Ballina is at the mouth of the River Moy, and there are views of the river from this World War Two-era detached property at Sligo Road in the town. It's 2,508 sq ft in size with five bedrooms, all on the first floor and four en-suite. On the ground floor there's a drawing room and a dining room on either side of the entrance hall, a kitchen with a solid-fuel stove and a TV room with a fireplace. The garden is possibly the best feature of the property, with a lawn and mature trees and the grounds have a workshop and chalets.

Ballyhaunis, in the heart of east Mayo, is more accessible than it sounds, as it's on the Dublin-Westport railway line and 20 kilometres from Knock airport. Two kilometres outside the town is this 1980s bungalow that was extended and modernised in 2001. It's on 1.5 acres with patios, lawns and a tennis court. Inside, the 3,313 sq ft of space includes two ground-floor bedrooms and three upstairs, including the en-suite master. It also has a living room, formal sitting room, study and conservatory, and kitchen.
Curra Davitt, Louisburgh
€249k Sherry FitzGerald Crowley (098) 29009
When the owners of Calla House in Westport were extending the place back in 2012, they took time over the energy efficiency, hiking the BER up to a creditable B3. The extension created a floor area of 2,160 sq ft. Three of the five bedrooms are on the ground floor (one en-suite), and the en-suite master is on the first floor. The second upstairs bedroom needs flooring and finishing. Downstairs there's a living room with a solid-fuel stove and French doors to the garden, a newly fitted, quite chic kitchen, and a study.
