Mary O'Keeffe purchased this house in 2005
Why Mary O'Keeffe chose Mountshannon
Mountshannon is one of the prettiest villages in Ireland, once won the coveted overall Tidy Towns prize, and always features at the top end of this National competition for beautiful places. Overlooking the harbour, and enjoying a wonderful vista of Lough Derg lake and the Tipperary Hills, the setting is spectacular. Great walking, cycling, sailing, fishing, golf and other leisure activities are available locally. One of the oldest monastic settlements in Ireland is on our doorstep, and the area also has excellent pubs and restaurants. The white-tailed eagles nest in Bushy Island which is visible from the property - no need to bring your binoculars to spot this rare bird nesting in Ireland for the first time in 150 years - there is a super viewing facility at the harbour. The house itself is bright, spacious, well-maintained and enjoys amazing views from the main living space. There is a separate living room - The Diner - for younger guests to enjoy DVD's and board games. The bedrooms are in 4 separate areas, including a separate building right beside the house that is a two-bedroom family suite. The space allows guests privacy whilst also having generous "together" living areas both inside and outside over-looking the harbour and hills.
What makes this house unique
. Take a boat trip to Holy Island and experience 1,500 years of history. Watch the white-tailed eagles from the viewing facility at the harbor. Take several day trips to The Cliffs of Moher, The Burren, The Alwee Caves, Galway, Bunratty Castle, Adare, and many other local attractions.
