"They don't come up that often, which is why it's generating so much interest," Roisin O'Grady, an assistant at auctioneers Hassett, the company that put the property on the market, told Reuters.
The cottage faces the beach, however, it also backs up to the Dublin-Rosslare railroad tracks. It is divided into two rooms and has an outside chemical toilet.
