galway daily news the box roundstone connemara property auction 2021

The Box’ situated at Errisbeg in Roundstone, Co. Galway is one of the most outstanding properties to come to the market in Connemara in recent years and would make for a stunning holiday home or permanent residence.

This iconic home was originally designed and built by Dublin sculptor and architect Garry Trimble in the 1960s and the house is literally perched above Dogs Bay with uninterrupted views of the magnificent coastline and surrounding headlands.

O’Donnellan & Joyce Auctioneers will be offering ‘the Box’ for sale by Live Stream Auction this Friday, 4th June with an advised minimum value of €350,000.

The three bedroom house beautifully blends into the rugged landscape and on a clear day it is possible to see Eeragh Lighthouse on the Aran Islands. With such beautiful views over the bay, it’s not unusual to see pods of dolphins cavorting in the water below. 

The property, which extends to approx 83.4 square metres and stands on a site of approx 0.75 of an acre, has been used as a holiday retreat by the current owners since they acquired it in 1978.

It is in need of some upgrading to bring it up to modern standards or alternatively (subject to planning permission) it would provide an inspirational redevelopment project. 

Roundstone is one of the oldest and most picturesque fishing villages in Connemara and is surrounded by breath-taking mountain scenery and lies on the beautiful coastline of Ireland’s western region and ‘Wild Atlantic Way’. 

The residence is just three miles from Roundstone village on the main Roundstone/ Ballyconneely Road and 50 miles from Galway City centre.

‘The Box’ provides a unique opportunity to acquire a permanent residence or holiday home to enjoy Roundstone’s famous amenities and outdoor pursuits.
