Location description from owner

The Western Ireland region

An area of startling beauty, Galway/Clare has it all. From the Cliffs of Moher, a 214m testament to Mother Natures creativity, to the Burren, an otherworldly limestone landscape, this is a region where beauty and history meet. Galway City, known for its friendly people, charming streets, shopping and energetic nightlife, is revving up for another fun-filled festival season making it the perfect place for a lively few days away.

Lough Derg and the lower Shannon has a handsome inland sea set in an attractive blend of mountain and hillside, woodland and farm with 32,000 acres of spectacular waterway.

Portumna

Portumna is literally just a stone’s throw away where you can enjoy a stroll in the lake fringed forest park and wildlife sanctuary, visit the castle or enjoy a meal in one of the many restaurants.
Mountshannon is just a short spin in the other direction where you can enjoy all the amenities that the river Shannon is deservedly famed for.

Lakeview House is an ideal location for touring the West of Ireland, Connemara and the Shannon region. You are just 40 minutes from Galway, Ennis and Limerick.
big excitement in our area as white tailed eagles, very rare are now awaiting their chicks to hatch, 6 miles from our house in mountshannon.
You and your family can enjoy carting in nearby Tynagh, pony trekking in Flower Hill Equestrian Centre or horse riding in Slieve Aughty Riding Centre or Lough Hill Pony Trekking Centre.
Trigger your children’s imagination with the famous telescope in Birr Castle and the extensive monastic settlement on Holy Island. Let your own inner child run riot.
For those wishing to trace family roots, Woodford Genealogy centre is a five minute drive.

“Relaxing place in the middle of the heart of Ireland”

Reviewed 14 Jul 2015

The house is located 18 km from Portumna, directly at Lough Derg. It is well equipped, has four bedrooms, three washrooms and toilets, a big kitchen, a very nice dining room and a leather-interieur-equipped saloon. Located in the middle of a green landscape and showing the near lake, it gives the best opportunity to cool down from day to day business life. Bed linen, towels, knives, forks, spoons etc are provided. Some of the chairs might wait for a repair and some kitchen inventories might be upgraded, but to put it in a nutshell: It is nice staying there for a week or two. Bycicles and kayaks are provided, cold and hot water is perfect, wash-machine and dryer do their jobs. Wifi is available at the very warm athmosphere giving landlord's pub (2km, Gorteeny). The owner, Garry Gorman, provides help wherever needed and is a chap to have a beer with. For runners: Perfect running tracks, starting directly at the house (just follow the road to the south for 700 meters and then take one of the loops to the left or to the right). For sightseeing: This ais a good start for tours to Tullamore, Birr Castle, Galway, Kilcolgan, Cliffs of Moher, Limerick, Portumna Castle. Shopping is best done in Portumna.

“Fabulous House”

Reviewed 24 Oct 2013

This was our first trip to Ireland and will not be the last. The house was everything we wanted it to be and more, cozy bedrooms great living room very comfortable. Unfortunatly we were not able to take advange of the boats just not enough time. But we were able to pick fresh black berries for breakfast every morning. The locls in the bar in town are nice and very freindly. Gary and his mom are great. We were able to spend some time chatting with her in at the bar. Lots of great plaes to see.. Can't wait to come back.

“loverly house, wonderfull surrounding, a very friendly owner”

Reviewed 28 Aug 2012

we stayed for 1 week at this very spacious house. well maintained with all necessary appliances to make it also a comfortable stay. also recommended is to visit the Burren (take the farmers trail and get yourself some goat cheese), Connemara, Galway and do get yourself a drink at the owners pub :-) The owner is very friendly and cooperative with any question you might have. All the Irish people we met were very friendly btw. If you want to dine out we also might suggest to go to the Chinese restaurant in Portumna and for a quick bite go to the half barrel pub in Whitegate. We can strongly recommend this house to anyone. for Internet access also go to the owners pub as this is not available at the house itself. (unless you have mobile access)
