The property

Oughterard 2 miles.

A lovely detached cottage on the rural outskirts of Oughterard, in County Galway.

This hidden gem has been lovingly restored by the owners, literally from the ground up and is superb both internally and externally.

Outside this Oughterard cottage, a combination of render and stone with a slate roof creates a picture-perfect property but it is the inside that will really impress.

The open plan living area of this Oughterard cottage offers a modern shaker-style kitchen flowing through a dining area into a tiled living room with pot-bellied woodburner, drawing the eye up the chimney to the full height of the vaulted ceiling.

Access to the upstairs bedroom and en-suite is by a bespoke circular wrought-iron staircase, leading to a mezzanine balcony that allows you to appreciate the simplicity and style of the living room below.

The countryside around this Oughterard cottage is just as stunning, and the Western Way runs directly outside.

Lough Corrib is less than 2.5 miles away, and Oughterard is your gateway to cruises on this stunning lake, the largest in the Republic of Ireland.

The surrounding countryside of open moorland and mountain scenery will take your breath away, whether you choose to explore by cycle or foot or even in a vintage car - the owner of your Oughterard cottage is a keen vintage car enthusiast himself, and if you are lucky enough to own one of these beautiful cars, this Oughterard cottage may be the perfect place to take it for a spin.

However you choose to enjoy your days out, this lovely Oughterard cottage is the perfect place to return to.

About the location


Galway 17 miles.

The traditional village of Oughterard is found in the west of Ireland on the shores of Lough Corrib, at the start of the Connemara Mountain range and close to the famous Western Way. Home to the Oughterard 18-hole championship golf course, Derroura Mountain Bike Trail and Aughnanure Castle, there are lots of things to see and do, and located next to Lough Corrib, Oughterard is great for lovers of fishing. Just a short drive away in Roscahil is the pretty Brigit's Garden; with four main gardens and places to play, sit and relax, this is a great day out for all the family. Only 17 miles from Oughterard lies Galway City, where you can discover some of Ireland's long and varied history; visit Lynch's Castle, or trace the origin of the famous Claddagh Ring, which originated in a village near the shore of Galway Bay. A lovely lough-side village, all year round.
