Maigh Cuilinn, or Moycullen as it's known in English, was once a small Gaeltacht village near Lough Corrib. But because of its proximity to Galway City, about 10km away, it has evolved into a satellite town, with a sizeable number of residents using it as a base to work and study in the city itself.
About 500m from the centre of Moycullen, Galway-based BRTW Developments is building Doire Feá, a scheme of 50 three, four, and five-bed homes that it launched a year ago.
There are currently 18 three and four-bed homes left for sale from the last release in September, with prices starting at €295,000 for a three-bed terraced house. Sizes range from 1,516 sq ft to 1,675 sq ft.
The block-built homes are finished in a combination of render and stone cladding, with the paved front driveways bounded by flowerbeds and cut limestone walls. Each black hardwood front door has glazed panels and there are high-performance uPVC double-glazed windows throughout. To the rear, uPVC patio doors open onto a private garden. Inside, buyers have a choice of fitted kitchen, while the bathrooms and ensuites come with tiling.
An air-to-water heat pump system at the A-rated properties provides underfloor heating to the ground floor and to the radiators on the other floors, while a high-efficiency mechanical ventilation system removes stale air.
Viewings at Doire Feá are by appointment.
