Four on the market: along the Wild Atlantic Way
A choice of four different properties situated along the Wild Atlantic Way.
Shanavagh, Ballydehob, Co Cork
€245k Sherry FitzGerald O’Neill Clonakilty, (023) 883 3995
About 400 metres south of this Tudor-style house at Lisdeen is what's left of the old West Clare Railway, scourge of Percy French. The property is about three kilometres from Kilkee and five from Moyasta, where you can go for a short trip on one of the old steam trains from those days. Although it's on the main road (the Wild Atlantic Way), the house enjoys a nice bit of seclusion thanks to its well cared-for garden where there are lots of mature trees, lawns, a deck and patio. Inside, it's 3,875 sq ft with six first-floor bedrooms. The ground floor has three reception rooms, a kitchen, study and integral garage.
Lisdeen, Kilkee, Co Clare
€245k Sherry FitzGerald O'Neill Clonakilty, (023) 883 3995
Known as The Old Crossing, this property stands at a former level crossing on the now-vanished Schull & Skibbereen light railway. It's located about half a kilometre from the centre of Ballydehob and five minutes' walk from the coast. Measuring 1,844 sq ft on three floors, it has a two-roomed attic, and three bedrooms below that on the first floor, two of them with en suites. There's a fourth bedroom at ground level. The ground floor also has a living room with solid fuel stove, an eat-in kitchen and a sunroom to the front, facing due south. The house is set on a well-tended pretty tiered garden bordered by the old railway wall.
Coral Lodge, Murrisk, Co Mayo
€630k Sherry FitzGerald Crowley, (098) 29009
Murrisk is at the foot of Croagh Patrick, about 10 kilometres from the town of Westport. Coral Lodge, at Deerpark West, is a kilometre or so from the village and has an elevated site overlooking the sea at the front and the mountain at the back. It's 3,104 sq ft with two floors, and there's an attic level as well with two rooms in it. The overall space includes six bedrooms, four of them en suite, along with a study and store room on the top floor. The ground floor has two reception rooms with good views, and a kitchen with a separate utility. The grounds also include a lofted double garage.
Belleek, Clifden, Co Galway
€375k Sherry FitzGerald Mangan, (095) 21888
This detached residence in Clifden goes by the name of 'The Pink House' so you may not want to change its colour unless you want to confuse every postman and courier in Connemara. It's on the Lower Sky Road, a few hundred metres from Clifden Bay which it overlooks to the south, and about five kilometres from Clifden itself. Formerly a guesthouse, it has 10 bedrooms, six of them on the ground floor and four upstairs. There's also a kitchen and two reception rooms - a living room and a dining room, both with open fireplaces.
