County Galway, Ireland

3 bedroom Ocean view House near Clifden in The Connemara, County Galway, Ireland.
This is a gorgeous modern house located just off the Sky Road out of Clifden on the tip of the Coolacloy Peninsula.  It’s a beautiful stone house on top of a hill looking out to sea over Kingstown Bay over coral beaches to Crow Island. To the east the Twelve Bens Mountain Range affords a picturesque backdrop.

The sitting/dining room has a pine cathedral ceiling, a traditional oil stove, comfortable leather sofas and an easy chair, antiques, an  entertainment centre with TV, video, DVD player and CD, wood floors.  The dining area has an extendable oak dining table to seat 6-10.  The walls are decorated with limited edition prints by the artist-owner.  Most are Connemara scenes and are for sale.  Doors open on to one of  two patio areas. This one, facing west to the sea, has outdoor furniture and a barbecue.
The compact kitchen is off the sitting room.  It is a state-of-the-art Italian design and has a large refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher, microwave, 6-burner gas cook top and an electric oven.  The washer and dryer are located in a little building adjacent to the house.

From the sitting room, an open staircase leads up to a warm, bright sun room that has two futons, TV and video.  A door opens onto a south-facing balcony that has a view of the sea and mountains.

There are three bedrooms on the ground floor.  One has a king bed, antique pine furniture, tapestry fabrics in gold and maroon, pine floors, excellent storage, TV, video.  Fabrics are a serene blue.  Views are of the sea.  The en suite tiled bathroom has a shower.

The second bedroom also has a king bed, antique pine furniture, pine floors and beautiful sea views.  The third has twin beds, ample storage, antique pine furniture, pine floors, and it, too, has sea views.  These bedrooms share a hallway bathroom that has a jacuzzi tub.

The grounds are beautiful.  The house is surrounded by sea-view gardens, one of which, on the southeast side of the house, is sheltered  - great for windier days.  Outside, near the main patio area, is an enclosed garden with swings, a sandbox and children’s climbing frame.

The Connemara is a wild and hauntingly beautiful area of Ireland.  There are breathtaking drives along the N59 up to Westport and down to Galway City.  Clifden, 5 miles from the property, is a terrific village, very happening.  It has shops, pubs and several superb restaurants.  A lovely coral beach is only 250 yards from the house, and a broad, sandy beach is only 1½ miles. The area offers sailing, horse riding, deep sea fishing and trips to the local Islands.  The surrounding mountains provide endless opportunities for hill walking and fishing in mountain lakes. 

Kylemore Abbey is near the house.  There are many wonderful villages nearby including Oughterard and Westport.  Golf is everywhere!  Ballyconneely, an 18-hole golf course is 10 miles and nearby Ballinahinch Castle has woodland walks, elegant afternoon teas and shooting and game angling in season.

A baby’s cot, high chair, playpen, stair gate and buggy are available on request.

The owner of this house is an accomplished artist, her work can be seen at The Whitethorne Gallery in Clifden Town.
