Self catering holiday home, sleeps up to 8 in 4 bedrooms
About David Gaughan
This our personal holiday home. We built this property in 2003 to a very high standard and visit it regularly from our main base in Dublin whenever time allows. It is our escape from city life. We feel that the home's unique location and design offer something special and different to the discerning traveller. We have rented property all over the world and know what we like. We have put our experiences into the property, 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.
David Gaughan purchased this House in 2000
Why David Gaughan chose Ballina
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.
What makes this House unique
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.

This area is a hidden gem for anyone wanting to stay in a quiet and quaint area of Ireland. The landscape is beautiful and this house is a perfect location for the area. Highly recommend the Killaloe River Cruise.
Great House, Great Location
We spend a lovely weekend in Derg House, Great Location... walking distance to both Killaloe and Ballina.... would definitely recommend
Perfect place to relax.
The property is ideally located on the shore of Lough Derg with fantastic views of the surrounding hills and scenery. It is very comfortable and clean and well equipped.
I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking to stay in a luxurious home with great views that is ideally suited to getting out and about in the area.
We are delighted you enjoyed you stay in wonderful Ballina / Killaloe and look forward to welcoming you back again in the near future.

Property was great!!
The Dreg House was beautiful. We enjoyed our stay very much. The house is everything and more and the village is lovely as well. Manager is very responsive to any questions
Thank you for your review, We really work hard to make sure all guests enjoy their stay as much as you did. We hope to welcome you back again soon to Ballina / Killaloe. David & Roisin
We all had a fantastic time in your beautiful property, the views are absolutely stunning and so close to all amenities and a great location for trips out in the south .
The house was well equipped and is a perfect size for our family of 7 it was home from home ,The beds are really comfortable and all the rooms are really spacious throughout the house .We would of loved to spend more time in the beautiful garden but unfortunately the weather wasn’t at its best that week . The only thing we were a little disappointed with was the cleanliness of the house as we felt it needed a spring clean , other than that we has an amazing time thanks

We are so happy you enjoyed your stay. However we are disappointed you felt the property needed a spring clean and was not to our usual very high standard. If only you had brought this to our attention during your stay, we could have addressed your concerns. I have passed this onto Eamon who I know will be upset, as he prides himself in making sure every aspect of your stay is 5 star. We hope you will return again when the weather is better and enjoy this special location.
The beautifully located self catering vacation holiday home rental is on the Ballina (Tipperary) side of the river Shannon where it joins beautiful Lough Derg, one of the largest river & lake waterways in northern Europe with over 350 miles of lakes & rivers you can cruise on. The historic bridge joins Ballina with it twin heritage town of Killaloe (Clare) on the opposite side of this mighty river Shannon. This house is an ideal base to explore the local area & the rest of Ireland from. The local area has many high quality restaurants & public houses (pub) to greet you after a hard days play on the water, hiking & climbing in the near by mountains that flank the twin towns from both sides, biking the many byways, fishing the river or golfing on the near by greens. Brian Boro's Fort, Dingle, Killarney, King John's Castle, Bunratty Castle, the Ring of Kerry, the Burren, Connameara, Ennis, Lahinch, Liscannor, Limerick, Galway are all near by. Cork and Dublin are a short car journey away.
