Remote working lets you live
how you want, where you want

Picture what your typical Monday morning could look like.... Get up at 7.30, check emails, take a swim in the Atlantic Ocean, enjoy breakfast with the family, before logging on and taking a team meeting from your dedicated home-office.

Now that’s how to start your day!

If that sounds good, you might well find what you’re looking for in the village of Bearna just outside Galway city. Covid 19 has had a major impact on life worldwide and has truly changed how we work. While we were all once racing against the clock, beating traffic, and enduring heavy commutes, employers now understand that remote working increase productivity and maximises work/life balance for all.

Making the move

If you’ve been climbing the career ladder in Dublin or abroad but often thought about moving home, but were not sure about how it would impact your working life – this is your time. Remote working is now the default so there’s never been a better time to make the move.  In fact, some of the world’s biggest multinationals like Facebook, Google, Ericsson and many more have told employees to stay working remotely until well into 2021.

Our new development at An Maolán in Bearna, just outside Galway is a luxurious collection of 4 bedroom beautifully designed homes. It offers modern families an idyllic lifestyle in a stunning location and is the ideal place in which to make your home.

In recent weeks, we’ve seen many queries from those who have decamped to far flung fields from Frankfurt to San Francisco, and many more – and are now hearing the call from home loud and clear. Not to mention plenty more from those considering migrating home to the west from Dublin too!

As one put it…

“If I’m working from home anyway and only dropping in for meetings every month or so, why not work from the beautiful west coast of Ireland – I can be anywhere in Europe within a few hours, and the US is served by nearby Shannon.”

Well Connected

He’s right! And for when you do need to make that work trip, Dublin is only a two hour drive away or a leisurely train journey. And you’ll fly direct to London, New York and many more from Shannon Airport, just an hour’s drive away.

Dedicated office

Working from your kitchen table was only ever supposed to be temporary but it’s becoming clearer every day how beneficial a dedicated home office could be! You’ll get a proper routine back and the rest of the household can get on with life without tiptoeing around when you need a quiet room! Plus – at the end of the day you can shut the door on the office and make the most of life out and about.

Unwind out west

Aside from a beach just a stone’s throw away, and a beautiful village on your doorstep, living out west will have something for everyone. From sailing to golfing, you’ll find sporting pursuits to suit all. And even though the pandemic has reduced crowded sporting fixtures for now, big European rugby nights will surely be back in Galway soon.

Cycle routes, walking tracks and trails are plentiful so making the most of life in the West after logging out (and even before you log in), will be no trouble at all. And with great seafood restaurants just a 10 minute walk away from An Maolán, like O’Grady’s on The Pier and Donnelly’s Bar & Seafood Restaurant , you’ll get a taste for life by the ocean in more ways than one!

For the family

With an excellent primary school in the village and a number of wonderful secondary schools just a ten minute bus ride away, you’ll be well covered on the best educational choices for your family. Locally there is also a GAA club, rugby club, golf club, and the local tennis courts are just across the road from the development. Slightly further afield, Ireland’s cultural culinary capital Galway is just 9km from Bearna, and the famous prom at Salthill is even closer.

Let’s face it. Work often gets in the way of family life for us all. And we have all been guilty of racing out of the office, only to get stuck in traffic and miss the big game or start of the birthday party. Thankfully, remote working means you can make the most of family time – and not be wasting time on a soulless daily commute. And a dedicated home office space at homes means you can shut the door on work at the end of the day too!

It’s time to make a break for it and head West. What are you waiting for?
