The Shell Cottage, Cullenstown


The Shell Cottage is a unique 19th century thatched cottage at Cullenstown Strand on Wexford’s south coast.

The Shell Cottage is a quirky and unsual house that will make a memorable and unique shooting location for films. The exterior is decorated with over 50,000 sea shells that are arranged in a variety of beautiful motifs and nautical images. The cottage’s thatched roof further adds to its unique charm.

The nautically themed house is also ideally set across from Cullenstown Strand and has a view of the ocean from its front door. With no neighbouring buildings, the location stands out in its environment. All this together means that the Shell Cottage is perfect as a quirky house location or as a memorable backdrop for scenes set by the sea.

Three buildings are decorated. The main cottage, a small shed and a larger shed. A decorated outer wall encloses the three buildings and creates an inner yard. Also decorated with shells are raised flower beds and a garden bench.
