Four on the market: in Galway city
A selection of four properties available to buy in the City of the Tribes
2 Whitethorn Close, Renmore
€400k O'Donnellan & Joyce (091) 564 212
The housing estates in this part of Renmore are all named after trees, but by rights there should be a maritime theme, since many have sea views. That includes 2 Whitethorn Close, an end-of-terrace house with long views of Galway Bay from the back. It's been refurbished and extended to 1,803 sq ft with five bedrooms. Four are on the first floor, including the en-suite master, and there's an en-suite guest room downstairs. The ground floor also has a living room and a kitchen and family room with doors to the garden.
14 Middle Street
€275k Sherry FitzGerald Galway (091) 569123
You almost couldn't be closer to the cultural hub of the city than at 14 Middle Street, down the road from An Taibhdhearc and close to restaurants and pubs. It is a tiny, two-up two-down terraced house of 578 sq ft. The front door opens into a small porch and then an open-plan kitchen, dining and living room. The kitchen is in an extension, with French doors to the courtyard. The first floor has two bedrooms and a bathroom. Planning permission was granted to convert the ground floor into a hair salon.
Dunmore Hse, 3 Taylor’s Hill Rd
€575k O’Donnellan & Joyce (091) 564 212
Dunmore House is only 15 minutes' from NUIG, and it's an eight-bedroom house with two one-bedroom flats on its grounds, so there's potential to make it earn its keep. The place needs redecorating but there's 2,066 sq ft to work with, on two storeys plus an attic level. The ground floor has a lounge, dining room, kitchen and utility. The first floor has five bedrooms plus a bathroom and separate toilet, and there are three more bedrooms and another bathroom above. The flats are in a detached building in the rear yard.
26 Carragh Hill, K’nacarra Road
€295k O’Donnellan & Joyce (091) 564 212
It's about a 15-minute walk from 26 Carragh Hill down to the diving boards in Blackrock, where if you don't fancy a plunge into the Atlantic yourself, you can always watch other daredevils doing it. Carragh Hill is part of a warren of cul-de-sacs of Knocknacarra Road, and Number 26 is almost at the very end. It's a two-storey detached house needing modernisation and it has four first-floor bedrooms (one en-suite). The ground floor has a living room with a brick fireplace, a dining room and a family room.
