Just waiting to be discovered, our 5-Star Galway hideaway offers a dreamlike setting entirely immersed in a 12-acre riverside estate painted with river and woodland walks. Most impressive is the unique location at the historical Thoor Ballylee; a 15th-century Hiberno-Norman castle and home of Nobel Laureate, William Butler Yeats.

On the famed Lady Gregory and WB Yeats trail, its writer's paradise and in his own words Yeats once said: “To leave this place is to leave beauty behind.”

This secluded riverside residence with mature gardens has four stylish ensuite bedrooms, three king size bedrooms downstairs and a super king size bedroom suite upstairs. Our 5-Star home is finished to the highest standard, complementing an idyllic riverside setting and country base to explore Galway (proximately listed below) and as a gateway to the Burren.
