Ballycurrin House dates from the 1770s and is a beautifully restored period house located in rural splendour close to the shores of the famous Lough Corrib on approx 3.7 acres of land with a charming guest cottage, caretaker’s lodge, and the historic ruins of the 14th centutry Ballycurrin Castle.
Ballycurrin Estate also has its own private access to the lake, ideally located for those interested in fishing some of the best waters in Western Europe. It is less than 50 metres from the lakeshore. The only inland Lighthouse in Ireland, Ballycurrin Lighthouse, is just a short walk from the property. Decendants of Sir Henry Lynch, first Baronet of Galway, occupied the demesne until the estate passed to the Clarkin family in 1897. A house was built in 1828 on the shores of lough Corrib to replace an older one.
Restoration work was completed in 2010 and the two storey over garden level house has been restored to the highest standards. Two large reception rooms with feature fireplaces are located on the first floor with three large en-suite bedrooms on the second floor. The master suite has its own jacuzzi bath. All bedrooms have fireplaces. There is an elegant hallway with a stained glass window backdrop to the staircase. Both the kitchen and dining room are located at the garden level of the house.
Most rooms have tremendous views of Lough Corrib and the surrounding countryside. The property is offered fully furnished, with a great selection of antique Irish furniture.
The stone fronted dormer cottage lies adjacent to Ballycurrin House, and includes two large bedrooms (both en-suite), an open plan living and dining area with open hearth fireplace, and a fully equipped kitchen including oven, hob, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, dryer, Stanley stove, etc.
