SITUATION AND AMENITIES: The property is a beautifully presented 4 bedroom family home ideal for either an investor or owner occupier. Oughterard is a flourishing village on the shores of Lough Corrib, with a good range of shops, pubs, hotels and schools. The village caters well for the growing local population, as well as the large numbers of visitors who come to take advantage of the walking, boating, and beautiful scenery for which this village is justly famous. Golf is available at the 18 hole Oughterard golf course, set in natural parkland and there are six other golf courses within an hour's drive. The village is within easy commuting distance of Galway being only 30 minutes drive from Galway City centre. You can walk to the village centre either over the bridge near the church, or along a tranquil riverside walk which brings you to the boat club. This scenic walk also continues, leading you to Oughterard pier and beautiful views over Lough Corrib via the Pier Road. Just a few kilometres North up a quiet country road you will find the New Village forest with its walks and football pitches, and you will also have made your first steps along the famous Western Way.
