From a two-bed in Oranmore to a six-bed in Tuam.

WITH PROPERTY ACROSS the country in such high demand, it can be really hard to get a sense of what your money will get you. 

That’s why each week, we cherrypick a number of homes in a precise location or county, to make things a little easier to digest. 

This week, we’re looking at properties around Galway with an asking price of €500,000 or less – from a detached home in Corofin to a semi-d on the Oranmore just outside the city.

Four-bed, detached, Corofin – €300,000

Doors from here lead to a dining space/play area and ten links to the kitchen and utility room. A guest bathroom also completes the ground floor. The four bedrooms are upstairs, three of which are double with the main bathroom having an en suite. The remaining rooms share the family bathroom.  Parking to the front a roomy back garden make this a great family home.

The house is one of 42 houses just outside Corofin Village which is a 25 minutes drive from Galway City and has its own sense of community, plenty of schooling options and lots of sports to take part in. Claregalway, Lackagh and Tuam are all about a ten minute drive offering more amenities for families at all stages.

Three double bedrooms are on ground floor with the main bedroom enjoying an en suite. A good sized utility room and spacious family bathroom completes the downstairs.
