Property description

We welcome you to stay and enjoy our tastefully decorated and spacious Gort na gCapall luxury cottage where we have created a destination which is a real rural retreat. We value the wealth and uniqueness of our surroundings; our farm, fields, rivers and local community. It is a tranquil, safe and private place to stay, where children love the freeedom of the large lawn area and adults enjoy being close to nature in the heart of the Lakelands & Waterways Region. A short walk, cycle or drive brings you to the villages of Dromineer, Puckane, Ballycommon, Killaloe and access to Lough Derg on the River Shannon. We are located in the heart of North Tipperary and close to the shores of Lough Derg.
Are you an independent traveller looking for a holiday destination off the traditional tourist trail but in a spectacular, location and yet close to the tourist sites. Or have you a special family or sailing event on the horizon, that you would like to convene in a memorable, but central location? Do you like the sound of silence, the scents of nature and sporting & sightseeing opportunities in abundance? Would you like the space and comfort of a fantastic luxurious holiday home, with friendly advice and assistance on hand as required.
Our Cottage is an ideal base for the truly rural holiday located on 120 acre family farm in the heart of Tipperary countryside, guests are encouraged to explore the fields and experience rural life at first hand. It is a perfect base for walkers - the cottage is located on the Sli Eala walk, stop off at Hanly Tweeds, Ballyartella or have a pint or some delicious food at The Thatched Cottage, Ballycommon. Enjoy watching or our cows leaving and returning to the pasture each evening for milking and or simply soak up the genuine atmosphere created by this welcoming family.

Our cottage has been prepared to make your vacation truly memorable - high end furnishings, fully equipped cream kitchen with granite breakfast bar, microwave, cooking hob and oven, laundry room with washing machine and dryer, iron and ironing board, CD player, Radio, TVs and DVDs.

Gort na gCapall cottage at Annaghbeg, Drominner is a modern luxury home within a traditional Irish Cottage where the pace of life ambles. Three out of our four bedrooms have European King Sized beds (American Queen) which are very tastefully decorated with two en suites making your stay very comfortable. The master bedroom upstairs has a spacious walk in wardrobe and en suite with wonderful black out blinds for the ideal lie in!. We also have another bedroom downstairs with its own en suite. Our other bedroom has twin beds dressed with crisp white linen. Our open plan living area has a beautiful open fireplace and we supply our own wood for your convenience. The seating in this area is our fine brown leather couches or indeed our window seat for dining in this area.

The Cottage is very spacious complete with Patio for al fresco dining - furniture and BBQ provided. The main bathroom of the house with its marble tiled floor has a free standing bath with separate shower. The open plan kitchen/dining/sun room area contains facilities, equipment and fittings of excellent quality and standard.

For those rainy days, a full DVD Library to choose from and also a full bookcase or indeed a game of pool on our 6' pool table to entertain the younger ones. We can also arrange a cookery demonstration locally where you get to eat the food with a glass of wine - very relaxing.

Due to its location we can provide horse treking, cycle routes, walk routes, local sport, boat trips, fishing and many more activities from which to choose from. Watch the sailboats and fishing boats come and go at the very nearby village of Dromineer. Take a trip on the lake on a 50-seater tour boat.
Alternatively, rent a small sailboat or fishing boat and go exploring on your own. The fishing in the area is great, especially for pike and trout. Local experienced fishing guides will be glad to provide instruction and local knowledge. Facilities on site include an outdoor horse gallop or a trek on a pony and trap can also be organized for the visitor who wants to see the local countryside.
Incedently Our Cottage is also located 10 miles from the famous village of Moneygall where President Obama's ancestors came from. President Obama and his wife Michelle visited this village in May 2011.
The location of the Cottage facilitates a 2 mile wallk/drive to the lakeside village of Dromineer on Lough Derg which boasts Lough Derg Yacht Club, we are 5 miles from the nearest town of Nenagh. The Cottage is located a 50 yard stroll to the walking trail of Sli Eala.
It is such an ideal setting - day trips to the Cliffs of Moher, Killarney, the Burren, or the Dingle Peninsula or a shorter day exploring the smaller quaint towns of Terryglass (on Lough Derg) and then Killaloe (on the river Shannon) both a short 15-20 minute drive and the castles in Birr and Limerick about a 40 minute drive. The M-7 (major highway) is only minutes away which cut the long day trips travel time easily by half. Vist the local Pubs for Pub-Grub ie. the Whiskey Still in Dromineer, the Thatched Cottage in Ballycommon and the Orchard/Fairways Pub near the Nenagh Golf Club. These pubs also specialise in irish music where one can dance or indeed relax and chat the locals. Nenagh is a quaint and friendly town and just walking through the town and having coffee/tea and a ‘sweet’ in The Pantry, Country Choice or Quigley’s Bakery or visiting the butcher at Hanlons to buy wonderful local meats are all a treat.
We love having guests to stay, sharing life at our cottage, who will enjoy our friendship and a lovely place to stay.
