A bit like how waiting for a bus tends to end with two arriving together, a pair of majestic West of Ireland properties are on the market just a few miles apart, both offering views to rival anything in the country.

Situated the Galway side of the Mayo border, Leenane is arguably Ireland’s most scenic village, peering as it does straight down Killary Fjord – the only Fjord in the country – and surrounded by the towering Maam Turk mountains to the south and by Mweelrea, the highest Mayo in Co Mayo, to the west. Whatever direction you look, each view seems as spectacular as the next.

The opportunity to make these views your own has now come about with two particular properties guaranteed to attract significant attention despite high-end price tags on each.

Killary View is a 3-bed, 3-bath detached house located just a three-minute walk from the heart of Leenane, occupying a stunning, elevated position just off the main road. On the market for €725,000, this 172 m² property includes cathedral ceilings, a mezzanine, has a double height kitchen and sitting room area, granite counter tops and and a mix of natural slate tiles and teak hardwood floors in all the downstairs living area.

Even more appealing perhaps to potential buyers is that included in the sale price is an adjoining site that has full planning permission for a 214.96 sqm house and a garage of 35 sqm.

Meanwhile, just five minutes outside the village of Leenane, is a house being offered for €130,000 less but with more bedrooms, bathrooms, floor area and equally stunning views.

Located in Derrynacleigh, this spacious 4-bed residence occupies an elevated 3.5 acres site overlooking Killary Fjord straight out to the Atlantic Ocean, and has breathtaking panoramic views of Mweelree, the Maamturks and Twelve Ben mountains.

For sale at €595,000, the 255 m² residence was completed in 2011 to the very highest standard. It has underfloor heating, hollow-core floors and five en-suite wetrooms.

With Westport approximately 35 kilometres away, Clifden 28km, and Ireland West Airport an 80-minute drive, Leenane enjoys an international profile as the setting for Hollywood blockbuster ‘The Field’.
