Property description

This stunning 5* Riverside Holiday Home is located on the eastern banks of the beautiful River Shannon in the scenic town of Ballina, County Tipprary & looks across the river to historic Killaloe in County Clare and the mountains beyond making it the perfect vacation getaway location. Our beautiful comfortable modern architecturally designed home is finished to a five star level & is available for weekly rent throughout the year. It will appeal to couples and families seeking peace, tranquility, comfort set in beautiful safe location. It has been designed in an open plan style. We have used high ceilings, large skylights & lots of glass to allow in as much light as possible and bring the magnificant river & mountain views right into the home. It is fitted throughout with allthe modern convienences you could want including SKY satellite TV and also has hi-speed wireless Internet for those who feel the need to keep in touch with the modern world. The house sleeps upto 8 adults in comfort and but can sleep upto 10 if needed. We have cot/crib for babies as well as a high chair. The house is naturally warm and has gas central heating for those chilly mornings. The rate we quote includes all utilities, linens and taxes, we do not charge extra.

The mature secure gardens feature a Liscannor stone patio outside the kitchen and living rooms allowing the large doors to be opened out on sunny days bringing the gardens and views into the home. A stone path makes its ways through the grass to a large wooden deck looking down onto the river below where a large BBQ allows for outdoor cooking & dinning. The garden and decking have outdoor lighting and an outdoor power supply.

Local amenities and activities include shops, supermarkets, restaurants, pubs, river cruising, fishing, sailing, canoing, walking, hiking, cycling, boat hire, golfing and much more. The purpose built tourist office is located on the historic 13 arch bridge that's links Ballina & Killaloe. It houses the tourist office, local library and the newly developed Brian Ború Centre. Every Sunday morning a local farmers market offering all sorts of local produce from food to gifts takes place 'between the waters' opposite the tourist office and should not be missed. Ballina has many good restaurants and pubs including the exceptional 'Cherrytree restaurant'. Killaloe has a network of charming narrow streets, flanked by old shops & houses, that climb up the steep hillside & look down over the 13th century cathedral. Water sports are the key to the popularity of Ballin & Killaloe. Boats of all kinds from rowing boats to Shannon cabin cruisers are available for hire and water-skiing has long been popular. Short tours of the River Shannon and Lough Derg are available from the Ballina side aboard the 50-seater passenger boat Spirit of Killaloe. During July the Brian Boru Festival brings traditional music and a variety of entertainment, inside and outside, to the towns for a week. Towards the end of July the Killaloe International Music Festival centered on the historic cathedral, concentrates on the classics and is growing in reputation around the world. Every September, Killaloe is the venue for the European Pike Angling Championships. The historic towns of Killaloe & Ballina offer an exceptionally beautiful riverside setting and access to Ireland’s greatest waterway. The River Shannon is a popular cruising, boating & angling destination extending from Donegal in the North, with canal extensions to Galway in the west, Dublin in the east and Waterford in the south extends to Limerick where it enters the Atlantic Ocean.
The property is located just 30 minutes from Shannon airport, 20 minutes from Limerick, 1 hour from Galway, 1 hour 45 minutes from Dublin Airport, it is an ideal base for exploring Ireland and it's Celtic heritage.

We look forward to welcoming you to this unique part of beautiful Ireland.

Year Purchased: 2000

About: We are an Irish family living in the United Arab Emirates. We built this house as our home in 2000 and lived in it for 5 years prior to moving to Dubai where we now live. We decided to keep the house & rent it weekly to foreign visitors because we felt that its unique location and design offered something special and different to the decerning traveller. We have rented property all over the world and know what we like. We have put our experiences into the product that we offer, such as the unique touches you find in a home as opposed to your standard generic holiday rental and we do not charge extra for utilities and linen, it's all included in your quote.

Why Killaloe:
This property is not just a holiday rental, it is a home. It is fitted out to a 5 star level with all modern conveniences and top quality bedding and linens. Every room has a view, which believe or not is even beautiful in the Irish rain! The property is uniquely positioned within walking distance to great shops, pubs and restaurants but the main attraction is its tranquil location overlooking the beautiful River Shannon.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
A great homely getaway with stunning views set in a quiet location guaranteed to relax you, yet only minutes walk from all the amenities you could require. The house is well positioned as a relaxing base to see all Ireland has to offer to the traveller.
