Luxury living in the Howth hills at this €2.5m lodge with a games room and ocean views
Galtee Lodge sits above Howth village, overlooking the streets below.

POSITIONED ON AN elevated site above Howth village, Galtee Lodge offers more than meets the eye.

The six-bed property in north Dublin was designed by award-winning architect David Craig, and the careful thought and consideration than went into its planning is evident from the moment you step through the front door. 

Set into a sloping site, two storeys are presented to the front and one is presented to the rear. The accommodation, which spans 4,000 sq ft, was designed to take full advantage of the property’s location, allowing for panoramic sea views towards Ireland’s Eye and Lambay Island. 

The property is currently on the market for €2,500,000 with Gallagher Quigley.

Entering the home at the top level, it revolves around an impressive dual-aspect kitchen-living-dining space, bathed in natural light during the day. At night, the lights of the village provide the vista, with views over the surrounding streets towards the harbour and Ireland’s Eye.

This double-height space opens to a balcony at the front and a large terrace at the rear. The balcony also has access to a separate family room with a cosier atmosphere, while the master bedroom suite has its own smaller balcony area.

Following the slope of the land to the lower floor, five further bedrooms all open on to the generous outdoor space. A games room is currently home to a TV and pool table, but could be adapted to any number of uses.

To the rear is a sunny, south-facing private garden which would be an ideal starting point for those with an interest in horticulture. A substantial detached garage is also part of the property.
