Seamus Carthy of Carthy and Associates in Castlerea is this week offering one of the most interesting properties in the county for sale.

A guide price of €600,000 has been set. The charming building was restored in recent years and offers unlimited possibilities and potential.

The chapel is a delightful feature with its bright setting, double height ceiling, with a beautiful gallery and tall elegant windows, offering endless potential. The first floor bedrooms are generous in size with high ceilings and gothic style windows. The kitchen maintains its traditional charm with an open face solid fuel fireplace and oak surfaced worktop.
