There are 3 bedrooms 2 with en-suites and a separate family bathroom. A comfortable open plan lounge, dining and kitchen area creates a spacious and light interior. Kitchen equipment etc for self catering to the best standard. A cosy open fire and full central heating ensure comfort all year round.

We also have a travel cot, high chair and baby bouncer for baby up to 6 mths and small collection of baby toys, plus board games and DVDs for older children.

The tranquil location of these cottages provides privacy without remoteness. Found situated approx 1 mile from the magnificent Lough Derg, Ireland's second largest lake with shores in Clare, Galway and N. Tipperary.

The area attracts water sports enthusiasts and there are numerous quays dotted along less than 1 mile away which include Coolbawn Quay, the popular wedding venue and spa.

Fishing is popular along the Shannon and lake. Private angling and boating are available locally. Canoes and buoyancy aids can be made available for the use of our guests at our own discretion i.e to experienced canoeists.

The Limerick/Tipperary region

Limerick city at just under 1 hours drive away is the historic home of King John's Castle which is a must see for anyone interested in the history of Ireland. There are regular guided tours, a video describing the history and a shop to purchase souvenirs and preserves. The added advantage of visiting the castle is that it is located conveniently to take a look at Limerick city itself and enjoy the variety of shops, restaurants and traditional pubs.

Another historical experience is the Bunratty Folk Park just outside Limerick. The most complete medieval fortress in Ireland and where 19th century life is recreated. This is a great day out and one to include on the list.

Galway city is just over an hour away and it is a very lively and vibrant city, famous for its music which is evident throughout ! There are some great shops, with specialities including Connemara woollen goods and celtic jewellery. Don't miss the regular artisan craft and food street market on Saturdays.

There are many other places of interest more locally such as Terryglass, Portumna and Dromineer all of which are on the lake shore and many water sports are available from these with Portumna offering a wider range of facilities such as golf.

There are many festivals and events throughout the year in this region ranging from horse racing and the oyster festival at Galway to the annual Terryglass arts festival. Dromineer hosts numerous yacht and boating events.

There is a wealth of information available on the internet to get the most out of your holiday in Tipperary unless you simply want a peaceful retreat in the heart of the gorgeous countryside - the choice is yours !

Nenagh

10 miles away is the historic market town of Nenagh. The Anglo-Norman castle has been recently restored and well worth visiting together with the Nenagh Heritage museum found in the former county gaol.

View Trip Advisor for further info on this, Nenagh Walking Tour as well as other places of interest.

Take a walk up Kenyon St for a shopping expedition. Enjoy the many cafes and try the local restaurants, or bar hop along it's interesting pubs and finish off with a trip to the cinema.Look at for plays etc performed at the local Arts Centre.

Golfers may like to try Nenagh Golf Course.

Don't miss the weekly Country Market held every Friday 8am - 1.30pm, where you can discover locally produced jams, chutneys, vegetables and flowers as well as home baked treats for you to try!

Nenagh is a large town with all the amenities you would expect to find such as banks and supermarkets.

"Relaxing and a 5 star accommodation"

Wow, what can we say! Wonderful......We came for a family gathering and at the same time a to relax and enjoy all that part of Ireland can offer. It was certainly relaxing as the cottage was set in ma… More

Thank you for the kind words and enthusiasm for Blackberry Cottage and our special corner of Ireland. We are so pleased you enjoyed the lake which is gorgeous at all times of day and at any season of the year. There is of course much more to see and do both in our immediate area and the rest of the county, if you want to alternate day trips with relaxing local walks and sampling the local eateries. Next time, perhaps try a trip to Galway or County Clare, you will find many places accessible for a day out.
There will always be a genuine welcome for you whenever you are ready to visit us again at whatever time of year you choose.

"Great cottage for a peaceful family get-away"

Our family (2 adults and 3 older children/teenagers) stayed in this cottage for 4 days and wished we had longer. It was a great place to stay with loads to do in the area. Having said that the locat… More

Thank You ! Great to have guests who are keen to explore our locality and we are always happy to offer help and advice on local places and activities on foot and by car. Yes, we are located in a rural location close to the lake and understand that it can be quite hard to find us particularly if guests arrive at night ! We are always happy to meet and guide guests and have done so on several occasions.
For directions,we suggest guests look at our website page (which we are permitted to provide once a booking has been confirmed) on the 'contact and book' page where very detailed directions including road numbers and GPS co-ordinates are to be found. We do provide contact phone numbers and e mail for guests to reach us .
Hope to see you all again and maybe take the kayaking to the next level !

"beautiful cottage that includes everything one needs."

The cottage is the countryside, quite, surrounded by green fields with a lake near by. The only problem with the cottage is that its far from tourists sights. Has all amenities available. Looking forward to returning for another visit.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. We were delighted to welcome visitors from Israel and that you were pleased with the cottage.
In actual fact, Coolbawn is fairly centrally located for visiting the rest of Ireland !Additionally, there is an abundance of activity, not simply confined to the lake, also a wealth of history right on the doorstep. I truly hope you will return to us and take a look more locally next time.
