Property news just keeps getting crazier. 

A seafront village in Connemara has been put on the market for just €800,000, less than you'd pay for a decent dwelling in Dublin's fair suburbs. 

Brú na Mara, located on Mace Head, near Carna, Co Galway, is a tiny village, consisting of five separate housing units. 

According to, it contains a five-bedroom family home, another detached two-story house, a self-contained ground floor apartment, a two-bedroom first floor apartment AND a detached cottage. 

The 32 acre site also features a number of outhouses.

For the same price, you could purchase a semi-detached house in Rathmines, a 3-bed terraced house in Ranelagh or a cramped Killiney home. 

So if you're fed up of the Dublin housing scene, this seafront settlement could be a great steal. 

Brú na Mara has been owned by the same family for 200 years and was recently renovated by its owner, Riona Green, who was born there 75 years ago. 

It now boasts stunning interiors and all the modern amenities you could wish for.

Prospective buyers should note that Brú na Mara lies in the heart of the Gaeltacht, so brushing up on your Irish may be a wise idea. 

The area of Carna is located five kilometres away, providing amenities such as shops, a post office, health centre and a national school. Galway city is approximately 90 kilometres away by car. 

Anyone interesting in snapping up this unusual offer up can view the property here or contact Ganly Walters at (01) 662 3255.
