Charming cottage in quiet country setting

 With a price of €155,000, this charming two-bedroom cottage just a mile and a half from Williamstown is sure to be snapped up in coming weeks.             It’s the perfect holiday retreat in the west, or indeed a lovely starter home in a quiet and tranquil setting. The property at Islands, Williamstown is being sold by Gerry Coffey Auctioneer.             Although the cottage has all the attractions of the traditional rural cottage, it has been recently renovated, which included dry lining, re-wiring, a new oil-fired central heating system, PVC windows and doors and a modern shower and bathroom, so while you have all the benefits of country living, the new owners will also enjoy every modern convenience.             The house is one and a half miles from Williamstown and just 2.5 miles from Ballinlough. It comes with a generous garden and there is a large garden shed on site.             Auctioneer Gerry Coffey commented: ‘For such an affordable price tag, it won’t be on our books for long.’ Both Williamstown and Ballinlough boast a range of social, educational, sporting and retail amenities. Williamstown is a vibrant village in east Galway, with a range of pubs and shops, while Ballinlough is located on one of the west’s main thoroughfares and facilities include the local White House Hotel, a modern hotel complete with restaurant and conferencing facilities.             The area is a renowned area for coarse fishing and this cottage would make an ideal rural retreat for the fishing enthusiast, being near the renowned Lake O’Flynn as well as a number of other smaller fishing lakes in the region.             For further information on this beautiful property, call Gerry Coffey auctioneer on (094) 96 43600 or email
