A blog dedicated to the preservation, restoration and celebration of Irish Cottages and culture.
I write about and photograph all types of Irish Cottages from the bare bones in the fields, to fully restored cottages for rent to the cute city cottages. All have a special place in Irish history and architecture and hopefully by highlighting them, less will be lost to high density / low cost / high profit developments.
I am currently working on a project documenting the cottages of Dublin City. Very few streets of cottages remain in many part of the city, they are slowly being relegated to a distant memory in the city. I hope to interview older inhabitants of the cottages to document their memories and experiences before they are lost to time.
I believe their existence is utterly essential to the development of the city by providing diversity of accomodation and retaining the culture and charm of Dublin.
