Emlaghmore Pier, Roundstone, Co. Galway.
A once in a lifetime opportunity to purchase the title of a substantial pier with vehicular access onto a council maintained road and ideally situated between the two boating communities of Roundstone and Ballyconneely. The pier has lands equating to a 0.3 Acres with 0.11 Acres of private garden included where the purchaser may get permission to construct a boathouse. The property will appeal to those wishing to moor a vessel of substantial length, is accessible at most states of the tides and would have commercial potential.
The pier is just 6 miles from Roundstone and only 8 miles from Clifden.
Roundstone is an exceedingly charming village tucked away on the rugged Connemara coastline. The village is both friendly and inviting with a wide range of amenities including shops, post office, school, hotels, and restaurants most of which overlook the wide harbour and have stunning views over the Connemara landscape.
Clifden is regarded as the Capital of Connemara, with banks and a large selection of shops, pubs, and an increasing number of cultural and leisure facilities. Clifden is noted for its many fine seafood restaurants, the famous Connemara Pony Show which takes place there each August in the showground close to the property, and the Clifden Arts Festival in September, all of which attract many Irish and foreign visitors. The area is well provided for a wide range of sporting and leisure facilities, with fishing, boating and water sports most popular using the many beaches and bays which comprise this convoluted coastline.
The property is 50 miles from the regional capital of the West, Galway City, with its mainline road, rail and air connections and extensive and substantial cultural, commercial and retail facilities. Shannon Airport is some 21/2 hours from the property, while Knock Airport is about 11/2 hours and proposals have now been made for a new airport to serve Clifden on the outskirts of the town.
Golf is available at the Connemara Golf Club whilst there are six other courses within an hour's drive of the property.
THE PIER: The pier is comfortably set back from the main road and has a gated entrance leading down to the hard standing. The pier is approximately 70 metres in length and 4 metres in width with three sets of steps on two sides leading down to the water mark. There are seven mooring points situated along two sides of the pier. Access into the pier looks good with a wide clearing of rocks and the location provides moorings for an assortment of boats.
There is approximately 30 metres of road frontage to the R341 from Roundstone to Ballyconneely and to the side of the driveway in there is an enclosed area of about 0.11 Acres.
