About Tom Kelley
My wife and I were both born and raised in New Hampshire and we now live on Bainbridge Island outside of Seattle. Our careers from which we have both retired have taken us all over the world. We plan someday to live for an extended period of time in this property but in the interim, we enjoy Ireland and Connemara on a part time basis.
Tom Kelley purchased this House in 2000
Why Tom Kelley chose County Galway
I first came to Ireland in 1988 to learn about all four of my grandparents who emigrated from Connemara to the US in the late 19th century. Over the years thereafter we returned several times always ending in Connemara as my wife teasingly says like a salmon to the spawning area. We were and remain captivated by the haunting beauty of the mountains and the unparalleled seaside vistas. On such a trip in 2000 while working in Russia we spotted this property for sale not far from the home of my paternal grandfather. We fell in love with it and we are sure that anyone that comes here will feel the same way

Traumhaft schön. Rundum zufrieden
Wir sind zu zweit mit Baby gereist und dafür war das Haus perfekt. Ein absoluter Traum. Der Ausblick, Garten und die Umgebung ist wunderschön und wir waren sofort entspannt. Man merkt dass viel Liebe in dem Haus steckt. Ein paar Gehminuten gibt es einen super schönen weißen Sandstrand. Man könnte denken man ist in den Malediven, so klar das Wasser, so einsam der Strand. Nur eben zum Baden war das Wasser für uns zu kalt. Wir haben dann einfach den Sand und Strand genossen.
Wir kommen gerne wieder.
