LOCATED A 10-MINUTE stroll from the shores of Lough Corrib in Clonbur, Co Galway, Carrick Shore oozes a sense of peacefulness and relaxation.

The four-bed property is on the market for €675,000 through Sherry FitzGerald and is ideally positioned for those with a love of nature and the outdoors. The residence has its own private fishing jetty, accessed through a private road with capacity for two boats.

The jetty is situated on 0.3 acres of lakeshore, meaning the new owners can enjoy a dip in the lake or picnics in between fishing trips. 

The property itself sits on 2.8 acres of beautifully landscaped mature gardens, including a raised terrace with beautiful views of the lake.

Built around 30 years ago, Carrick Shore was previously used as a shooting and fishing lodge, with guests including former French prime ministers and aristocracy. It goes without saying, then, that the accommodation is highly impressive. 

Spanning 2,378 sq ft across one storey, the interior is well thought out. The majority of the rooms enjoy lake and mountain views, while the design is simple and pared back yet stylish and elegant.

Stepping inside, the light-filled kitchen makes a great first impression. Floor-to-ceiling windows overlook the lake, while vaulted ceilings create a great sense of spaciousness. There are tiled floors in here, with the kitchen cabinets are laid out in an L-shape to accommodate a breakfast bar.

To the rear of the kitchen on the upper level, there are two bedrooms with en suite bathrooms, while the sitting and dining room is accessed through double doors.

This space boasts panoramic views over Lough Corrib, with double doors opening onto the front patio for evenings spent dining al fresco. There’s plenty of space for both a dining area and a seating area in here, with a large stone feature fireplace acting as the focal point.

A study/reading area with lake views separates the main living area from the drawing room, which is complete with an open fire and wood floors. The master bedroom and en suite bathroom is accessed via a hallway from here, with another double bedroom and en suite bathroom on the other side.
