This fascinating holiday home in Lahinch, County Clare, Ireland dates back 120 years.
Its claim to fame, as its name reveals, is that it edges out surrounding townhouses by jutting out a few angled feet making it officially Ireland’s closest house to the sea.
Just mere steps from the ocean at high tide makes this vacation rental a desirable place for family reunions where you can relish the views and the home’s historical features.
This 2-story terraced house has a reverse design with the main living area on the upper floor to showcase the ocean views from a higher vantage point.
The ground floor houses 2 bedrooms and a bathroom.
The open plan kitchen/living/dining area – the Great Room – has views over Lahinch Beach, plus an open loft overlooking the living area with 2 single beds.
Although updated, the home retains oodles of old-world charm with exposed stone walls and thick, rustic timbers.
Even the lower-level bedrooms maximize the near-sea mystique.
Imagine being lulled to sleep by the rhythmic waves of the mighty north Atlantic!
Back on the upper “main” level, nautical elements are on full display.
Another set of stairs leads up to the loft, where there are 2 single beds.
Great fun and treasured memories for the whole family await at The Cross Seas House – Ireland’s closest house to the sea!
What a wonderful find!
