Keane Mahony Smith is offering a magnificent historic property in Leenane, located at the junction of the Westport road and the Louisbourg road, directly overlooking Killary Fjord.
Aasleagh Lodge is situated in a wild, rugged valley in the west of Ireland. The River Erriff and the surrounding areas are a premier location for fishing wild Atlantic salmon with guests returning year after year to experience the wonderful fishing in stunning surroundings.
Aasleagh Lodge is a 19th century lodge, constructed by the Marquis of Sligo, perched on a steep hillside overlooking the spot where the River Erriff plunges over a wall of rock to reach Killary Harbour - Ireland's only fjord.
The lodge was designed to provide a comfortable dwelling for friends and acquaintances of the Marquis who came to share the hunting and fishing with him. The property is approached by a winding avenue of c0.4km which is a spectacular entrance, situated in a very elevated position overlooking the fjord.
The lodge was substantially refurbished in 2002 to include drylining, installation of a new heating system, rewiring, etc. There is also a separate two storey lofted barn where the upstairs has been converted to a self-contained two bed apartment.
The property stands on a magnificent site of c20 acres with many mature trees, mainly Scots pines, along with hedgerows and rhododendrons. Comprising a total area of c5,000sq ft with nine bedrooms and nine bathrooms, this is a very special period property, located in a beautiful part of Connemara.
One can experience real country life, fishing, hunting, and walking all the mountains in north Galway and south Mayo, including the Sheeffry Hills, Maam Turks, and Partry mountains.
AMV is €850,000.
