These four homes on the market come with stunning sea views
A choice of four properties on the market which boast sea views.
Sky Road, Clifden, Co Galway
€795k Sherry FitzGerald Mangan (095) 21888
All of the living rooms in this stone-fronted cottage at Sky Road in Clifden have sea views. In fact, it's so well situated high above the water that it seems almost surrounded by the Atlantic. There are five bedrooms, three en-suite and one with a walk-in wardrobe. The living room has a marble fireplace and there's also a sitting room, a sunroom and a kitchen and dining room, all with sea views. It's three-and-a-half kilometres out on the Sky Road from Clifden, and just over 80 kilometres from Galway city.
Sea Breeze, Co Wexford
€445k Sherry FitzGerald Radford (051) 426161
The sea breeze is inescapable in the grounds of this aptly-named dormer bungalow on two acres, as it's in Fethard-on-Sea on the Hook Peninsula. As with all narrow peninsulas, there are few trees to be found here, but that does mean there's nothing to interrupt the view, which can be enjoyed from all the living rooms and the upstairs bedrooms. The ground floor has a living room, an oak-fitted kitchen with a breakfast bar, and a sunroom. There are three bedrooms downstairs and another three upstairs along with a study.
Askillaun, Louisburgh, Co Mayo
€420k FM Auctioneers (098) 66525
You can see the whole of Clew Bay from this detached house in the townland of Askillaun, about four kilometres west of Louisburgh. To get the best of the views, there's a huge, floor-to-ceiling window in the main living room, which is an open-plan sitting room, dining room and kitchen, with a gallery landing above and a stone-built double-sided fireplace. There are four bedrooms (two en-suite on the ground floor and two more upstairs), and there's also a granny flat with a lounge, kitchen and two bedrooms.
Lowertown, Schull, Co Cork
€395k Sherry FitzGerald O’Neill (028) 21404
The Croagh River estuary in west Cork is a favourite spot among birdwatchers. With a pair of binoculars, you could even observe the wildlife of the estuary from the living room of this architect-designed house in the nearby townland of Lowertown. It's on an acre of land in an elevated spot. The ground floor has a living room with a solid-fuel stove, a kitchen, dining room and two bedrooms (one en-suite). The other two bedrooms are on the first floor; both have ensuites and the master bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe.
