Inside the cabin's accommodation comprises of a kitchen/living area, bedroom and bathroom/shower en suite, while there’s a courtyard to the front and drive-in access via the adjoining property.

"It’s currently cheaper to buy than to rent. This offers an affordable way to move out of renting, have a minimal monthly mortgage repayment and save into the future,"selling agent Charlie McDermott told the Irish Times.

It is understood that the one-bed property is being sold by the owners of the semi-detached house and corner garden site on which the cabin stands.

The agents says no planning permission was required to erect the cabin, which is connected to the mains sewage system. Legally, McDermott says, the vendors are selling a garden site that happens to have a log cabin on it. Once it is sold the title folio on the property will be legally divided.
