Set in the pretty village of Arthurstown, it’s a renovated and now tasty terraced home carrying a €85,000 price guide via local agents PN O’Gorman.

They say it’s close to all the attractions of the Hook Peninsula, as well as numerous beaches such as Duncannon, and there’s a sweeping curve of shingle beach directly across the road from this scenically-set terraced bolt-hole.

Renovated with style, it’s got about 600 sq ft in all, over two floors, and has an open plan living room/kitchen, with wood-burning stove on the tiled ground floor, and the master bedroom with an en suite shower room is on the first floor, under characterful sloping ceilings.

It’s easily reached from Waterford via the Passage East/Ballyhack ferry over the estuary and O’Gormans say “it’s an ideal, low-maintenance retreat for anyone seeking a coastal get away, with numerous beaches, horse trekking and fishing available along the famous Hook Peninsula.”

VERDICT: a pearl indeed
