    Boasting uninterrupted views of the Aran Islands, this detached property is on the Wild Atlantic Way and is less than ½ mile from a pretty beach. The area is called Trá Bháin, which is translated as ’White Beach’, and there is also a coral beach in the area.

This detached, contemporary house has all the comforts of home, yet is totally removed from everyday living as the ocean and the hills are your neighbours, and is accessed by a rough track.
