This week we find ourselves in beautiful County Galway, Ireland, on a 56 acre working farm. Positioned in the middle-west of the country, Rayconor Farm is 45 minutes from Galway City (home of the oldest horse fair in Ireland!), and only 2.5 hours from Dublin. Take advantage of the many show jumping and dressage competitions in Ireland and throughout the region, fox hunt with the famous Galway Blazers, explore the lush green countryside, breed the next generation of champions; whatever your dreams are, Rayconor is a place to see them come alive!
RAYCONOR Farm is a unique and fabulous period property perfectly positioned on its 56-acre estate in Galways lush countryside. It commands spectacular bucolic views from its elevated site position. RayConor is superbly private and is accessed through private gates and a tree-lined avenue.
This property oozes character and style and has been the secluded guest house for many celebrities over the past decade. The residence was originally built in the 1850’s and remained in the same ownership until its current owner acquired it in 2006.
Its owner , celeb stylist to the stars, has sensitively renovated and remodelled and indeed extended this home to retain its old-world charm while providing all modern conveniences.
The estate is bounded on two sides by a river, which serves as a freshwater swimming area for owner and guests.
RayConor is one of those rare opportunities to acquire a private estate in this stunning countryside.

(This room has a charming half door access to side patio area), on the opposite end of the foyer is a quirky kitchen area with its own charming fireplace, – there is a utility area off the kitchen, the kitchen also leads to the aforementioned patio area via glass double doors. A separate stair facilitates access to a gorgeous bedroom/den overhead which has ensuite facility also.
At first floor level there are 4 bedrooms, (one currently used as the owners full dressing room), a full bathroom suite is found off the master, the guest bedroom has ensuite and there is an equally alluring bathroom at this level also.
The property’s grounds comprise a double stone car port, an 6 box stables and yard, tack room, outdoor storage shed, 4 bay hayshed, small sand arena, and extensive mature gardens.
