A fine property, built to a very high standard, on just under a ˝ acre site within 300 meters of the centre of Cornamona Village. The property extends to approximately 1,700 sq. ft in total, comprising entrance hall, living room with superb mountain views, kitchen, utility, 4 bedrooms (2 ensuite), an additional bathroom and a wheelchair friendly ground floor shower room. This a very attractive property in a truly scenic location and would be perfect as either a family home or a no maintenance holiday home within easy reach of both Lough Corrib and Lough Mask. It could also be used as a B & B business.

The property is set in a delightful position with excellent views of the Maumturk Mountains and Joyces Country, yet within a short walk to Cornamona village which is just 300 metres away.

Cornamona (Corr na Mona, the round hill of the bog), is a popular Gaeltacht and angling resort, noted for its trout and salmon fishing. The village sits on the banks of the Dooghta or Cornamona River at the base of Benlevy, which rises to a height of 1370 feet. The village has a pub, post office, primary school, secondary school, church and a shop while the bigger village of Clonbur with a wide range of pubs, restaurants, shops and other community facilities is 6 miles away. The thriving town of Ballinrobe with all its many shops, pubs, banks and hotels, together with its charming and popular racecourse, is 16 miles away. Picturesque, Cong, where the classic film The Quiet Man with John Wayne and Maureen O’Hara was filmed, is also a short drive away.

Cornamona is a fisherman’s paradise, situated on the shores of Lough Corrib, which is the second largest freshwater lake in Ireland being 35 miles long from Galway to Maam and varying in breadth from one quarter of a mile to 8 miles. It also varies in depth from only 6 or 7 feet to over 150 feet, covering 44,000 acres between the counties of Galway and Mayo and believed to contain in the region of 145 islands. The property is also just 5 miles from the internationally renowned wild brown trout fishery, Lough Mask. The property would let well during the fishing season and, if fully let, would produce an income of around €10,000 for the season.

This delightfully friendly area caters well for the large numbers of visitors who come to take advantage of the fishing, walking, boating and other leisure activities for which this area is justly famous.

Golf is available at the recently upgraded 18 hole Oughterard golf course, set in natural parkland, and at Ballinrobe while there are four other golf courses within an hour's drive.
