Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: We are selling at end of season 2018. We will consider house swap and longer term rentals for winter of 2017. Let's do it !

Why the Owner Chose Galway, Ireland:
Banba House called to me. Has ease of access to Galway city 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. Seven golf courses within 20 minutes and very good local town course. It's 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....See our reviews on tip advisor Large private exclusive and very safe residential area. It's 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 can't hear the train, but it's out there, first class service is available on most trains.
