The site of the development is located to the south of the Letteragh Road, with agricultural land on one side, and the existing Sliabh Ríoga estate on the other.

The estate would connect to the Letteragh Road, but also to the proposed N59 Link Road along its western boundary.

This link road is intended to connect Rahoon to the N6 Galway Ring Road to the north.

Landscaping of the site proposes to have green wooded areas along its southern and western boundaries, as well as a public communal area towards the eastern side.
