WHETHER YOU DREAM of views of the sea or to mountains far beyond, it’s hard to deny the appeal of a property in a picturesque location.
This week we’re looking at four homes around the country with beautiful views, from a three-bed in Connemara to a house with a self-contained apartment in Kerry.
Tullymore, Co Galway – €675,000
Located in Connemara, Co Galway, this three-bed property boasts unrivalled sea and mountain views. Sitting on an elevated site, the house looks down and out onto the Atlantic Ocean, Mweelrea Mountain and many islands and inlets. The interior is light-filled and charming, with inviting living spaces. Tullycross village is a 20-minute walk away.
Drumcliff, Co Sligo – €430,000
Tucked away in the beautiful Sligo countryside, this six-bed property boasts breath-taking views from every angle. The residence sits on 0.5 acres of manicured grounds, including mature trees and hedges, patio areas and a wooden cabin. The most impressive view, however, is of the famous Benbulben mountain. The interior is charming and light-filled, although it would benefit from modernisation in parts.
Ballymagowan Lower, Co Donegal – €475,000
A four-bed property, Cor na Ron (translated from Irish to mean ‘the seal’s pool’) sits on an elevated site of 1.32 acres. It enjoys breath-taking views of Mulroy Bay, with the tidal waters of the bay just across the road for morning swims, kayaking and fishing. It features a clean and spacious interior, with Italian porcelain tiling throughout all reception and main living areas, and timber in the bedrooms.
Reennanallagane, Co Kerry – €660,000
Perched on 2.42 acres of beautiful grounds, the sale of this property includes a two-storey four-bed house and a two-bed self-contained apartment. The interior features a charming country-style, with wooden beams, tiled flooring and brick-surround fireplaces. Picturesque views can be enjoyed from all angles, including of Rossbeigh Strand and Castlemaine Harbour.
