journey of restoring this cottage was not an easy one. Years of weather and time had taken their toll, leaving the structure in need of extensive work. But with a vision to revive its original charm, a dedicated team embarked on a meticulous restoration project.
Local craftsmen, skilled in traditional methods, were brought in to ensure every detail was authentic. The walls were carefully repaired using lime plaster, a material that breathes and ages gracefully, maintaining the building’s integrity and aesthetic.

Inside, the cottage is a harmonious blend of old and new. Original wooden beams have been restored, and an open hearth serves as a cozy centerpiece, reminiscent of evenings spent by the fire in times gone by. The furnishings, though updated for comfort, respect the traditional style, creating an atmosphere that is both welcoming and nostalgic.

Every detail has been thoughtfully considered. Handcrafted furniture and traditional decor pieces give the interior a timeless appeal, allowing visitors to step back in time while enjoying modern comforts.


This cottage is more than just a building; it is a piece of Millstreet’s heritage, a connection to the past that has been lovingly preserved for future generations.

As the sun sets over the rolling hills of County Cork, the thatched cottage of Millstreet Town stands as a beautifully restored beacon of history, offering a window into the past and a cozy retreat for those who appreciate the timeless charm of rural Ireland.
