Fifteen Galway properties to go under hammer



Gort na Rí, Gort - RESERVE: €60,000

Fifteen properties in Galway – with reserve prices totaling more than €1.1 million – will go under the hammer next month as part of a nationwide Allsop auction.

According to the agents, the Galway offering includes many income-producing properties, but also a large selection of vacant houses and apartments suitable for owner-occupiers and buy-to-let investors.

Commercial Director Robert Hoban said: “As we approach the end of another year, we can look back on an eventful, but encouraging, twelve months for the property market.

“The new lending rules are in place for residential owner occupiers and are now well-established and understood.

“The commercial investment market has witnessed a continued level of healthy activity.

“The rental market continues to seek a release valve to relieve some of the upward pressure on prices. As more vacant residential properties come to the market, such as in this latest catalogue, demand should be further met by supply.

“Also, the approaching year-end signals an opportunity for funds to secure investments within the 2015 financial year,” said Mr Hoban.

Among the residential properties for sale are:

6 Clifton Crescent, Newcastle, Galway. A detached three-bed bungalow extending to 1,420 sq ft and close to NUI Galway and University Hospital. Reserve price not to exceed €200,000.

154 Bohermore, Galway. A mid-terrace three-bed house measuring 860 sq ft. Reserve price €135,000.

19th Century cottage boasts incredible views



The cottage is set on almost 11 acres.

DNG Martin O’Connor Land Sales are holding an online auction on May 11, where two lots of land in Letterfrack will go under the hammer.

The first lot is an opportunity to acquire a cottage with shed ruins on 4.34ha (10.72 acres) of top-quality land at Attirowerty. Enjoying incredible views in all direction, this land is one of the most outstanding opportunities to acquire a lovely holding of meticulously maintained farmland in the Connemara region in many years.

Bordering the Traheen River, the cottage – dating back to the 1800s – is a traditional stone built property under a galvanised roof laid out in two rooms with open fireplaces in each room. Across the yard there are the ruins of a large shed which could be renovated.

Looking south the cottage enjoys views of Ballinakill Bay, Tully Hill and Letter Hill to the west whilst to the north Diamond Hill and the Mweelrea mountains with many more hills of south Mayo are visible in the distance.

Fully enclosed by stonewalls and concrete post with wire fencing, the land laid out in three large sections provides excellent grazing with a cattle holding yard and cattle crush.

The land is suited for all types of livestock grazing with cattle farming been the main enterprise over the years on the holding. Due to its excellent order the land would be the perfect location for breeding Connemara ponies and also ideal for holding sheep due to its field system and good boundaries.

The property presents itself as an excellent proportion for those looking for a cottage hideaway that they can renovate to their own style in this scenic part of Ireland with a wonderful atmosphere surrounding it. The lands are ideally suited to existing landowners looking to expand or those looking to set up a small holding centrally located between Clifden and Letterfrack.

Lot 2, consisting of commonage lands in three sections at Attirowerty and Baunoge, amounts to 25.5 acres and is also for sale by online auction on the day.

For further information, contact DNG Martin O’Connor on 091 866708.
