Ballina-Killaloe is in the heart of the Shannon region with easy access to historic Limerick & beautiful Co. Clare with its spectacular West Coast including the Cliffs of Moher, Lahinch, Liscannor and many more. The Burren is a unique part of the world with its awe-inspiring limestone terrain.
Co. Tipperary is rich in heritage too with castles and cathedrals dotted here there and everywhere!
The temperate climate is perfect for touring. Ballina-Killaloe is only a short trip (30 mins) to the ancestral home of Barack Obama in Moneygall, Co. Offaly.
Killaloe has a beautiful Cathedral, and the former lock keeper's house by the thirteen-arched stone bridge has been rebuilt as the Brian Boru Heritage Centre. Here you will find all the information you need about the locality and about Brian Boru the last high King of Ireland, who ruled from this area a 1,000 years ago.
We recommend a trip to Brian Boru's Fort, a mystical place.
The Brian Boru Festival is on at the end of June usually and is always great craic!
Killaloe has several good restaurants and lots of pubs, several of which have outdoor seating for when the sun shines.
Lough Derg, which covers 32,000 acres, is one of the largest and most beautiful lakes in Ireland. Low hills and mountains with a shoreline of marvellous inlets and bays surround it. Sheltered narrow twisting roads surround the lake with intermittent villages, where one can stop off and explore the many historic sites and places of interest around the lakeshore.
The Lough Derg Way is a 64km walking route that starts in Limerick and follows the River Shannon and its canals northwestwards to the lake port of Dromineer on Lough Derg. Along the way the route passes through the hamlet of Clonlara, the village of O’Briensbridge and the ancient town of Killaloe, where interested walkers will want to linger at St Flannan’s Cathedral with its early Christian oratory. Lakeside and waterside sections of the route offer fine views.
There is also a cycle route that circles the entire lake.
Villages in East Clare like Scarriff and Mountshannon are lovely to visit and a family favourite is the Scarriff festival on the August Bank Holiday Weekend (30th July - 2nd August).
