About Josie

My name is Josie

I was born and lived in Killaderry Daingean until I was 18 years old. I then travelled and moved to the Uk. Having a large family I have sent a lot of time traveling back & forh to my home town. Having always wanted to renovate an old house this lovely old cottage came to the market 2 years ago. My husband & I with the help of lovely friends completed the renovations last year which we are extremely proud of.

Josie purchased this cottage in 2016

Why Josie chose Daingean

As a child going to school I would pass this lovely old cottage and wish I could live in it never thinking I would be luck enough to do just that.

What makes this cottage unique

My attraction to this unique cottage was how small it looked from the outside with its small doorways but inside it has amazing quirky features.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed in this beautifully restored gate house in Daingean co Offaly, it was just perfect with everything one could possibly want. It's very close to Edenderry & Tullamore, also the canal runs right beside it. Castlebarna Golf Club is a 5 minute drive away so a very good base for golfers. Definitely a 5 star residence.
