Four on the market... with a river view
Four properties available to buy which offer river views.
Rivercourt House, Camlin
€625k Sherry FitzGerald Radford, (051) 426 161
Just outside New Ross, the River Barrow makes an abrupt right turn before continuing south on its journey to the sea. Rivercourt House stands at that point, keeping an eye on what's going in neighbouring Kilkenny, across the water. It's a detached, 3,700 sq ft, B3-rated dormer bungalow on 1.25 acres of high ground sloping down to the road and the river. It has five bedrooms, two en suite, and three reception rooms - a sitting room, lounge, and first-floor games room. There's also a sunroom with river views, opening onto a deck.
8 Gleanntán Na hAbhann, Killora
€365k Allman Reynolds, (091) 513100
Almost no expense was spared to make this 2,700 sq ft Co Galway home energy-efficient. It has geothermal heating, a wood-burning range in the kitchen, and a rainwater harvesting system. It all adds up to a BER of B1. The ground floor has a living room with a wood-burning stove, the kitchen, and a study. Upstairs are four bedrooms, including the master suite with a sauna and steam shower. Landscaped gardens flow down to the edge of the Dunkellin River, and it's less than 10 minutes' walk from Craughwell village.

5 Boyne View, Slane, Co Meath
€250k Sullivan Property Consultants, (041) 983 6453
Boyne View is an 18th-century terrace of six limestone houses, built to accommodate workers at the nearby mill. From the terrace, across the road from the entrance to Slane Castle, there are good views of the River Boyne. Number 5 has been renovated, but still has period charm including original fireplaces. It has two first floor bedrooms and a bathroom, while on the ground floor are a sitting room, kitchen, living room and guest toilet. The front door is on the street, but there's a pretty walled courtyard out the back.
