If you’re in the market for a luxurious new home in the west of Ireland, you’ve come to the right place. Located throughout Galway, the properties below are presented in turn-key condition and offer a tad more character than a standard three-bed semi. Could one of these be the home of your dreams?

Clarin House, Stradbally East, Clarinbridge, Co. Galway – €2,150,000

Set upon 7.65 acres of mature grounds and woodland, this five-bedroom house at Clarinbridge is built to an exceptionally high standard. The reception areas, living room and some of the bedrooms are fitted with an audio/visual entertainment system. What’s more, the home-bar and sports room make it an ideal spot for entertaining guests. The large, bright kitchen is fitted with a bespoke range of wall and floor units; some of which incorporate Gaggenau appliances. The kitchen also features a central breakfast bar with a wooden worktop. Elsewhere on the ground floor, you’ll find a home office, gym and playroom. Each of the spacious bedrooms upstairs includes an ensuite, while the master also has a ‘his & hers’ dressing area and its own private living room.

Ardvarna, Taylors Hill, Galway – €1,200,000

Taylors Hill Road is regarded as Galway’s most desirable residential area, and Ardvana certainly lives up to that standard. The house stands on an elevated site just minutes from Salthill Village and Galway City. The property includes four spacious double bedrooms, all of which have built-in wardrobes. The sitting room has 10ft ceilings and a feature fireplace made of cast iron, while the family lounge has two gable sash windows and a Chesney stone fireplace. Other property features include a south-facing balcony, a large private garden, ample off-street parking and a garden shed.

Hazelbrook House, Taylors Hill, Galway

As with the property above, Hazelbrook House is located in the sought-after area of Taylors Hill. Built in 2003 for its current owners (and beautifully maintained throughout), the property offers panoramic views across Galway Bay and the surrounding coastline. With five large bedrooms, five bathrooms and a guest WC, it’s an ideal family home. The living room is magnificent; with 20ft ceilings and a 28-light chandelier. The kitchen/diner, meanwhile, is fitted with an American fridge-freezer, double oven and ceramic hob. A separate pantry provides additional storage. Outside, electric gates with an intercom keep the house secure.
