Photos: ‘Escape the rat race’ with this ‘blank canvass’ 2-bedroom cottage

For sale by unconditional online auction is a two-bedroom country cottage and converted barn in Cappaghnagapple, Clonbur, Galway, F12X765.

Property Partners Emma Gill is guiding the property, which will go under the hammer at 3 pm on Thursday, May 27th, at €150,000.

Accommodate both home and work-life needs

Ceapach Na gCapall Cottage is nestled at the foot of gentle, rolling hills and boasting “breath-taking” lake views.

The selling agent said this presents a “unique prospect for someone looking to escape the rat race and make their own mark on a generous holding that can accommodate both home and work-life needs”.

Located on the Cornamona road from Clonbur, the property is just a short drive from Cong the home of Ashford Castle.

Furthermore, other local attractions include Lough Mask and Corrib, together with scenic walks, a golf course, racecourse, restaurants, bars and much more.

A 20-minute drive takes you to the well-serviced town of Ballinrobe. Besides, the county town of Castlebar and the tourism hotspot of Westport are just a 50-minute commute, while an hour’s drive will have you in Galway.

Set on a 0.73-acre site, Cepach na gCapall sits in a tranquil, rural area. However, it enjoys easy access to some of the west’s leading cultural and commercial centres.

“The cottage was originally built in the 1950s. Recent renovations have lent it a contemporary, light, and airy feel while retaining much of the charm of its mid-20th century heritage.”

“Also, in essence, it is a blank canvass, awaiting the unique stamp of its next owner.”


The accommodation includes a hallway and a generous living area with a large, solid fuel stove. The adjoining, quaint kitchen is accessed via a characterful arch and boasts bespoke pine worktops and units.

The cottage has two double bedrooms and a main bathroom with an electric shower. “It also has a novel loft room with Velux windows accessed via a staircase from the living room and is perfect for a work-from-home set-up.”

The property is heated via a dual oil/back boiler system. “Water is provided by Clonbur Water, and it is through Irish Water, but this will have to be connected. There is a spring in the grounds, which is currently not being utilised.”

Studio apartment

The spacious studio apartment is just a few steps from the main cottage. According to the selling agent, it could be adapted for a “myriad of uses”.
