              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1995

              About the owner: We built this house and lived in it for a number of years until commitments to our 5 children's activities forced us to relocate to the adjoining city of Galway (approx 50 km). We loved living here and intend to move back when our kids are grown.

              Why the Owner Chose Burren:
              The setting is unique. It overlooks Galway Bay and access to the beach is through a little wooden gate at the bottom of the garden. The house is built in local stone and is very cosy, with open fireplaces in the sitting room and two of the bedrooms. It is situated in spectacular Burren landscape and is just outside the village of Ballyvaughan, with its lovely pubs and restaurants. .

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              We loved the setting from the word go. People felt we would not get planning permission but we designed a sympathetic low level stone house which is cut into the hillside and blends into the landscape. The peace and tranquility of the location, the comfort of the house, the direct beach access, and the proximity to Ballyvaughan & Galway are the benefits that people will enjoy in our opinion.
