Full description:

Drimneen House is a fine "Country House" style riverside residence fronting and overlooking the Drimneen River; a tributary of, and only a short boat ride to, Lough Corrib. Drimneen Set amidst four acres of grounds, made up of developed gardens, lawns, shrub beds and two paddocks, it is accessed off local road via a short fine gravel avenue.

Aughanure Castle is close by and also fronts onto the Drimneen River and has access to some of Lough Corrib's best fishing around Oughterard Bay, Greenfields and Birchall. Oughterard Golf Club is approximately 700 metres from the house.

The residence was built by its current owner in 2003 and offers a high standard of fitout and accommodation. It is evident on entering this home the amount of thought, care and attention to detail that went into the design and fit out of this home.

Extending to approximately 387sq m (4166 sq ft) approx. , its rooms are large, bright, well-proportioned and all take full advantage of its countryside setting overlooking the gardens and the river. From the feature stairwell in the entrance hall to the specially treated solid oak timber floors (suitable for under floor heating) to the Rayburn Stove in the kitchen, and many dual aspect rooms, you can appreciate the care this home has received.

The house is large, well planned and it offers potential purchasers the opportunity for a large family home or a potential opportunity for guest accommodation.

Approximately 75 metres of frontage onto the Drimneen River gives a very pleasant aspect as well as the opportunity to fish and gain access via boat to Lough Corrib.
