We proudly present this substantial 6-bedroom, 6-bathroom luxury home set in a tranquil setting on the west coast of Ireland on one of Ireland’s best-known islands, Achill Island.
This standout property has three magnificent south-facing reception rooms, offering views stretching down towards Keel Lake and the 3.5km blue flag white sandy Trawmore beach. Towards the west of the island is the picturesque Keem Bay which was used as a filming location for the 2022 film “The Banshees of Inisherin” which has gained worldwide recognition. The elevated property sits on circa 1.18 acres with a breathtaking backdrop of Slievemore Mountain.
Built in 2006 Brigadoon far exceeds expectations with its high-quality finish throughout. The very well proportioned, versatile accommodation over two floors offers a great balance between formal and informal living.
A grand, bright entrance is the perfect reception to greet guests with its sweeping Italian marble staircase, the ornate chandelier sits squarely in the centre of this elegant foyer. Italian marble tiles follow throughout most of the ground floor. To the right of the foyer is the formal living room with an ostentatious black marble fireplace, high ceilings and solid Canadian red oak woodwork throughout the home. Views from the bay window down towards the lake and bay are magnificent.
Following on into the main focal point of the home, the bespoke kitchen has high end integrated appliances, polished marble tops and a centred breakfast bar which connects seamlessly to the second reception room. The dining room which is adjoining a 3rd reception room (Sunroom) is ideally positioned again with views out over the gardens towards the lake and bay.
The master suite is located on the ground floor, having an advantage from yet another bay looking out to the glorious southerly views. The master suite has a walk-in wardrobe and a separate shower room. Adjoining the master suite is a study or home office ideal for working at home, the main family bathroom is luxurious with a jacuzzi tub and Italian marble covering from floor to ceiling. A second bedroom with ensuite and utility room just off the kitchen completes the ground floor.
The first floor offers four beautifully appointed bedrooms, three of them having access to an ensuite and bespoke fitted wardrobes. Three rooms to the front having outstanding elevated views overlooking the delightful Achill Island’s beautiful nature. A games room connected to the 6th bedroom completes the 1st floor.
The gardens are a significant feature of Brigadoon, from the granite stoned entrance with electric gates, the sweeping long driveway which leads to an attractive granite pitch porch. A beautiful water feature sits pleasantly in front of the sunroom which is an idyllic setting far from the hustle and bustle.
Trawmore Beach [5-min drive] also known as Keel Beach, extends over 2miles/3.5Km. This beach connects The Keel village with Dookinelly village [5-min drive] and has fantastic views of the Minoan Cliffs. Watersports enthusiasts, especially surfers, are drawn to this beach.
Keem Bay [15-min drive], is one of Achill’s “Blue Flag” beaches (a voluntary eco-label awarded to beaches that tick all the boxes for quality and cleanliness). It was voted Ireland’s number one beach in the annual Irish Independent Reader’s Travel Awards in 2023. A global travel site ranked Keem Bay 11th out of 50 best beaches in the world.
Achill Island is the largest island off the coast of Ireland. Situated along the Wild Atlantic Way on the west coast, it typifies the raw wilderness of the Atlantic coastline. It is linked to the mainland by a bridge. A visit to Achill can be as active as you choose with a host of outdoor pursuits and water sports of all types including swimming, windsurfing, surfing, kite surfing, kayaking, canoeing and golfing. It can also be a place of retreat for anybody looking for peace and solitude.
