Holiday House with large garden and fantastic lakeview - 'Shannonview '

Lakefront holiday home with kitchen and patio
Shannonview Selfcatering is ideally located in the centre of Ireland in county Tipperary on the banks of the river Shannon. Its central location makes it an ideal base for enjoying the local attractions in the area or for making daytrips to some of the best-known tourist destinations in Ireland such as the city of Galway on the West Coast, Connemara, Bunratty Castle or the Cliffs of Moher.

The house is sitting high up on a hill overlooking Lough Derg, the large lake formed by the majestic river Shannon. This fantastic location offers guests breathtaking, panoramic views over the lake and the surrounding countryside of green fields. The front of the house is West facing and one can enjoy wonderful flaming red sunsets over the water.

The property sits peacefully and secure on the hill set back from the road, surrounded by mature gardens with native shrubs and trees on a large site which makes it ideal for families with children.

In the conservatory to the front guests can enjoy some 'time out' reading (German and English books supplied) or simply listen to the birds singing and watch the boats and cruisers drift by on the lake. The spacious patio to the front is ideal for BBQs in the summertime.

The detached bungalow has 3 bedrooms (all en-suite with shower/sink/toilet), 1 main bathroom with bathtub, playroom/lounge, large kitchen/dining room, conservatory, living room with fireplace, large patio with garden furniture, television with Satellite reception for English/German channels and free high-speed WIFI connection. The kitchen has all modern appliances like dishwasher, washing machine, dryer, oven, hob and microwave. The heating is oil-fired central heating.

For anglers there is an additional large fridge/freezer in the garage which can be used as bait fridge. There is also plenty of space in the garage to store wet gear and fishing tackle.

The house is located in County Tipperary in the Midlands, overlooking the majestic river Shannon. It can be easily reached from either Shannon airport (1 hour), Galway airport (1 hour), Kerry airport (2 hours), Dublin airport or ferry port (2 -2.5 hours) or Cork (2.5 hours). The central location makes it an ideal base for exploring the local points of interest or daytrips to the West coast.

The house is located in the scenic Shannon area and its central location makes it an ideal base for a number of daytrips to some of the most idyllic locations locally or within a short driving distance. The lake Lough Derg - described as Ireland's Pleasure Lake - is 5 minutes by foot and the local Kilgarvan Quay harbour area is a scenic, peaceful and idyllic small quay which is used for fishing, boating or just a stroll around by locals and tourists alike in the summer time.

Portumna (15 minute drive away - also the nearest bait shop) is a prime coarse angling centre renowned for its quality angling. This area offers good fishing waters which have a good track record. There are several prime angling hotspots, a number which are official match stretches located on the river Shannon itself and the Northern Shores of Lough Derg. For anglers there is an additional fridge/freezer in the garage which can be used as bait fridge and there is plenty of space in the garage for wet gear and tackle storage.

Lake Boats can be rented locally in the area and there are good fishing spots in the area.

Other activities nearby include horseriding ( or or go-carting (

Terryglass Village, which is only a 10 minutes drive away is a well-known village on the banks of Lough Derg with two award-winning pubs offering good food throughout the day, Irish music sessions on most weekends and generally a warm welcome to locals and visitors alike. Paddy's Bar ( or The Derg Inn. In the summertime the village is buzzing with visitors who arrive into the well-developed harbour on their boats. The two pubs and the local shop and post office are only a 10-minute walk away from the pier.

A car is essential as the house is not in a village, the nearest village with pubs/restaurants and a small shop is a ten minutes drive.

The owners of the house are dog lovers and can therefore understand the dilemma of going on holidays having to leave your beloved pets behind. The large mature grounds are fully fenced in with either timber or wire fencing. There is a separate kennel area with a large dog-house in the back garden and the garage has a dog flap. Plenty of space is therefore available even for large dogs to run around the garden.

This is perfect
This home is perfect. It was clean and absolutely price friendly. I loved having a bathroom in each of the rooms. And it was in a nice and gorgeous location.

It was a lovely property - one of the coziest and cleanest that we had been to. Connie was a super host in every way. The location was exactly what we needed for a quiet family holiday. We are avid travellers and not many properties / hosts impress us the way this did. Highly recommend.

The Place Was Amazing
Connie was very helpful and friendly. She made sure that we had everything we needed and wasn't shy about asking if there was anything else she could do. Their place is truly a hidden gem and I would encourage anyone looking for a place to stay to choose there!

The ideal rural getaway
Beautiful property out in in Tipperary county. We flew out to Dublin for a week for work, then wanted to spend our second week in Ireland somewhere more quiet. We rented a car from Dublin Airport and drove(about 2 hours 10 min or so). Property was absolutely amazing, the pictures don't do it justice. It was larger than I was expecting; Connie, the host, was extremely accommodating and communicative via whatsapp throughout our stay, which was great as we were international travelers without a phone plan, so we could use the wifi. Would definitely recommend renting a car to get around. It was somewhere around an hour 15min to get to Galway, which is a great place to spend some time, or grab a tour and see the Cliffs of Moher. The property is the perfect place to relax, and seems like it would be great for a larger group as well. Would love to stay again next time I'm in Ireland!
