Property Overview

The Connacht Property Auction in partnership with DNG Martin O'Connor

Offered at bids over €270,000

Fairy Bridge House & Cottage are rare and unique 17th century whitewashed thatched cottages located on the scenic high road above Lough Corrib, only 1 mile from the pretty village of Oughterard.

Previously home to Lord McCoy it was purchased by the current owners in 1993 who have created a unique atmosphere which one would find difficult to recreate in this ideal hideaway location.

There are many original features to be found in both properties including beamed ceilings and exposed stone walls which add to the character and charm of the properties.

The main cottage which is used as the owner private residences offer a spacious living/dining room with solid fuel stove, kitchen/breakfast room, three bedrooms (2 ensuite) and shower room.

The cottage is currently used as a holiday letting offers an open plan living room/dining/kitchen, shower room and the traditional loft bedroom accessed by ladder.

The entry pathway to Fairy Bridge is lined with blooming rosebushes and the properties are surrounded with greenery, flowers and little grottos where you may quietly sit and soak up the unique atmosphere.

There are a series of outbuildings around the site and a mobile home which can also be utilised as holiday letting accommodation.

It really is a magical fairy tale place and must be viewed to be truly appreciated.

Take the Galway to Clifden road N59, continue through Moycullen, Rosscahill and on to Oughterard. As you leaving Oughterard take a right turn at the end of the bridge, continue on this road for approximately 1km, the house is located on your right hand side

Building Energy Rating (BERs)

Building Energy Ratings (BERs) give information on how to make your home more energy efficient and reduce your energy costs. All homes bought, sold or rented require an BER. BERs carry ratings that compare the current energy efficiency and estimated costs of energy use with potential figures that your home could achieve. Potential figures are calculated by estimating what the energy efficiency and energy costs could be if energy saving measures were put in place. The rating measures the energy efficiency of your home using a grade from ‘A’ to ‘G’. An ‘A’ rating is the most efficient, while ‘G’ is the least efficient. The average efficiency grade to date is ‘D’. All homes are measured using the same calculations, so you can compare the energy efficiency of different properties.
