“I love it all,” says the owner. “It’s all so unique, and ev­ery room has some­thing that’s 200 years old.” You can see this in charm­ing de­tails, such as the tower fea­ture to the back of the house, oval windows and cast-iron fire­places. An ex­cep­tion­ally sym­pa­thetic ex­ten­sion to the rear gives you a very spa­cious kitchen, with range, is­land unit, sit­ting and break­fast ar­eas. There’s also a din­ingroom and TV room sep­a­rate to this. Pas­sage is a su­per spot. It’s a five-minute walk to the Pas­sage Ferry to pretty Cobh with all its ameni­ties and lively arts cen­tre. There’s so much to float your boat.
