Maum, Errislanan, Clifden, Co. Galway
Ref: R0470


Built in approximately 1950, this detached 4 bedroom bungalow has beautiful coastal views over Mannin Bay and substantial frontage to the sea enabling a mooring if desired. With circa 15 Acres of land available this property will appeal to many. The house itself requires some modernisation but offers a great opportunity to create a fabulous family home.

The property is located on a quiet bye road, situated between Clifden and Ballyconneely, with minimal passing traffic. The local area has numerous beautiful beaches, with Coral Strand being one of the most popular, but the peninsula is ringed with beaches on all sides, providing an excellent choice for bathing, boating and angling. Ballyconneely village is nearby with a range of shops, local pub, church and the popular 18 hole golf links at Aillebrack. Clifden is regarded as the Capital of Connemara, with banks and a large selection of shops, pubs, and other leisure facilities. Clifden is noted for many fine seafood restaurants, the Connemara Pony Show, and the Clifden Arts Festival in September, all of which attract many Irish and foreign visitors. 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.

The property was constructed in the 1950’s of block construction under a concrete tile roof. To the rear there is a flat roof extension, housing the kitchen and bathroom. The property has double glazed windows and doors throughout and a solid fuelled range in the living room. Outside the property there are grazing lands almost surrounding the property and a lovely stretch across the road with excellent sea coastal frontage. The accommodation comprises entrance hall, kitchen, living room, 4 bedrooms and separate bathroom.
