PERFECTLY POSITIONED ALONG the Wild Atlantic Way in Spiddal, Co Galway, Cloch na Scith boasts one of Ireland’s most famous locations as its address.

Located on a 4.4 acre site that stretches to the coastline of the Atlantic Ocean, the five-bed property enjoys views across Galway Bay and all the way to The Burren in Co Clare.

The €795,000 sale includes a five-bedroom main residence, a two-bed guest cottage and a number of outbuildings, including a spacious workshop. Both properties are traditional thatched cottages with picture-perfect exteriors, which fit in perfectly with the beautiful gardens.

The main accommodation spans two floors and features a warm and welcoming country-style interior. While the property has been updated to suit modern life, textured walls, ceiling beams and wooden finishes maintain the charming, olde worlde feel.

There are several living areas in this cottage, including a cosy lounge with vaulted ceilings and a feature fireplace. The main living area is the most impressive, however, with south-facing floor-to-ceiling windows providing uninterrupted views of the bay and the surrounding gardens. 

There are three bedrooms on the ground floor, along with two en suite bathrooms, while the two large double bedrooms on the second floor each have their own bathroom.

The second cottage is equally charming, and has been used as guest accommodation since 2014. On the ground floor, there’s a neat kitchen and dining area with a wood-burning stove, a lounge with views of the gardens and bay, a main bathroom and a tasteful bedroom with an en suite bathroom. A bedroom on the first floor completes the accommodation.

The gardens play an important role in creating the comforting atmosphere at Cloch na Scith, with beautiful trees, shrubs, flowers dotted throughout the manicured lawns.  

Although it feels like it’s in a world of its own, the property is set back off the main coast road to Connemara. Spiddal village is a five minute drive (or a 30-minute walk) away, while Galway city can be reached in 20 minutes.

Cloch na Scith, Spiddal, Co Galway is on the market for €795,000 through McKeown Estate Agents via Daft.ie.
