Our home

Our home is modern (built in 2002), welcoming and spacious. It has a large kitchen with adjoining dining room & double height living room. We also have a separate sitting room where you can relax by the fire, read a book or play music/boardgames. In the playroom we have many toys and games including a Wii-U. Upstairs there are 4 large bedrooms. Three of these are doubles two of which are en-suite. The fourth bedroom has a single with a pull out bed underneath.
Outside we have a large deck which offers views of the river Shannon, Lough Derg and the Slieve Bearnagh mountains in County Clare. We have a barbeque and outdoor seating for 9. We have a spacious front and back garden with a large trampoline and slide for children (or adults!).
In the garage you will find bicycles and helmets for adults and children.

Who we are

  1. We're a family of 5 and we love living here in Ballina. There is lots in the area for our three girls to do, which means that we are kept busy bringing them to and from their (mostly musical & sporting) activities.

  2. The Coakley grown-ups: Marese is an Optometrist and Steve is a Product Development Manager.
    The Coakley children: Áine 17, Róisín 15, and Siobhán 13, all attend secondary school in Limerick city. Their favourite places are the local ice-cream parlour and the trampoline in our back garden.
    We also have 2 cats Sabrina and Timmy. They are very independent and just need food and water. Neighbours can feed them if you are away for a few days.

  3. We love food, music, running & cycling. Our house reflects our passions with a large, well-equipped kitchen, musical instruments are to hand in most rooms, there are bikes for your use in the garage and there's a wonderful lakeside path allowing for up to 20km of safe and picturesque walking/jogging.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Situated on the edge of the heritage town of Ballina/Killaloe, our home is the perfect location from which to explore this beautiful part of Ireland.
A short walk into town brings you to the lake (Lough Derg) around which all life revolves.
Watersports, fishing, hill walking, horse riding and many more activities are available locally.
Every Sunday you'll find the very best of local fresh produce at the Killaloe Farmer's Market.
Eating-out options are many and varied: fine dining, artisan bakeries, Italian deli/pizzeria and much more all within walking distance, thus ensuring your taste-buds will take home some good memories too.

Being on the Tipperary / Clare border there's a wealth of local musical talent in the area. Tuesday's are good for Trad and Friday's for Folk. Rock and Jazz sessions will lift you up, then chill you out and there are of course numerous Irish Pubs close by.
As a place from which to explore further afield Ballina/Killaloe is located right where counties Clare, Tipperary & Limerick meet. We are only 2 hours from Dublin and 90 minutes from Galway or Cork. Limerick city is just 30 minutes away. There is a great market in Limerick on Saturdays. Head west to sea-side towns of Kilkee, Lahinch, Doonbeg, Fanore and Doolin for surfing or exploring. Head south to Cork & Kerry for amazing coastline scenery and fabulous sea-food.
