THIS ESTATE enjoys a magnificent setting of mountains, forest, lake and parkland and yet is only 11 miles from Galway City. The property comprises a luxurious main house, a wing with four interconnecting apartments, two separate cottages, indoor heated swimming pool, a hard tennis court, a chapel in the courtyard and a menagerie of Connemara ponies. The gardens are wonderful, with 18th century parkland sweeping down to a fish-filled lake (with angling opportunities) and charming walled gardens behind the house. Within four miles is an 18 hole golf course, a five star restaurant, pony-trekking and Europe's largest free trout and salmon lake.
Each of the four interconnecting cottages/apartments has its own fully equipped compact kitchen. Whilst they can be taken as a single unit, they are completely private from each other as well, and you can rent one apartment and not be aware of any other guests.
