This charming two-bedroom cottage enjoys the most idyllic of settings in the heart of the majestic plains of south Mayo and is just a stone throw from the renowned angling waters of Loughs Carra and Mask.
Beautifully maintained and expanded, this cosy, welcoming residence meets all the standards of modern day living while staying true to its rich heritage through the preservation and tasteful showcasing of highly desirable period features.
If you are keen to escape the rat race, this tranquil bolthole could represent the opportunity you have been dreaming of to create a quality lifestyle, rich in the spoils of country living while conveniently accessible to modern commercial centres ranging from country towns and commuter hubs right up to county capitals like Castlebar in Co Mayo and Galway city.
Carrowkilleen is located on a small, quiet country road just off the L1606 route that skirts along the shore of Lough Carra and links the village of Carnacon to Hollymount.
The latter is the nearest town to this property and marks the midway point between the bustling commercial centres of Ballinrobe (capital of Mayo Lake District) and Claremorris.
Mayo county town of Castlebar is a half hour commute away while Galway city can be reached in just under one hour drive as can Ireland West Airport Knock.
Set amid rolling green fields, peppered with cut stone walls and verdant hedgerows, this property enjoys the most private of settings and mesmerising views.
