Property description

This house stands on 1 acre of lawn dotted with trees and shrubs. There is a wonderful little stream running at the end of the back garden - the ideal place to spend some 'quiet time' under the large over-hanging trees and listen to the stream. We have installed a bench and table on the river-side deck, for ease of reading the daily newspaper, an interesting book or just having a cup of coffee.

The house is within easy walking distance of the village where there is a number of small restaurants, one hotel and some pubs, where, on occasion,during the season, there are Irish music sessions.

There is a wonderful extensive playground in the village park for children, also an exercise area for the 'not so young'! The park, known as Inis Cealtra, has a wonderful maze which is fun for everyone, and very informative.

The marina is overlooked by the park and easily accessible and local boats and operators are available for exploring the beautiful lake. There is also a safe sandy area next to the marina for swimming.

Lough Derg is one of the largest lakes in Ireland - famous for it's May Fly fishing, our visitors have the use of an 18ft. fibreglass boat for those eager fishermen and women!

The oldest monastic settlement in Ireland, on Holy Island, is a short 10 min. boat ride away and well worth a visit. For those who do not favour getting there themselves there are regular boat trips available from the marina which is a short distance from the house.

Mountshannon is home, quite famously, to the White Tailed Eagle. With luck the birds can be viewed from the specially constructed 'hide'. Something to be seen in Mountshannon only.

Within 30 min drive you have East Clare Golf Club, ideal for golfing enthusiasts, and for the less enthusiastic there is fun to be had at the 9-hole pitch and put course which is even closer to the village.

The house is newly built, very comfortable, large rooms, well lit inside and out, and has 'wrap-around' deck to enjoy outdoor living.

Wildlife abounds in the fields surrounding the house and gardens, we have had visits from some deer lately, have spied hawks and many other species of the feathered kind, not to mention the odd rabbit or hedgehog. None of the above can be guaranteed, however, they have been seen!!

This is an ideal base for touring the South West of Ireland, 60 mins will get you to Galway, or to the sandy beaches of Lahinch,Spanish Point and many more. Limerick city is approx. 40 mins and the journey takes you through the charming towns of Killaloe and Ballina, well worth a visit. I could wax lyrical on all that is to be seen but the best way is to come and see for yourself!!



The house is approx. 45 mins. from Shannon Airport and there are several flights to and from London daily from Shannon.

We look forward to having you visit, if that is your wish.

Owner info

About the owner: We are a retired couple who enjoy travelling, gardening and keeping our properties in good shape.

Why the Owner Chose Mountshannon:
We actually built this property because of the location, it is just 500 yds off the main road yet, when in the house or gardens one feels 'away from it all'! There is a wonderful little stream running at the bottom of the garden with large trees overhanging it, the perfect place to sit and enjoy a peaceful relaxing time.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Again, we relax completely when in our property in Mountshannon - it is the ideal get-away from it all place.
