The property constructed approximately 70 years ago of stone construction with a rendered exterior under a fibre slate roof, this 4 bedroom detached property has a combination of single and double glazed windows and doors throughout and oil fired central heating. The property has been well maintained by the present owners and is now for sale with floor coverings, curtains and light fittings included and the other contents may be available by separate negotiation.

The property is situated just outside Clifden, set back from the main N59. Clifden, the nearest town and only 3 miles away, is regarded as the Capital of Connemara, with banks and a large selection of shops, pubs, and other leisure facilities. Clifden is noted for its many fine seafood restaurants, the famous Connemara Pony Show which takes place there each August in the showground close to the property, and the Clifden Arts Festival in September, all of which attract many Irish and foreign visitors. The area is well provided for a wide range of sporting and leisure facilities, with fishing, boating and water sports most popular using the many beaches and bays which comprise this convoluted coastline. Golf is available at the Connemara Golf Club whilst there are six other courses within an hour’s drive of the property.

The property is 54 miles from the regional capital of the West, Galway City, with its mainline road, rail and air connections and extensive and substantial cultural, commercial and retail facilities. Shannon Airport is some 21/2 hours from the property. Galway Airport is just 70 minutes away with connections to Dublin, Cork, Belfast, Luton, Manchester, Edinburgh, Cardiff, Leeds Bradford, Bristol, Southampton, Newcastle and L’Orient. Proposals have now been made for a new airport to serve Clifden, on the Cleggan road, which is just four miles from the property.
