Lisloughery, Cong, Co Mayo 

€300k  Sherry FitzGerald Mannion (093) 26622

This mid-19th century house is in the most exceptional spot, right on the shore of Lough Corrib. And it’s at the end of a road to nowhere, so the occupants are unlikely to be troubled bygaping Americans who’ve strayed from nearby Ashford Castle tourists. The exterior is cut stone with a pleasing abundance of little roofs and gables.The 1,490 sq ft interior has period features too, but it needs refurbishment. The ground floor has a sitting room with a bay window overlooking the lake, a study, a kitchen and utility and one bedroom. There are three more bedrooms upstairs with fireplaces. There are some outbuildings on the grounds, and private lake access.

The Lodge, Co Galway

 €362,500  Spencer Auctioneers (091) 552 999

The cold breezes from Lough Corrib shouldn't present a problem for the occupant of this 3,200 sq ft dormer by the lakeshore in Ardnasillagh, Oughterard, as it has a B3 energy rating. It's been refurbished and upgraded, but needs some finishing off by way of flooring, skirting, architraves etc. It has four bedrooms (one en-suite), an open-plan living room, dining room and kitchen, and a separate sitting room. The grounds amount to 1.4 acres with lawned gardens sheltered by mature trees, and there's a garage and greenhouse.

‘Ponderosa’, Co Galway

 €219,500  DNG Martin O’Connor (091) 866 708

The Ponderosa of TV's Bonanza fame was a 600,000 acre ranch on the shores of Lake Tahoe, America's sixth-biggest lake. You won't get that with this 'Ponderosa', in Callownamuck, close to the shores of Lough Corrib, the biggest lake in the Republic. It does have a vast equestrian facility adjoining, which you can buy separately. The house was built in 2004 and is 2,150 sq ft, with four bedrooms, one en-suite. By way of living rooms, there's a sitting room, conservatory and kitchen/diner.

Derrymoyle House, Co Galway

 €460k  Sherry FitzGerald Galway (091) 569 123

If you head north from Oughterard and make your way around the western shore of Lough Corrib, you'll come to Derrymoyle House - a large detached house on an acre with its own lake access. There's no shortage of space indoors either, with 4,069 sq ft, though that includes a vast basement for storage. At hall level are four bedrooms, three of them en-suite, along with a huge, open-plan kitchen and living room. The grounds feature landscaped gardens and there's also an 800 sq ft 'clock house'.
