Set at the foothills of the Twelve Bens in the stunning Inagh Valley, it’s hard to imagine a more picturesque location.

If you’re looking for a house in a beautiful location, you’d struggle to find somewhere more spectacular than the spot this home in Kylemore enjoys.

Situated in the Inagh Valley, it has views of the nearby Twelve Bens and Maumturks, and is also close to Lough Inagh: a dream for those who love walking and other outdoor pursuits.

Connemara home for sale

The three-bed home has plenty of character, and while some aspects of the décor might benefit from an update, it’s in good condition and could be moved into straight away.

The kitchen, one of the main spaces in the home, is warm, with pine units and coloured tiles on both the floor and the splashback. There is a separate dining space, with views out to the surrounding countryside, leading through to the living room which has a feature stone fireplace and a high vaulted ceiling.

Connemara home for sale

The three bedrooms are on the ground floor, one of which is ensuite, while upstairs there is a large additional living space with vaulted ceiling.

Outside there is a patio area, as well as a sheltered area where the current owners have a table-tennis table, but would also be suitable for a barbecue. There is garden to either side of the house, and there is also a garage, as well as an old stone outbuilding that has the potential to be put to a number of uses.

As well as its beautiful location, this home is also just 11km from the village of Letterfrack, known as a creative hub with its furniture college, as well as the home of several small festivals throughout the year. Connemara National Park is also nearby, ideal for walking and hiking.

Click through our gallery for the full tour of this home, which is on sale through Matt O’Sullivan Auctioneers.
