Welcome to a step back in time. Williamstadt House is a beautiful Historic Country Manor House nestled near the banks of Lough Derg in the heart of southwestern Ireland. This Georgian Beauty is set amidst mature lush gardens and lawns with a variety of specimen and fruit trees and surrounded by centuries old beech, ash and oak trees.

The house boasts a private fifty acre wood which runs along the lake with trails for hiking and horse riding and its own private harbor for boating and kayaking. The park like setting allows the visitor to truly enjoy and experience a place out of time, where life takes a slower pace. Relax and take a swing beneath a 300 year old chestnut tree and watch the light play on the hills of Tipperary across the lake, enjoy an evening badminton game on the lawn, drinks and dinner under the evening sky, shimmering with stars. Soak in a beautiful Victorian bathtub and get cozy in front of a turf fire in one of the comfortable well appointed reception rooms.

Williamstadt House is ideally Located for touring many of the sights and attractions that Ireland is famous for: The Cliffs of Moher, the Burren, The Connemara, Bunratty Castle and Folk Park, Ailwee Caves, Galway City, King John's Castle and Limerick City. It is also perfectly located to take advantage of some of Ireland's more “hidden” attractions: Holy Island, Bohatch, Portumna Workhouse, Coole Park, Yeats' Tower and Pallas Castle.

Williamstadt House and the local area provide a paradise for hiking, cycling, horse riding, water sports, fishing, golfing and wildlife viewing. For touring Ireland, it is the perfect base, being just an hours drive from Shannon Airport, an hour from Galway City, an hour from Limerick and 2 1/2 hours from Dublin.

Williamstadt House is located one mile from the village of Whitegate, an easy stroll or cycle down small country lane. Nearby towns include the beautiful lakeside village of Mountshannon and the Historic Killaloe, with restaurants, pubs, shops and local farmers markets. This area is renowned worldwide for its Traditional Music and sessions happen in the pubs on many an evening. The world famous Feakle Music Festival happens here yearly. There are many Golf Links in the area, Portumna and East Clare among them. In season there are thousands of acres of private land available for Deer Stalking as well as Duck, Pheasant and Woodcock Shooting.

The Courtyard at Williamstadt House many features including a two bed two bath cottage in the 200 year old Coach House, Known as the GameKeeper's Cottage (HomeAway listing 960200). It is newly rennovated with all the modern amenities, and makes a nice addition to the main House.

"The Best Vacation Place on the Planet"

Dump the Iphones, electronics, and all other baggage you have subconsciously accumulated in the suburbs and walk back into a simpler, quieter time. Welcome to the “real” Ireland outside the crowded, big cities and commercialism.

Our family flew from the States to Williamstadt House and stayed for the entire month of June.

My wife and I brought our 4 children---ages 11, 13,14, 16 and we had no idea what to expect.

What we found was literally paradise. Beyond the obvious grandeur of this awesome farm estate we met two of the kindest, most interesting people we have ever had the privilege of spending time with. Kevin and Carole Clarke (the owners) went above and beyond to show us the vacation of a lifetime. Carole hooked us up with a local blacksmith for a private day of learning and working with tools. Kevin took my boys out chopping wood and shared with them some of his amazing stories of adventure from his 10+ years living in Africa.

Spending time with Kevin and Carole was like taking a slow, fragrant walk through a great Irish history book. We spent many a meals together talking and sharing life. They were two of the most gracious and humble hosts you can imagine. If we had a desire to see something or do something, they did everything they could to make it happen.

The property is authentic and amazing. Lovely, live animals are all over the property…ducks, chickens, cool dogs with great personalities, a horse, etc..

The accommodations, artwork, and exotic animal mounts were absolutely amazing. My morning coffee was imbibed in what I found out to be a 100yr old Irish coffee cup, that just happened to be hanging around with all kinds of other interesting antiques in the kitchen. I took my nightly Jameson in a beautiful old antique whiskey glass from a distillery that has been closed down for over 50 years…another Irish artifact that seem to be all over the house. Kevin noticed I liked the glass so much he gave it to me when I left to take home!

We purchasing fresh duck, pork and chicken from the local butcher a couple miles away. We cooked great dinners in cast iron pans over an open fire in the “man cave” out in the back. Although the place has a wonderful, fully furnished kitchen, we loved the ambiance of dinner and drinks in the “cave” out back.

We took walks in the vibrant, emerald, countryside that surround the house. We took boat rides to the pubs across the water, and fished the Lough Derg frequently for pike and brown trout. We ate and drank in town at one of the 2 local pubs with some of the friendliest folks on the planet. It is a wonderful little town with no pretentions but plenty of interesting characters to chat with. Where else on the planet is there a community bicycle parked permanently outside the local pub to assist folks who need to peddle off their pints?

If you've lived in the city or suburbs too long, it will take a while to re-adjust to the “real world” that exists around the city of Whitegate. Take off your suit and grab a t-shirt and talk with the locals…many of whom come in on tractors or wearing rubble boots from a hard day of work on the farm and fields.

Words cannot describe the beauty and peace that we enjoyed every moment of every day at the Williamstadt house. My wife and I have traveled the world and seen many wonderful places, nothing compares to the experience we enjoyed in this little sliver of paradise tucked away inside little ol Whitegate, Ireland. Where else can you take 4 kids who become so enamored with nature that they forget to turn on a TV for the first 2 weeks? It would be impossible to write down all the numerous goodies this place has to offer, but I know this, rarely a day passes when one of my children won't ask me “Dad when are we going back.”
