Four on the markets in Galway City
A choice of four apartments in Galway offering location and character.
2 Barna House, Barna Demesne
€450k DNG Maxwell Heaslip & Leonard (091) 565261
Most apartments come with the latest 'mod cons' but with little character or history. No 2 Barna House is part of Galway's history. Built in the 1700s by the Lynch family, it stands on the site of the earlier 16th century castle of the O'Hallorans. The apartment is 1,650sq ft and was completely renovated in 2003. It feels luxurious with its high ceilings and tasteful décor. There are solid wooden floors, a fully fitted kitchen, two double bedrooms and two bathrooms. This is a gated development with extensive grounds.
Ce Na Mara, Dock Road
€255k Keane Mahony Smith (091) 563744
This apartment is right in the middle of the action. The city streets are just a short walk away. But when the buzz of the city gets too much, you can sit back and enjoy the views of the bay from your living room. The three-bed property is in good condition, as it's only had one owner and has recently been used as a holiday retreat. The own-entrance apartment opens up into the living and kitchen area. There is a balcony off the living room. There are two double bedrooms, one en suite, and one single. There is a communal courtyard.
34 Arasain Na Mara, Salthill
€135k O’Donnellan & Joyce Auctioneers (091) 564212
Over generations, Salthill has gone from a fishing village to a busy tourist resort. A tradition in these parts is to end your walk along the promenade by kicking the wall. Some say it's to bring good luck, others say it's to knock the sand off your shoes to lighten your return journey. No 34 Arasain Na Mara is a one-bed home that would make a good rental or a weekend bolthole. The 538 sq ft of accommodation is made up of an open-plan kitchen and living area, double bedroom and bathroom. There is a balcony off the living room.
7 The Elms, College Road
AMV €180k DNG Maxwell Heaslip & Leonard (091) 565261
You won't have to face flights of stairs every time you return home to Number 7 The Elms as the apartment comes with the added attraction of its own entrance. It is in good condition and has a floor area of 592 sq ft. The location, just off Eyre Square, is sure to generate a lot of interest. It is also very close to the main city bus station. Inside, there is an open-plan living/dining and kitchen area. There are two bedrooms and a bathroom. It also comes with residents' parking. No 7 is up for auction on April 29.
