High Trees, Errisbeg, Roundstone, Galway H91 K7X9, Galway

For Sale by private treaty


SITUATION AND AMENITIES: The property is on the southern slopes of Errisbeg mountain which overlooks Roundstone Village. Errisbeg (Urrisbeg) was the original settlement on the side of the hill of that name and itself predates Roundstone..

The property is close to Gurteen Bay and Dog's Bay (which was originally known as Port na Feadóige, the bay of the plover), two of the loveliest and best well known Connemara beaches which attract a large number of visitors and are justly famous for their exceptional beauty and long white sandy beaches. These beaches are approx. 10 mins walk from the property.

Roundstone derives its name from the anglicised corruption of Cloch Na Rón, the rock of the seals. The bay was used by smugglers into the 18th Century while the village itself dating back to the 1820's was built by Alexander Nimmo.

Roundstone is an exceedingly charming village tucked away on the rugged Connemara coastline. The village is both friendly and inviting with a wide range of amenities including shops, post office, school, hotels, and excellent restaurants most of which overlook the wide harbour and have stunning views over the Connemara landscape.

Clifden, the nearest town and only 9 miles away, is regarded as the Capital of Connemara, with banks and a large selection of shops, pubs, and other 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. Golf is available at the Connemara Golf Club whilst there are six other courses within an hour's drive of the property.

The property is 48 miles from the regional capital of the West, Galway City, with its mainline road, rail and extensive and substantial cultural, commercial and retail facilities. Shannon Airport is some 21/2 hours from the property and Knock Airport is 2 hours away.

THE HOUSE: The property is south facing and extends to circa 235 square meters (2,528 square feet). Construction is a combination of stone and block construction under a pitched and flat roof configuration. The original property would have dated back to the early 1900's and extended in more recent years. The accommodation is spacious and well laid out and could easily be sub divided if desired. The beauty of the property is the privacy and range of mature trees surrounding and on the site. There is a charming driveway leading from the main road to the front of the property and outbuildings.
