Dolly's Cottage is a 200 year old, traditional, thatched cottage, the only one of its kind in the area which is open to the public during the summer months. It is a stone built cottage with two rooms and a loft with original walls, roof, roof beams, fireplace and pouch bed. When you step through the little red door it's like stepping  into the past.  The cottage is named after Dolly Higgins, the last person to live here. She was a genial soul, well loved by young and old in the area. When Dolly died in 1970, the cottage was purchased by the Strandhill guild of the Irish Countrywomens Association, with a view to preserving it for future generations.
