Full description:

DNG Martin O'Connor Estates agents are delighted to be able to offer for sale this amazing property at Glengowla, Oughterard. Tucked away off the N59 in a picturesque countryside setting this wonderful holding consists of a traditional two storey farm house with a single storey cottage on c.23.2 acres of land with extensive river frontage onto the Owenriff River of c. 320 metres.

The property at the end of a council maintained road presents itself as a unique opportunity to those who are looking to find a country home with character and even more so to those looking to establish a small farm. Due to its location on the Old Railway line, on the proposed Greenway and next door to the Glengowla mines attraction, it would be a lovely setting for a business such as pet farm, healing centre, cookery school or guest house.

It is rare to find such a holding with so much to offer especially so close to Oughterard and within a half an hour of Galway City. The land all enclosed by stone walls is laid out in various field sizes with a mixture of meadows, woodlands, railway line and rough grazing. The two storey house dates to c. 1932 and original homestead the single storey cottage dates to c. 1840. In need of full renovation both properties have unlimited potential to be renovated to their former glory in a modern style and be in the heart of wonderful unspoiled Connemara countryside.
