Abbey View is a stunning old world home set in the heart of the Burren. The house has two reception rooms and 3 double bedrooms with the potential to convert the store room into a fourth single bedroom. It has been carefully modernised to retain a charm that complements its beautiful location. The house is nestled in a valley near Turlough Hill just 1.5km from Bell Harbour and the sea. It is set on a secluded site hidden from the main road and accessed via a private road. The house is surrounded by lush green fields and has the backdrop of Burren limestone hills. There are distant views across Galway Bay to Connemara.
Down the valley there are views of the famous Corcomroe Abbey. This location was once chosen by the Cistercian Monks in the 10th century as the ideal settlement site for their Oughtmama churches. Hill walkers can walk out the back door and straight up onto Turlough hill and onto Oughtmama. The walk takes one by the seven churches that were the 10th century settlement of the monks. These church ruins are approximately 500m from the house. There are also excellent hill walks that will bring one directly to Ballyvaughan. Should the craving need to be satisfied there is an artisan chocolatier and associated café within walking distance also.
The area is an ideal location for nature lovers. There are very low levels of light pollution at night, making it perfect for star gazing. The Burren is rich in, and famous for, flora. In addition, the fields surrounding the house are abundant in wild life such as foxes, badgers and wild Burren goats that can often be seem grazing nearby.
