Property Description

A Regency style residence of classic grandeur with renovated schoolhouse

The Old Convent

The Old Convent once formed part of the original Eyrecourt Estate and was originally built c.1700. The Eyre family are synonymous with Galway, giving their name to this town and the Galway City landmark Eyre Square.

The Old Convent is an impressive two storey over lower ground floor regency residence, which has been carefully restored and renovated by its previous owner. Features of this fine period dwelling include ceiling roses and decorative cornices.

Approached by steps with wrought-iron gate, you enter into an elegant entrance hall. A study and library lead off this. A bright and spacious conservatory is entered via the sitting room, which is a standout feature of the property. This is a most impressive conservatory where one can enjoy a summers evening basking in this light filled space. The fabulous gardens are accessed through French windows in the conservatory.

Stairs off the entrance hall lead to a lower ground floor, which has a dining room, kitchen, pantry, bathroom and boiler/laundry room. A back-entry hall also gives access via the rear of the house to the courtyard. Off the return on the top floor, there are three large en-suite bedrooms. The en-suite master bedroom features a walk-in wardrobe and fireplace.

The Schoolhouse

The present owner has refurbished the former schoolhouse and now provides additional accommodation to the main house which includes 3 en-suite bedrooms, kitchen, living room and bathroom. The property was previously used as a recording studio before the present owner refurbished the building in 2013. The Schoolhouse is independent from the main house.

Gardens and grounds

Set on 1.46 acres the grounds are laid to lawns to the rear of the main house and lead up to the mews at the rear of the site. Outbuildings on the grounds include an air-conditioned four-port garage and numerous multi-function rooms. There is also a tennis court and children' s play area on the grounds.
