Lehanagh South, Cashel, Co. Galway
A PARCEL OF 23.5 ACRES OF GRAZING LAND WITH GOOD ROAD FRONTAGES TOGETHER WITH SHARE IN COMMONAGE EXTENDING TO 12 ACRES
With long road frontage to the council road, the land comprises 23.5 acres owned outright within boundary fences and in a good location on a road leading down to Cashel Bay. 12 acres of commonage. A fine small holding with good opportunities for improvement and potential for one dwelling house.
The property is located in an area of outstanding scenic beauty close to Cashel Bay with views across moorland to the mountains of South Connemara. The property is just 1 mile from the renowned
Cashel House Hotel and 5 miles from Recess, with shops and a pub, while Clifden is just 16 miles further down the N59 to the west.
Cashel derives its name from a circular stone fort, "An Caiseal" the cashel, which is located on a slope of the mountain, north east of the village. This ring fort, moated with high banks is now surrounded by a graveyard which is still in use. The village to which it gives its name, is very popular for angling and shooting, and attracts numerous visitors with its stunning scenery.
Clifden is regarded as the Capital of Connemara, with banks and a large selection of shops, pubs, and an increasing number of cultural and 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.
The property is 40 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, while Knock Airport is about 11/2 hours and proposals have now been made for a new airport to serve Clifden on the outskirts of the town.
Golf is available at the Connemara Golf Club whilst there are six other courses within an hour's drive of the property.
