In the foothills of Croagh Patrick
About 40,000 people climb Croagh Patrick every year - a mass pilgrimage that is arguably of more benefit to the pilgrims than to the mountain itself.
Those interested in conserving rather than despoiling 'nature's cathedral' might prefer simply to look at the mountain, instead of scrambling up the side of it in hiking boots or high heels, eroding the peak and leaving masses of litter.
The townland of Mullagh is about two kilometres due west of Croagh Patrick, so the residents there can amble around their neighbourhood and enjoy the splendour of the Reek from a safe distance.
This detached dormer bungalow is on a 0.9 acre site at Mullagh, and is about three kilometres from the coast at Kilsallagh and seven kilometres from the pretty town of Louisburgh.
From the outside it looks modest enough in size but is actually 1,991 sq ft within, and has some unusual and expensive features.
The ground floor has an open-plan kitchen, living room and dining room, with a double-sided stove and an oak stairs leading to a gallery overlooking the room. The kitchen is handmade, with granite countertops, and there's a separate utility room.
There are also three bedrooms on the ground floor, while the master bedroom with en-suite is upstairs.
The garden includes a deck, reached by means of double doors in the dining room, as well as a lawn and a wooden shed.
There's also a workshop on the grounds, measuring some 1,400 sq ft, with roller doors, so you can get on with a bit of boat-building and plan an excursion around the waters of Clew Bay.
Westport is about 18 kilometres away.
The property is for sale with an asking price of €255,000 and the agent is FM Auctioneers in Louisburgh (098) 66525.
