Lilac Tree Cottage is a pretty, traditional Irish cottage dating back to 1860 with a modern twist. It is located on a street of stone cottages on the edge of the small historic village of Greyabbey with its Cistercian abbey dating back to 1160. The abbey is set in beautiful parkland and is just across the way from the cottage, the perfect spot for walks and picnics. Greyabbey has a number of historic buildings and a selection of antique and vintage shops, restaurants and coffee shops. The cottage has been recently renovated and is furnished with a mixture of vintage and contemporary pieces yet maintains its charm with all modern home comforts.
