Our home

Large country house in an idyllic location nestled at the foot of Tountinna, the highest peak in the Arra mountain range.
Boasting stunning views, our house is a prime location for walking, hiking, cycling or simply just relaxing and is just 3 and a half miles (6KM) from the twin lake towns of Ballina and Killaloe where you have access to pubs, restaurants, shops and access to the Lough Derg Blue Way offering many and varied trails, avdentures and activities on or around Lough Derg.
40 minutes from Shannon airport and an hour and a half from Galway and the Clare coastline, our house is a fantastic base for exploring the west of Ireland.

Boasting 5 double bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and 2 sitting rooms (both with log burning stoves) and plenty of outdoor space and sun areas, our house can comfortably accommodate up to 10 people.
