About the neighbourhood
We are in the countryside overlooking the Shannon River, 11 kms from Nenagh Town and half hour drive to Limerick. Nature lovers will enjoy the scenery and the many walks around. This location is very central for day trips within an hour drive you can reach Bunratty Castle & Folk Park , King John's castle and the Hunt Museum, Ennis, Portumna, Lough Gur... Within a few minutes drive you can visit Ballina and Killaloe and enjoy the lake's Blue Flag beaches in Castlelough or Two Mile Gate, visit Brian Boru heritage Centre, take a cruise on the river, climb to the Milennium Cross.. And more (just ask us!)
Getting around
We are in the countryside about 2kms from the village of Portroe (petrol station shop, takeaway, one pub, Church, hairdresser) and another 2kms from Garrykennedy Harbour (2 pubs, one serving food, marina, little playground) A car is necessary to explore the stunning areas around as there is no public transport here. But you could organise to arrive by bus in Nenagh (11kms) and get a taxi to us then you can walk around.
