The GameKeeper's Cottage is a newly rennovated space in an 18th Century Coach House in the Courtyard of Williamstadt House.

It boasts modern conveniences but period style and sits in the lush grounds near the banks of Lough Derg, boasting views of the Tipperary hills across the Lake. There is a fifty acre private wood on the property with trails that run along the lake and private coves, perfect for swimming, kayaking and fishing. This is a listed Historic property which dates back to the 1700?s.

The Gamekeeper's Cottage 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.

The local area provides 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.

The County Galway/County Clare region

County Clare is one of the most beloved and ruggedly beautiful of all the Counties in Ireland. It includes famously beautiful places like the burren and the Cliffs of Moher, Bunratty Castle and the Poulnabroun Dolmen. Less famous but equal in beauty is East Clare, home of Lough Derg and Brian Boru's homeplace, Killaloe. There are so many varied landscapes in a day's outing as well as some of the friendliest locals you will ever meet.


Lough Derg and it's surrounding countryside is truly one of the hidden gems of Ireland. One can pass through 3 counties, Clare, Tipperary and Galway with a single trip around the lake.
