Former monastery is now a stunning half a million Euro home

A former monastery that has been converted into a luxury home has been put up for sale with an asking price of €550,000.

The sale is being handled by agents Sherry Fitzgerald and the property is available to view through appointments only.

The four bedroomed property, named Garranlahan More, is a great setting to raise a family.

The current owners have decided to sell after spending ten years renovating and modernising the former monastery into a fantastic home.

The property was originally built in the mid-19th century and used as a Francican Monastery.

It was used as a school right up to the 1970s when it was sold to an American couple.

The current owners, Canadian couple Heather and Rodney Gale have transformed the property into a wonderful family home while keeping many of the original features.

The home includes a spacious dining room perfect for hosting family and friends. There is also a large lounge with fireplace which is perfect to cosy up in at the end of the day.
