Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: We live and work in New York City but fell in love with Ireland on our first visit 10 years ago. Each summer, we visited different areas of Ireland and went on various horse riding holidays. We fell in love with the small village of Gortnacooheen just outside of Portumna. We built this house from the stone that remained from the original buildings on the site. We built it with the idea of one day retiring here. Each year, the garden develops more and each year, we love it more. We hope you will come visit.
Why the Owner Chose Fairyhill, Co. Galway, Ireland:
Absolute luxury with softened filtered water, High end, imported furnishings, linens and cookware.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
