On the shore of Lough Corrib and overlooking Moycullen Bay, the property is situated at the end of a quiet baureen road and then behind a gated entrance. This location offers the purchaser the best of both worlds being so close to a wide range of amenities only 4.8 miles from Moycullen and 13 miles from Galway in a lovely lakeside setting away from the noise and crowds of the city and on a no through road. The nearest National School is located less than 3 miles away at Tullokyne, with four other primary schools within easy reach.
