3 picturesque homes in Co Galway for under €250,000

These picture-perfect properties each have their own unique charm.

There are plenty of homes that might not catch your attention from the outside that turn out to be gorgeous inside, but it’s hard to deny the thrill of coming across a property that grabs you from the second you lay eyes on it.

Whether it’s a rustic stone façade, a thatched roof, or just a beautifully planted garden out front, there are many reasons a house sticks in your mind. Of course, the old adage about not judging a book by its cover certainly applies here, as no matter how charming the outside of a house, the inside can still need a lot of work. 

This in itself can be an opportunity, however, to put your own stamp on the interiors, and it’s generally much easier to renovate the inside of a house than try and alter the exterior. Here are three homes in Co Galway that certainly have alluring exteriors, all for €250,000 and under.

Lisduff Cottage, Craughwell, €249,000

homes in Co Galway

This beautiful two-bed thatched cottage dates back to the early 19th century. It has traditional stone walls, and inside it has surprisingly high ceilings and large rooms, not what you would expect from this style of home. 

To the rear of the home has a patio area, while the garden has a large shed and raised beds for vegetable growing. The village of Craughwell has plenty of local amenities, while Galway city is just 25 kilometres away.

Riverside, Clifden, €250,000

homes in Co Galway

This red-brick home sits at the end of a terrace and enjoys views over the river. Inside it requires some modernisation, but with four bedrooms, it is a decent size. There is also space to extend at the back of the house, subject to planning permission.

Its location in Clifden means it has many incredible beaches nearby, as well as the many stunning views of the Wild Atlantic Way.

Bamberry House, Shangarry, Loughrea, €220,000

homes in Co Galway

Just 11 kilometres from Loughrea, this three-bed home is set in a peaceful location on a quiet road. Its stone walls give plenty of character, and the rooms are well-sized. 

The house sits on 1.46 acres of land, and it is surrounded by mature trees and greenery.  A number of stone outbuildings also give the potential for a variety of uses, including as a home office, workshop, or as additional storage.
