This elegant Georgian house, built by an officer in Nelson's fleet, stands on superbly landscaped private gardens of over an acre. A historic villa style residence, it offers exceptional privacy and space on the shores of Galway Bay near the sandy beaches of Salthill.
It is now available to rent on a short or long term basis, and makes a unique and outstanding vacation home. It offers luxurious self catering accommodation for up to ten people, six in the main house and a further four in a linked apartment.
Vitcory House is an ideal venue for special informal work meetings, intimate family celebrations or reunions and memorable holidays. It is perfectly located for all that the West of Ireland has to offer, especially its many superb golf courses, game and coarse fishing, or sailing and scuba diving off the coast.
The beautiful mountains and lakes of Connemara, the Cliffs of Moher and the Burren are just a short drive away. There are frequent daily boat trips to the nearby spectacular Aran Islands.
This beautiful historic home lies just minutes from the vibrant heart of friendly Galway city, famed as a centre for Irelandís arts, culture and musical heritage. It has an excellent selection of specialist shops, restaurants and theatres (it is home to the Druid theatre), pubs with traditional music or jazz, and art and sculpture exhibitions.
The famous Salthill Promenade lies minutes from Victory House and is ideal for jogging or a leisurely stroll, listening to the gentle lapping of the waves and enjoying the views of Galway Bay.>
Visit the Irish speaking Aran Islands (there are frequent daily trips by boat or plane). These islands abound in pre-Christian stone forts and tiny monastic churches.
In South Galway and Clare lie the breathtaking Cliffs of Moher and the Burren , so popular with walkers and botanic experts from all over the world.
