What else could I get for... the €135,000 pricetag on this country cottage in Galway

We take a look at what €135,000 would get you around the rest of the country.

THIS COTTAGE IN Co Galway is an ideal for someone looking for a country hideaway.

Situated in Rosmuc, it is said to be in good condition inside and to have a “lovely warm and inviting feel”.

It comes with a lot for its €135,000 pricetag. It sits on one acre of its own grounds, surrounding by a range of mature trees. These encompass the property and ensure that it is protected from the elements.

It has excellent views of surrounding mountains and Camus and Kilkieran Bay.

It has three bedrooms inside with oil-fired central heating and double glazing throughout, ensuring it keeps the heat in. The kitchen has its own large solid-fuel range that has been installed by the current owners in the past couple of years.

The house’s water system runs off of a group water scheme and is plumbed into its own septic tank.

Here is what around €135,000 would get you across the rest of the country… 


This traditional farmhouse comes with 1.6 acres of its own grounds and overlooks St Kearns Bay and the Bannow Bay Estuary. While the property benefits from stunning views of the surrounding scenery, it is in need of substantial modernisation before anyone would be able to move into it.

It has four bedrooms, a number of outhouses and is close to various local beaches.

It is on the market with an estimated value of €150,000 and will be auctioned at the end of the month.
