About our home

Our house was built in the early '90s. It's comfortable and spacious and nestles in a rural setting that is just 10 mins drive from Galway city. Downstairs there's a large kitchen/dining area, a TV room, sitting room with piano which leads into a pretty conservatory. There is one bedroom downstairs with a double bed and next to it is a shower and toilet. Upstairs has three bedrooms, all with double beds (2 of the bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms). Scandinavian pine floors throughout.

supermarkets; an hour to the heart of Connemara, an hour to the Burren with its wonderful flora and fauna and an hour to beautiful Westport.
