Derrymoyle House offers lots of accommodation with the main dwelling house being constructed over two garden level units which in the past have been used as apartments and would ideally be suited to home offices, a den or a studio.

It is finished to an extremely high standard and has three ensuite double bedrooms, a large lounge and a fitted kitchen. The garden to the rear of the Clock House is fenced and gated.

The main dwelling house in recent years has been totally refurbished and reconfigured internally to create open plan living accommodation enjoying splendid views of the lake and also enjoying excellent natural light. The property enjoys a right of access to the lake shore across the road where boats can be launched onto the lake. Located within two miles of Oughterard village and its excellent amenities while Galway city is a 30 minute commute makes Derrymoyle House a perfect location to settle and establish a home in one of Irelands most scenic locations.
