Where we want to go
Description of our house
Our home is situated just 5 miles from Galway City centre and yet just at the start of rural Ireland. Our home is a large modern 3800 sq. ft. detached home on a large private site. There is a high level stone wall to the front with security gate for privacy. Our home is comfortable clean and spacious. The rear deck is large and is bordered by a large rear garden surrounded by a high level 6ft timber fence with further views of rural Ireland. The local fauna and flowers and Galway Bay in the distance. We love having family and friends over for barbacues and spending warm and sunny evenings on the decking.
