Situated close to Moycullen and ideally located for commuting into Galway City, the property is situated at the end of a quiet baureen road and then behind a gated entrance. This location offers the purchaser the best of both worlds being so close to a wide range of amenities only 2.5 miles from Moycullen and 10 miles from Galway in a lovely lakeside setting away from the noise and crowds of the city and on a no through road. The nearest National School is located less than 4 miles away at Tullokyne, with four other primary schools within easy reach. The local shop and pub is located at Tullokyne, with a wide and growing range of amenities available in Moycullen village. This has become a very popular location in recent years due to its convenient commuting distance to Galway City and excellent access to the Lough Corrib.

The property is 13 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 1.5 hours from the property with connections to Dublin, Cork, Belfast, Luton, Manchester, Edinburgh, Cardiff, Leeds Bradford, Bristol, Southampton, Newcastle and L’Orient.

Outside, the property is approached through a gated entrance with high stone walls providing total privacy and security. With a beautiful patio area to the south and west off the conservatory and reception room, this suntrap benefits from a covered gazebo of wood construction and open on two sides. This has power and lighting as does most of the garden, providing strategically positioned lighting which surrounds the property. To the North of the main house, there is a detached double garage, fire wood store and poly tunnel. The gardens are laid to lawn with large areas, being designed to create low maintenance colorful areas with a beautiful array of colour from mature shrubs and bushes.
