The house is slightly elevated and enjoys excellent views over the surrounding countryside. Cloonacauneen is a quiet and settled country location just 7km from Eyre Square.

Another batch of homes to go under ‘virtual’ hammer with successful online auction house
I AM Sold Property Auctions, which runs The Connacht, Leinster, Munster and Northern Ireland Property Auctions have a number of upcoming online auctions, with the next Connacht Property Auction taking place on April 29.
According to the company, its online auctions have been in high demand over the past few months and offer buyers and sellers the chance to transact their properties without any need for usual travel and interactions needed with other sale processes.
Sales Manager Shane May said: “While current restrictions are preventing the industry from working to full capacity, we have seen a significant increase in the enquiry levels on this time last year prior to the pandemic. The first quarter of 2021 has been busy, both in terms of sales and enquiries, despite available properties being at their lowest level in over 10 years.
“Once lockdown restrictions were lifted last year, the pent-up demand was very evident with a surge of sales and closing from June to December. We are confident that this will again be the case once restrictions ease and with low stock and high demand, it is a surprisingly good time for property owners to sell their properties,” said Mr May.
The Connacht Property Auction are the only auction company who do not charge any upfront costs to enter a property into auction and with buyers spread across the province, the auction team are confident they can continue to get strong results.
Among the properties set to go under the virtual hammer are:
28 Rian Luachra, Ballybane, Galway. A three-bed semi with full planning permission for a second three-bed semi, offered at bids over €230,000 in partnership with REMAX Galway. No 28 is presented in excellent condition throughout having been well maintained by the current owner. The rear of the property boasts a sunny south-facing aspect with gated side access and large manicured lawns feature to the rear and side of the property. Rian Luachra is a wonderful family friendly estate located four minutes from Merlin Woods and five minutes from Ballyloughane Beach.
