THIS SPACIOUS HOME WOULD LEND ITSELF TO BED & BREAKFAST OPPORTUNITIES OR ACCOMMODATING SUMMER STUDENTS WHO WISH TO RESIDE IN THE GAELTACHT.

The property is set in a west facing position on one of the loveliest and most unspoilt coastlines in the West of Ireland.

The property is only a few hundred yards from the nearest pub and shop in Kilkieran and Carna is just four miles distant. The property is close to Ardmore beach with its wide expanses of soft level sand surrounded by rock pools leading to Finish Island. 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. A three day festival, named after the saint, Feile Mhic Dara, is held in Carna each July. This features curragh and hooker racing, sea angling competitions, art and craft exhibitions.

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. The property has had double glazed windows fitted throughout but is in need of some cosmetic renovation.

The property is 40 miles from the regional capital of the West, Galway City, with its mainline road, rail and extensive and substantial cultural, commercial and retail facilities.
