The Neighbourhood

If you choose to stay with us you are within easy reach of so many of the wonderful attractions our country has to offer.   We are based in what is now known as Ireland’s Hidden Heartlands.

Just take a look and see what is right on our doorstep!

If you want to be active, there is cycling, kayaking, walking, golf, horse-riding all around us.

Or if you are for the more gentle activities, there is so much history to explore and so many art and literary festivals around us, not to mind the amazing gardens, you will be spoilt for choice.

Looking across Galway Bay to Blackhead

There are the popular destinations – Birr Castle, Rock of Cashel, Kilkenny City, Galway City, Cliffs of Moher, Limerick City, Bunratty Castle and Folk Park – all within an hour or two of our home.

Fancroft Mill & Gardens

If you want to take a break from driving there are lots of hidden gems right here in the Midlands that are so worth checking out, all within a 20 minute or so drive.  Lorrha Monastic Village with over 1500 years of history, Redwood Castle,  Fancroft Mill and Gardens, Bellefield House, Lough Boora Parklands, Irish Workhouse Centre and Portumna Castle and Forest.

Lough Derg, Ireland’s biggest lake is just minutes from us, and the pretty villages along its shoreline are worth exploring.  Definitely enough to amuse and entertain for a couple of days.

Also bear in mind that if you are travelling and sightseeing in Ireland on the first Wednesday of the month… our Office of Public Works has free entry to their sites.
