Top Properties Overlooking Rusheen Bay Now On The Market

#WATERFRONT PROPERTY - Two wonderful properties overlooking Rusheen Bay near Galway city are sure to tempt those looking for a home with stunning views and salty air.

Coole is a spacious (201 sqm) five-bed detached family home on an elevated setting overlooking the bay and close to the amenities of Salthill, Barna and the city, on the market for €360,000.

Accommodation comprises an entrance hall with tile and timber floor, solid timber stairs and under-stairs storage; a living room also with timber flooring, a bay window and gas fireplace; and a kitchen with tiled floor, quality solid timber fittings, islands and all mod cons.

The dining area comes with solid timber floor and double doors to the rear patio, while the utility room to the rear of the kitchen has built-in presses and is plumbed for a washing machine and dryer. It also houses an oil boiler and guest toilet, and has a door to the rear patio and garden.

Solid timber flooring continued on the first floor, with four bedrooms, the main bathroom and a walk-in hot press. The second floor hosts the fifth and largest bedroom, with extensive built-in wardrobes and a tiled en-suite shower.

Outside, a tarmac driveway provides parking for two or three vehicles, and steps lead to a raised lawn and patio at the front, with access to the private rear garden.

Viewing is by appointment only with Sherry FitzGerald Kavanagh at 091 569123. More details on the property, including images, are available HERE.

Nearby, The Irish Times highlights another luxury family home in an area where houses "rarely come to market".

Set just 200 yards from the beach and surfing school, this four-bed home with an asking price of €740,000 stands on a quarter-acre of landscaped gardens and boasts "spectacular" views of Rusheen Bay.

Designed to maximise light, the property of two levels includes a dining room, two sizeable reception areas with marble fireplace and wood-burning stove respectively, and four double-bedrooms (two with bay views).

Viewing is by appointment only with O'Donnellan Joyce at 087 288 7446 or 086 817 3335. More details on the property, including images, are available HERE.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open. is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
