Maggie Molloy brought this week’s house hunting couple on Cheap Irish Homes (RTÉ1) to Ballydaly to see a cottage that’s been unused for a few years. Of the houses they were shown, they said it was by far their favourite, for the space provided, and also probably for the price also. You can still see this week’s episode on the RTÉ Player.

Are you all ready for tonight? It’s Aidan, Fiona & baby Leela’s turn to be dragged around the countryside this week! Their search was based around Co. Cork so if that’s where you’re househunting, this episode could be right up your alley! I’m going to try squeeze in another aftershow over on YouTube tonight at 9pm (if I can grab a minute this afternoon) so once the show is over head to “cheapirishhouses” on YouTube to catch up. See you all then! #reno #ireland_gram #irelandinspires #irishlandscape #irelandaily #ireland #thisisireland #ireland_gram #visitireland #irishcottage #expat #irishproperty #geneology #irishrealty #irishrealestate #cheapirishhouses #under100k #cottage #cottagelife #irishcentral #irishamerican #retiretoireland
