                  Why the Owner Chose Galway City:
                  Banba House called to me. Has very best ease of access available to Galway city in only a few minutes away and no parking problems and no drink/drive issues with buses and trains running every hour, and 'till 2.30 am at weekends. Athenry is a very beautiful historic town with attractive narrow streets and magnificent fully restored castle. Train to Dublin ( 2 hrs)and Limerick just two minutes walk to the platform. & 7 Seven golf courses within 20 miles and very good local town course.Its a wonderful laid back place to chill out and let your hair down..

                  The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
                  Long and short term rentals. An artists \ writers musicians winter retreat. Art studio available by arrangement. Large private exclusive and very safe residentuial area. Its so handy to Galway and with the train to Dublin and Shannon just two minutes walk away, why rent a car until you get here, the car hire companies will collect you or deliver if you ask. You cant hear the train, but its out there, first class service is available on most trains.
