Holiday home
This fisherman's terraced cottage in the heart of Duncannon village, County Wexford, is over 100 years old and boasts a number of fascinating period features. The property itself is situated directly across the road from a golden stretch of sandy beach, making this a perfect place for anyone looking to spend their holiday on the beach. Accommodation in the property is comfortable and includes three bedrooms, a kitchen with dining area and a lounge with cosy open fire. The cottage is also well placed for local amenities such as the pubs and restaurants available in the village.

Situated in the south west of County Wexford, the picturesque fishing village of Duncannon is dominated by Duncannon Fort - positioned on a rocky outcrop jutting into the channel.

The property was opposite the beach, a really good location.. The house was clean and had everything that was needed.

House was clean and tidy.. Everything you would need is there. No Wi-Fi but we managed fine on mobile data. The pub on the corner was great for lunch and dinner. You need a car as no shops in the village

Seaview cottage is in an excellent location, just off the beach.. It was an ideal place to stay with young children. The house was safe and spacious and there was plenty to entertain us on wet days

The location was excellent.. Stunning sea views. Susan was extremely helpful. Loads of extras in the house. Enclosed back yard was a great bonus. While there don't miss the Duncannon Fort which has to be booked in advance and is just steps away.

We had a fantastic time in Sea view Cottage.. The weather was beautifull and Cottage overlooks beach where we spent lots of happy hours . The Cottage had everything we needed and many extras as well. We particularly liked outside private area at back great for breakfast or relaxing. Susan was very helpfull and easy to talk to. There is a lot to do and see in the area and everyone was very nice. I would highly recommend this cottage.

Sea View cottage is located across the road from and has super views of the lovely sandy, safe beach and the estuary out to sea.. The cottage is well fitted out very well and has a good range of equipment. The bedrooms are a good size and the beds are very comfortable. The sitting room was cosy and comfortable and the real fire added to the enjoyment. Duncannon village is quite small and has a mix of old and new buildings and the pubs have plenty of old photos to show what it was like in bygone times. The surrounding area is charming with the Hook lighthouse only a short drive from the cottage. Being mid-winter the weather was stormy on a few days and this provided spectacular scenes along the coast. While a car is necessary to make full use of the area, I was pleasantly surprised that there was a local bus service to Waterford City and adjoining villages a couple of times a day. Overall a thoroughly enjoyable stay in a very charming and well equipped property. A return visit will be in our future plans.

Excellent cottage in a brilliant location.. The cottage was in a superb location opposite the beach - didn't our dog just know it after his first walk! The facilities are very good and the welcome pack was greatly appreciated. I'd recommend Sea View Cottage and Duncannon without any hesitation. There are a couple of pubs in the village that serve great food as well - we didn't eat anywhere else. The cottage was the ideal place to retire to after eating too much! It is a great location for exploring Wexford and beyond.

The location of the house was perfect, there was loads to see in the area, and everything you could need was nearby. Most important was that the house genuinely felt like a home from home. It was spotless but at the same time it was homely and relaxing. We all slept really well in the comfy beds and awoke to stunning views. We'll definitely come back. It's the best pet friendly cottage we've stayed in so far!

My wife and I stayed here in June for a week and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. As a previous reviewer stated, Susan the owner has thought of everything for the guest here at Seaview. It is extremely spacious throughout, simply decorated and very homely. It's location is the best you can get, in the heart of the village, literally a 1-2 minutes walk to Duncannon's beautiful beach. It is again only a couple of minutes to Duncannon's two pubs who both serve really lovely food. So much so that we hardly cooked during our stay, it was that good! It is also a great base for touring the beautiful south Wexford coast.Susan the host has provided a little gem of a property for people to stay in and this will not be our last time staying at Seaview Cottage that's for sure.

The three bed property is in a fantastic location just across from the beach. The view from the property is stunning and there were great walks locally. Strand stores is the local shop which had everything we needed and Centra is a five minute drive. We hope to return in the summer.

An excellent location- with the beach/ bay just across the road. It was excellent for children and the dog.

My husband and myself enjoyed the cottage overlooking the beach. Duncannon a lovely quiet little town. Pubs serving good food just a few yards away, and post office and shop close by. The cottage was well equipped with everything you needed, even to sticking plasters if you should cut yourself. A great place for families with small children.

Just back from spending a week @this fisherman's cottage with my wife and 2 children under 5 ! Never before seen a house so well organised ? The lady that rents this house has literally everything thought of ! 1 spotlessly clean 2 right on the beach 3 nice suntrap of a back yard with barbecue 4 pub, shop, and chips hop all 1 minutes walk away If I could think of a drawback the only one is no bath but with 2 showers it's not a big problem To sum up ! We had a great holiday

We loved the location, the friendly welcoming people and the fantastic views first thing in the morning when pulling back the curtains. The beach was literally on the doorstep and we were in an ideal place to tour the south east of Ireland.

A beautifully organised and spotless house. Lovely welcome of fresh daffodils, scones and jam on the kitchen table. Every need catered for. Never stayed in such a thoughtfully equipped holiday home. Beds extremely comfortable and heating thoughtfully timed to come on just when needed. Situated right beside the beach and friendly pub. Couldn't fault it.

Lovely house in a beautiful little village. Could not wish for more. Great base for touring Wexford. Would go again earlier in the season.

The actual location of the cottage was superb. Walking into a roaring open fire was marvellous.

Great little find. Lovely cottage. Well equipt. Fabulous welcome. Could not praise enough. Duncannon is a great spot. Two lovely pubs, friendly locals and handy shop. Not far from Waterford via car ferry

The cottage was exactly as described in the advert and could not be in a more perfect location. It is just across the road (very quiet) from a marvellous beach, with a pub and shop within a minute's walk. There is also a working harbour and a fort very close by and a new play area. The owner met us at the property and had lit the fire which was lovely. The cottage is very well equipped and the only negative aspect is that it does not have a bath (there are two bathrooms with showers), a fact we knew when we booked and everything else was exactly as we required. One of the nicest things was that there was not a long list of 'dos and donts'! The whole area is lovely with plenty to see and do, even out ot season. We also located nearly every playground in South East Ireland and our two girls of 4 and 7 were never bored. It sounds a cliche but everybody that we had any dealings with was friendly and helpful. We would highly recommend Sea View Cottage to anyone and wish we had found it sooner!

Location. Well-equipped cottage. Very handy for good meals out. Welcome pack. It really would be the perfect holiday cottage for families with children.
Mrs Delaney

Best equipped cottage we have ever stayed in. Very thoughtfully fitted out.
March 2012
This was our final stop on our round-the-world trip and was the perfect choice. 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, w/d, woodstove, full kitchen, back patio, ample parking, t/v with dvd's and a few board games. 40ft. from the beach. Very quiet pub around the corner. Convenience store on other corner. Duncannon is very small and low key. No noise, only the beach, a few locals and some morning fog. This was also a good base to tour the southern countryside. 2 hours to blarney, 1.5 to wicklow mountains, and 45 min to waterford. Great price to boot. Would definitely stay again.

The beach across the road was safe and sandy for children. The village was very friendly and there is good food in the nearby pub.
Mr Chapman
September 2010
Wonderful location - huge, clean, sandy beach on the doorstep. Clean, modern cafe with great home-baking a 5 sec walk away. Two friendly pubs selling hot food all day 30 seconds walk. Duncannon is a great, intimate and peaceful spot. We didn't want to leave.
