Our home

Our home is comfortable and quite spacious. Downstairs we have a kitchen/dining area where there is a breakfast counter. There is a dining room off that and then a sunlounge which is a lovely place to sit in the evening sun and enjoy the garden views. There is a sitting room with fireplace and piano, plus a tv and sound system. There is a study/den room which also has tv,and wii. There is a toilet and washbasin off this. The computer with internet access is located in the hall. The master bedroom upstairs has a king size bed and shower ensuite. There is another king size bed in the second bedroom, a double bed in the third and a single bed in the fourth. There is a bath and electric shower in the bathroom. We have a very large mature garden with a herb garden and fruit orchard. There is a patio with a water feature which is a lovely place to relax in the sun. There is a brick built bbq stand there which has a design similar to an African braai stand.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

We live in the town of Ballina which is accross the River Shannon from the historic town of Killaloe, Co. Clare. The area is a place of natural beauty, with Lough Derg close by and the Clare hills forming a beautiful valley in which nestles the two towns. There are many beautiful walks and lots of outdoor activities in the area. There are many restaurants, pubs, shops and sites to visit, making a holiday here very enjoyable. The towns location is very central for touring the mid-west. Within 2 hours one can get to Killarney, Cliffs of Moher, Galway, The Burren,Cork, Dublin. A holiday in this area will provide lots of interests for the intrepid traveller!
