details

Semi-detached cottage on an island off the west coast

Matching its beautiful coastal views, this 100-year-old cottage has retained many traditional features while also being fully modernised. Its price has almost been halved from €295,000 to €150,000

Its spacious 123sqm of floor area accommodates five bedrooms, two bathrooms, a kitchen, a foyer with open staircase and overlooking gallery, and a large sitting room.

Its oil-fired central heating provides all year round comfort.

Although on Mweenish Island, the property is connected to the mainland by two bridges, and is just 2kms from Carna in the Connemara Gaeltacht. The 3sq km island has its own primary school and is Irish speaking.

The semi-detached cottage is set on an acre which includes a private back garden with three outhouses. It also has its own pier for boating and fishing enthusiasts and the owner enjoyed boating in his own traditional gleotoig sailing boat as well as four dinghies from the pier.

With its ambience of remoteness, the cottage is suitable as either a family or holiday home.
