The schoolhouse at Glanurla, Ballycastle in Co Mayo was built in 1914 looking out on the Atlantic. Renovated into a comfortable home, it is now on the market with a guide price of €130,000.

Located five minutes from Ballycastle, the house is close to a number of beaches and Belmullet golf course.

Nearby are the Céide Fields, a Neolithic farming system discovered by local schoolteacher Patrick Caulfield in the 1940s and excavated four decades later by his son and archaeologist ­Professor Seamus Caulfield. A visitor centre on the site gives an overview of how our farming ancestors eked out a living on these shores more than five millennia ago.

The accommodation includes a large open-plan space on the ground floor encompassing a kitchen area, dining area and a living room with an open staircase to a second floor.

There is also a conservatory, a guest WC and a front porch.

Upstairs is a single ensuite bedroom with gable-end windows.

Outside, the old turf shed is converted to a chalet with two bedrooms and a shower room. Karl Fox of Fox and Gallagher describes this as a spectacular property in a spectacular setting.
