DescriptionDNG Martin O'Connor Land Sales are delighted to offer sale this very unique hill side holding of land in the Glann area of Oughterard famed internationally for its unique scenic beauty on the shores of Lough Corrib Irelands premier fresh water fishing lake. A renowned region for sheep rearing and pony breeding overlooking Lough Corrib the farm in one block extending to c. 33.23 Acres (13.44 Ha) comes with the substantial ruins of a stone built cottage of 43.8 sq.m. (471 sq.ft.) which has the potential to be reconstructed and extended into a lovely home. There are stunning views from the cottage of the lake and surrounding countryside.
The cottage in the centre of the holding facing south east is approached over a stone roadway with a natural stream running alongside it. The land run as a sheep farm is a large area of open farmland with lots of trees and streams which varies from very good sections of grazing ground to land that has a lot of tree canopy with good grazing and other land that would benefit from some improvement work. The property steeped in history has an old cave from previous mining activities that were undertaken on the lands in the 1800s. Rock deposits from this activity are clearly visible as well as the route of a rail system that was used to transport the minerals to the lake shore for transportation to the Galway City onwards to be processed.
The property has excellent potential to be continued in its present form and further displays great potential for an agri-tourism venture for those looking for a different way of life and take advantage of the wonderful amenities the area has to offer.
