Our home

Our home sits on a half acre site situated less than 5 miles from the well sought after village of oranmore. It is a very spacious, clean and homely house. Downstairs we have a large open space including kitchen, dining room and an adjoining sunroom. There is also a spacious sitting/TV room. At the other end of the kitchen is the utility room and downstairs toilet. We also have a kids games room populated with an array of childrens games and toys including an Xbox, a wii and many many others. Upstairs there are 4 large bedrooms, 3 of which have ensuite toilets and showers. Also the main bathroom is upstairs and includes a jacuzzi. The sunroom downstairs leads out on to a spacious decking furnished with large table and chairs, an outside wicker couch and arm chairs, a BBQ and an outside stove. There is a long avenue into the house and there is a huge back garden with lots to do for children, including a tree house, slide and swing set and a 13 ft trampoline. We love to sit in the decking during the holiday season and read our books while the kids play in their playground outside. The patio sits to the side of the house where we often sit out to catch the evening sun. The large garden has a beech tree line all round, that is private with a view of the woods in the distance, there are flowers and shrubs in place and fruit trees to the rear. The beauty of where we live is that we enjoy the tranquility of the countryside in a very spacious dwelling but in a matter of minutes we can find ourselves in the hub of the vibrant and energetic Galway city. We are perfectly located for the Galway races and the Galway arts festival in the summer season. Most of all we love spending time in our home and we think you would too.

Situated in a picturesque area near the villages of Clarinbridge and Oranmore. The house is in the country but you can be in the middle of Galway city in 15-20 minutes.

Nearby, boat trips from Doolin to the Aran islands are also available. We are ideally located as a touring base for the wild and wonderful Connemara.
