Colleran Auctioneers has just been favoured with the sale of one of Galway's landmark properties ‘Spires House, Shantalla Road, Galway. Due to its size and location behind the University Hospital and only a ten minute stroll from University of Galway it will immediately appeal to anyone looking for an investment, especially builders looking for a development opportunity. The property currently consists of ten, one and two bedroom self-contained flats over two and three floors, totalling approximately 557 sqm / 6,000 sqft. In need of substantial capital investment to realise its full potential this high profile property offers a unique investment and development opportunity with huge potential to redevelop into modern apartments, a home or possibly a commercial opportunity subject to planning ie modern tech offices or exhibition centre . There is also a large forecourt offering off street parking.Spire House got its name from the two spires on its roof. The Rev. John Courtney Clare who was the Presbyterian minister in Galway lived in the house from 1882 – 1917. From 1917 – 1925 it was occupied by the Young family. The Rev. Young was also a Presbyterian minister. On the 26th June 1925 the Sisters of Jesus and Mary bought the house as a suitable premises for a house of studies for three sisters of their order who had come to UCG. The nuns become known as the ‘Spires Nuns'. The nuns later added to this building and acquired ‘Fort Eyre'. Fort Eyre was built by a Cromwellian and occupied by the Maunsells family until 1890 when it was taken over by the British army to house officers. The prime location of ‘Spires House' offers unmatched convenience so close to the hospital, university and city centre.
