Meall an Iolra, Revagh Rd, Salthill
€870k Sherry FitzGerald Galway, (091) 569 123
Leafy Revagh Road runs parallel to the coast, behind Leisureland, just five minutes' walk from the prom. Number 5, called Meall an Iolra, was built around 1960 and the current owners have had it since then, so it's in good order. On the ground floor are three reception rooms and a kitchen, and there are four bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs. Total floor space is 1,421 sq ft. The site is 0.3 of an acre with gardens front and back with lawns, hedging and mature trees. There's also a side annexe and a garage.

Gleann Beag is in an out-of-the-way spot about three-and-half kilometres from the village of Oughterard. It's on an elevated site of just under 0.6 of an acre, with pleasant views over the boggy hills of Connemara. On the ground floor, there's a living room with a beamed ceiling and a solid-fuel stove, a kitchen and dining room with a range cooker, two en-suite bedrooms and a bathroom. Upstairs, at loft level, there are two more rooms, two bathrooms and a kitchen, and there's a storage shed on the grounds.

€250k O’Donnellan & Joyce, (091) 564 212

Already refurbished, it has 1,100 sq ft of accommodation, with a living room and a kitchen on the ground floor, and two bedrooms (one en-suite) on the first floor, plus a bathroom.
