Beautiful house within 10 minutes of Galway city in the west of Ireland.

Our detached house is set on a 1 acre site, 2kms from Claregalway village and 10 kms from Galway City( European capital of Culture 2020). We are a family of five. John is a secondary school teacher of Geography and Science and Dympna is a Primary school teacher. We have three children. Our son Riain is 15 and our two daughters are Laoise who is 13 and Blaithin who is 4.
We have 4 bedrooms( Sleeps 9), 3 Bathrooms and a large living area.
We live in the West of Ireland and Galway is one of the most unique parts of Ireland for visitors to explore. With barren fields, rugged coastline, stone-walled fields, stark mountain ranges, and vast boglands, the West has some of the richest scenic beauty and natural attractions in Ireland.
Galway City is a thriving, bohemian, cultural city on the western coast of Ireland. Along with being a popular seaside destination with beautiful beaches and long winding promenade, it also has a buzzing cosmopolitan city centre. The city is a joy to explore with its labyrinthine cobbled streets, colourful shop facades and busy café/ bar culture. The city is also well known for its many festivals throughout the year.
