Holiday Rental House
Built in 1807 by a Captain and Commander in Nelson's fleet , Nile Lodge, from which the surrounding area gets its name,offers an unusually high standard of elegant and spacious accommodation in one of the most imposing and historic private residences in the City of Galway. Nile Lodge has a wonderful rich history, which is clearly visible in the house, showing details from Napoleonic times over the past 200 years. It has also been home to a couple of very colorful Irish owners over the past 150 years! Nile Lodge is reputedly built along a design suggestive of the bridge of a ship. It originally had a sea view and still stands on over an acre of private, mature, beautifully landscaped gardens which provide a wonderful green oasis within minutes of the center of Galway.

Nile Lodge has a wonderful rich history, which is clearly visible in the house, showing details from Napoleonic times over the past 200 years. It has also been home to a couple of very colorful Irish owners over the past 150 years! Nile Lodge is reputedly built along a design suggestive of the bridge of a ship. It originally had a sea view and still stands on over an acre of private, mature, beautifully landscaped gardens which provide a wonderful green oasis within minutes of the center of Galway. There is an additional high-walled private garden to the rear of the property which is enjoyable for children and adults alike to enjoy space and privacy. Nile Lodge is an ideal venue for guests who appreciate privacy, whether this is to conduct business in Ireland or to enjoy a very private holiday in the heart of the City. The master bedroom is a private suite, with a linked luxurious living room, furnished to an exceptionally high standard. This makes the house ideal for those who wish to share the home, but like their own private space to read, relax or work away from their friends or family. The property is perfectly located within 500 yards of the start of the heart of Galway city center, just far enough to have the tranquility and quiet that this house offers, yet the convenience of being close to fine restaurants, live music events and dozens of delightful Irish pubs, where music and lively conversation is at its best. This beautiful house is also perfectly located for all that the West of Ireland has to offer. The day trips to picturesque Connemara, with its truly beautiful hills and lakes. The Cliffs of Moher, The Burren,The Aran Islands, Day trips on Lough Corrib and just rambling around the many pretty costal villages are memorable experiences. There is an abundance of really good golf courses within a short drive from the house. There are many private hire companies whose drivers are only too happy to bring you all out for day trips if you prefer not to drive yourself. Galway, with its famous Arts festival, Cuirt festival, Film festival,Oyster festival is currently European City of Culture . It is also home to the famous Druid Theatre and every year has a wonderful City parade, The Macnas Parade which is a great joy to watch. The wonderful seaside promenade, the longest in Europe, where every day joggers and walkers alike are keeping fit, is located just down the road from the house. The panoramic sea views can be enjoyed while taking in the refreshing sea air. There is plenty of game and coarse fishing, with its plentiful rivers and lakes. Lough Corrib, which opens into the sea via the river Corrib is just one mile from the house. This prestigious property is a unique and outstanding vacation home located in a vibrant city, on the Wild Atlantic Way, which passes 100 yards from the house. It offers luxurious rental accommodation for up to six guests. Further accommodation is available for an additional two guests if required at an additional rental rate. More
